DEP Notice Of Enforcement Policy For 500 PPM Heating Oil Sulfur Limit

The Department of Environmental Protection published a notice in the May 14 PA Bulletin outlining a transition policy for enforcement of the July 1 deadline for selling heating oil that meets a 500 parts per million sulfur content standard (25 Pa. Code Section 123.22).  
The transition policy is in response to unprecedented heating oil inventories remaining from an unusually warm winter.  Other states have similar transition periods.
The PA Petroleum Association, representing heating oil distributors, had proposed a 15 ppm ultra low sulfur standard like other neighboring states have adopted to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but that was not adopted by the Corbett Administration in 2013.
