Environmental guidelines for petroleum distribution installations. Inst. Petrol. IP Guidelines publ'd March 1996, Inst. Petrol, London, illus., figs., 54 pages (ISBN 0--85293--166--2).

These guidelines provide a basic code of practice covering distribution facilities with reference to their environmental impact. Their scope has been limited initially, to the design and operation of liquid petroleum fuels distribution facilities, however, it is hoped to extend them in future to retailing operations. Currently they can be used as a basis for managing the environmental impact of refinery off-sites, LPG, bitumen, aviation, authorized distributors and lubricant operations. Operation and design, and management of contaminated sites are included. Details are appended of UK legislation and quality assurance and quality control.
