Air Plan Approval; Missouri; Removal of Kansas City, Missouri Reid Vapor Pressure Requirement
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing approval of revision to the Missouri State Implementation Plan (SIP), submitted by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MoDNR) on September 15, 2020. The proposed revision removes the Kansas City, Missouri low Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) requirement which required gasoline sold in the Kansas City, Missouri area to have a seven pounds per square inch Reid Vapor Pressure from June 1 to September 15. The majority of the state is subject to the Clean Air Act (CAA) nine pounds per square inch Reid Vapor Pressure from June 1 to September 15. If approved the Kansas City, Missouri area would be subject to the Clean Air Act Reid Vapor Pressure requirement. In addition, EPA anticipates issuing a separate proposal for the Kansas side of the Kansas City metro area.
