The MTBE Team operated throughout 2002 with minimal funding. During this first year of a multiyear program addressing key technical aspects of removing MTBE, tert-butyl alcohol (TBA), and other ether- and alcohol-based fuel oxygenates from groundwater, the team began work on a draft technology overview document that will be ready for broad distribution during 2004. The team has begun preparing technical content for classroom and Internet-based training, tentatively scheduled for 2005.
Describes the properties, applications, and benefits of fuel oxygenates, as well as the health and environmental issues associated with MTBE use; explains how to prevent contamination by gasoline containing MTBE; describes emergency response and remediation techniques in the event of an accidental release; and lists selected websites containing useful information on MTBE, gasoline, and related subjects.
The American Petroleum Institute (API) conducts research on the behavior and fate of petroleum in soil and groundwater, and ways to clean up underground petroleum releases. Much of APIļæ½s research effort focuses on the breakdown of petroleum by naturally-occurring microscopic organisms and other processes, and ways to enhance these processes.
