The importance of addressing the constant drips and spills created by public refuling of automobiles is critical at reducing non point source pollution at Public Fueling Operations (PFO’s). 
For the past 15 years, the FM 186-2 Program has been environmentally addressing small spill clean ups.
When applied properly, mixed thoroughly, and wiped up appropriately, it will result in a material that can be handled as a nonhazardous solid waste*. FM 186-2 has a vapor suppression quality that helps protect employees from exposure to benzene while suppressing flammable vapors. FM 186-2 is cost effective – significantly more effective and safer than the kitty litter and hazardous waste drum method. The FM 186-2 Program complies to the Clean Water Act requirement of “Maximum Extent Practical”. Helps reduce TMDL’s for oil and grease







*Petroleum waste is a presumptive hazardous waste and the users/generators are responsible for proper waste characterization and disposal. Regulations establish that prior knowledge of the waste and the treatment process in which it was generated can be applied in determining a waste's classification. The FM 186 program is an immediate response spill treatment procedure that can be applied as part of prior knowledge in which the waste was generated. Federal and state regulations state that generators shall determine their waste classification and dispose of it correctly. Nothing herein is to be taken as approvals that all spill materials would be rendered non-hazardous.
