ANNEX

Summary of the Draft Screening Assessment of the Four Petroleum and Refinery Gases Listed Below

The Ministers of the Environment and of Health have conducted a screening assessment of the following petroleum and refinery gases:

CAS RN (see footnot a)

Domestic Substances List name (see footnote b)

68131-75-9

Gases (petroleum), C3–C4

68477-33-8

Gases (petroleum), C3–C4, isobutane-rich

68477-85-0

Gases (petroleum), C4-rich

68527-19-5

Hydrocarbons, C1–C4, debutanizer fractionb

These substances were identified as high priorities for action during the categorization of the Domestic Substances List, as they were determined to present intermediate potential for exposure of individuals in Canada and were considered to present a high hazard to human health. They do not meet the ecological categorization criteria for persistence, bioaccumulation potential or inherent toxicity to non-human organisms. These substances were all included in the Petroleum Sector Stream Approach because they are related to the petroleum sector and are all complex mixtures.

Petroleum and refinery gases produced from petroleum facilities (i.e. refineries, upgraders or natural gas processing facilities) are a category of saturated and unsaturated light hydrocarbons, predominantly C1–C5. Some gases may also contain inorganic components, such as hydrogen, nitrogen, hydrogen sulfide and carbon monoxide. The composition of petroleum and refinery gases varies depending on the source of the crude oil, bitumen or natural gas, as well as process operating conditions and processing units used. As such, these petroleum and refinery gases are considered to be of Unknown or Variable Composition, Complex Reaction Products or Biological Materials (UVCBs). In order to predict the overall behaviour of these complex substances for purposes of assessing the potential for ecological effects, representative structures have been selected from each chemical class in the mixture. Three petroleum and refinery gases considered in this screening assessment have been identified as industry restricted (i.e. they are a subset of petroleum and refinery gases that may leave a petroleum sector facility and be transported to other industrial facilities). The petroleum and refinery gases can be consumed at the facility or transferred to other industrial facilities for use as feedstock or fuel or blended into substances leaving the site under different CAS RNs. According to information submitted under section 71 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999) and other sources of information, these petroleum and refinery gases are transported from refineries, upgraders and natural gas processing facilities to other facilities by pipelines or in pressurized containers by train. It has been recognized that, given the physical-chemical properties of these gases (e.g. high vapour pressures), releases of the petroleum and refinery gases into the atmosphere can occur.

Based on the available information, many components of these petroleum and refinery gases meet or exceed the atmospheric persistence criteria as defined in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations of CEPA 1999.

No components were identified that meet the bioaccumulation criteria in the Persistence and Bioaccumulation Regulations of CEPA 1999.

Based on the available information, it is considered unlikely that these petroleum and refinery gases are causing ecological harm in Canada. One component of petroleum and refinery gases, ethene, is being addressed in a separate comprehensive risk assessment and its potential to cause harm is not considered in this assessment. This will allow consideration of ethene releases from industrial operations generally, rather than attempting to link its release to the specific substances that are the subject of the current assessment.

There may be limited general population exposure to these petroleum and refinery gases in the vicinity of petroleum facilities. Exposure to the general population during handling (loading and unloading) and transportation of these industry-restricted petroleum and refinery gases is not expected given the nature of transportation systems and stringent regulations in place to prevent or reduce any discharge during handling and transportation processes.

Petroleum and refinery gases were identified as a high priority for action, as they were considered to present a high hazard to human health. A critical effect for categorization of human health for petroleum and refinery gases is carcinogenicity, as another jurisdiction (European Union) has identified petroleum and refinery gases containing 1,3-butadiene at concentrations greater than 0.1% by weight as carcinogens. Additionally, 1,3-butadiene has been identified by Health Canada and several international regulatory agencies as a carcinogen and was added to the List of Toxic Substances in Schedule 1 of CEPA 1999. 1,3-Butadiene was found to be a multisite carcinogen in rodents by inhalation, increasing the incidence of tumours at all concentrations tested. 1,3-Butadiene also exhibits genotoxicity in vitro and in vivo, and a plausible mode of action for the induction of tumours involves direct interaction with genetic material. Consistent with the approach used to assess the site-restricted (Stream 1) petroleum and refinery gases, 1,3-butadiene was selected as a high hazard component to characterize potential exposure to the general population as it is considered, based on available information, to be present in these petroleum and refinery gases. There may be limited aggregate general population exposure to site-restricted and industry-restricted petroleum and refinery gases in the vicinity of petroleum facilities, and margins between upper-bounding estimates of exposure to 1,3-butadiene and estimates of cancer potency previously developed for inhalation exposure to 1,3-butadiene are considered potentially inadequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases. Margins of exposure for non-cancer endpoints were considered adequate.

Based on the information available, it is proposed to conclude that the four petroleum and refinery gases included in this screening assessment are not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term harmful effect on the environment or its biological diversity or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends.

Based on the information available, it is proposed to conclude that these four petroleum and refinery gases are substances that are or may be entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

The latest information received from industry indicated that CAS RN 68527-19-5 is not being transported to other industrial facilities. Thorough evaluation of the data, considering the substance with CAS RN 68527-19-5 to be a site-restricted substance and the substances with CAS RNs 68131-75-9, 68477-33-8 and 68477-85-0 to be industry-restricted substances, revealed no scientific impact on the proposed conclusions for either the site-restricted or industry-restricted petroleum and refinery gases.

Proposed conclusion

Based on the information available, it is proposed to conclude that these four petroleum and refinery gases listed under CAS RNs 68131-75-9, 68477-33-8, 68477-85-0 and 68527-19-5 meet one or more of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA 1999.

The draft Screening Assessment for these substances is available on the Government of Canada’s Chemical Substances Web site (www.chemicalsubstances.gc.ca).

The Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number (CAS RN) is the property of the American Chemical Society, and any use or redistribution, except as required in supporting regulatory requirements and/or for reports to the Government when the information and the reports are required by law or administrative policy, is not permitted without the prior, written permission of the American Chemical Society.

Footnote b
The latest information received indicated that there is no longer any evidence that CAS RN 68527-19-5 is being transported to other industrial facilities. This correction to the data reported in 2009 therefore defines this substance as a Stream 1, site-restricted petroleum and refinery gas.
