The article offers information on the Mobile Source Air Toxics (MSAT) II regulations set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The regulation will limit the use of the carcinogenic chemical in gasoline. The regulation will come into effect on January 1, 2011. However, smaller refiners are being given longer to meet the MSAT requirement by January 1, 2015. The new regulation represents a near 50% cut in the current 1.3% benzene content of reformulated gasoline.
