QCL Solution for Containment of Harmful Liquids

Performance Petroleum performs perfectly.

Performance Petroleum has developed a solution for construction businesses that require compliant containment equipment that prevents harm to the environment. The quick containment liner (QCL) was designed to comply with all regulations as well as containment of petroleum products by preventing them from permeating into the environment.

Jon Mayer, president of Performance Petroleum, with more than 30 years in the fuel business and developer of the QCL said “. . .during our RDS process, a number of our customers needed to comply with the new regulation “Duty to Prevent” ruling (MN Statutes 115E.02).

We developed the product to meet the new regulations set forth by various agencies. The Duty To Prevent ruling requires companies to have liners placed under equipment to prevent permeation of harmful liquids into the earth. We’ve observed countless job sites where there is total ignorance of this type of compliant equipment; the QCL is not like the kiddie pool from the toy store or the poly roll-out sheets that are used pervasively. Our product is an affordable, compliant and portable one where we’ve received 100 percent positive feedback.

It can be used on a temporary or permanent basis and is interlockable. Customers like the QCL and it works in tandem with other equipment on job sites. Our product has been very well received by government agencies and I believe it is ready to be distributed to a larger customer base.”

The QCL conforms to the MPCA and EPA regulations and also of upcoming regulations in the construction arena, including those involving Storm Water (40 CFR 141.722), Best Management Practices (BMPs) and Land Use Control. The QCL was created to work with and complements the Trans Cube, another portable product. The design ensures quick and easy delivery, setup and application, according to the manufacturer. The system can be used at construction, industrial and excavating sites, marinas, golf courses, etc. — anywhere where protection is needed for the environment.
