Spill Prevention


Does the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Rule (40 CFR part 112) Apply to You?

According to the EPA’s SPCC rule, if your location has an aggregate (total) above ground storage capacity greater than 1,320 gallons, you fall under this regulation. The inspectors consider all oil and fuel in containers with storage capacity of 55 gallons or more when they are assessing your facility.  If you have 1,320 gallons or more of total storage capacity, then you are required to provide a secondary means of containment. 

All of Onken’s double wall containers and tanks meet this secondary containment requirement, by providing double wall storage with a secondary capacity of 110% of the primary tank. If you find yourself in need of double wall containment for your used automotive oil, new automotive oil or cooking oil, we can provide you with a tank or bin to meet the SPCC requirements.
