EN 13109:2010 (E) 4 Introduction This European Standard specifies methods for the safe disposal of LPG tanks and drums. This European Standard calls for the use of substances and procedures that may be injurious to health and/or the environment if adequate precautions are not taken. It refers only to technical suitability and does not absolve the user from legal obligations relating to health, safety and environmental protection at any stage. Protection of the environment is a key political issue in Europe and elsewhere. Protection of the environment is taken in a very broad sense. The standard takes into consideration the total lifecycle aspects of the activities involved in complying with the standard. These activities include all phases such as scrapping, recycling of materials, etc. It has been assumed in the drafting of this European Standard that execution of its provisions is entrusted to appropriately qualified and experienced people.

EN 13109:2010 (E) 5 1 Scope This European Standard specifies methods for the safe gas freeing and disposal of LPG tanks and drums above 150-litre water capacity. This European Standard is applicable to the following:  tanks manufactured in accordance with EN 12542;  drums manufactured in accordance with EN 14893, and  LPG tanks and drums manufactured in accordance with any other pressure vessel code. 2 Normative references Not applicable. 3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply. 3.1 liquefied petroleum gas LPG mixture of predominantly butane or propane with traces of other hydrocarbon gases classified in accordance with UN number 1965, hydrocarbon gases mixture, liquefied, NOS or UN number 1075, petroleum gases, liquefied NOTE In some countries, UN numbers 1011 and 1978 may also be designated LPG. 3.2 gas free with an LPG concentration in air less than 20 % of the lower explosive limit 3.3 disposal gas freeing and discarding LPG tanks and drums either in the form of scrap metal or for use in non-pressure applications 3.4 competent person person who, by qualification, training, experience and resources, is able to make objective judgements related to the safe disposal of LPG tanks and drums 3.5 hydrate hydrocarbon and water compound which forms under reduced temperature and pressure, e.g. venting, and in appearance resemble snow or ice, and can plug equipment 4 Gas freeing of tanks and drums 4.1 Residual liquid LPG shall be safely removed from a tank or drum by a competent person. SIST EN 13109:2011

EN 13109:2010 (E) 6 4.2 LPG shall be either:  returned to an in-service LPG tank, or  flared through a purpose designed flare stack fitted with a flame arrestor, or  vented through a purpose designed high level vent, in a controlled manner, that ensures that the vented gas is diluted to less than 20 % of the lower explosive limit before it reaches ground level or any potential source of ignition (see Annex B), or  a combination of any of these options. For safety and environmental protection reasons the first option is preferable. 4.3 Tanks and drums shall be made gas free by a method chosen and controlled by a competent person. NOTE 1 Annex A gives examples of gas freeing methods. NOTE 2 The method of gas freeing should be selected so that it is technically effective and the environmental impact reduced to a minimum. After selecting the appropriate method, all suitable measures should be implemented in order to minimise the loss of energy, the emissions to air, raw
