The action involves the Cogeneration Facility Upgrade and Expansion Project at New York University (NYU).

The congeneration facility currently operates under an existing New York State Department of Environmental Conservation ("NYSDEC") Article 19 Title V Facility Permit ( Permit #2-6205-00246/00005), The proposed project would result in a net reduction in the facility emissions (Of Nitrogen Oxides ["NOx"], Sulfur Dioxide ["SO2"], Carbon Monoxide ["CO"] and Particle Matter with a diameter less than or equal to 10 microns [PM 10]), compared with existing equipment. The proposed upgrade and expansion would allow NYU to provide more extensive service and reliable power to its campus. The project is located in New York University, Manhattan, NY.
