Application ID:

3-3330-00184/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Goshen, Orange County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Title V Permit Renewal 1 pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve an application for the Al Turi Landfill & LFGTE facility located in Goshen, Orange County, New York.

The Al Turi Landfill & LFGTE (the "facility") consists of a combined municipal solid waste landfill (the "landfill"), which is owned and operated by Al Turi Landfill, Inc. ("Al Turi") and an adjacent landfill gas to energy plant (the "LFGTE Plant"), which is owned and operated by Ameresco LFG-1, Inc. ("Ameresco").

The combined Al Turi Landfill & LFGTE Facility includes a total of five emission units. The subject of this Title V Permit Renewal 1 relates to the landfill proper which defines two of the five facility emission units.

1-LFGAS - Landfill mass and active gas collection system

2-LEACH - Two leachate storage lagoons.

The existing landfill proper is at capacity and closed pursuant to Solid Waste Management regulation 6NYCRR Part 360. The primary focus of this Title V Permit Renewal 1 is to require the continued operation of the existing gas collection system and does not alter the landfill's status as closed.

Title V Permit Renewal 1 No. 3-3330-00184/00002, issued to Ameresco, is a separate permit which primarily relates to the landfill gas to energy plant and identifies the remaining three emission units including the combustion sources and treatment system that provide landfill gas emissions control pursuant to 6NYCRR Part 208. Title V Permit Renewal 1 No. 3-3330-00184/00002 was issued August 7, 2006.

The combined facility is subject to the requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 208. Requirements identified within this Title V Permit Renewal 1 include but are not limited to: monthly monitoring at each well head for pressure, oxygen and temperature, and annual methane surface monitoring around the perimeter of the collection area and along a pattern which traverses the landfill.

The facility's combined emissions for carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen exceed major source pollutant thresholds listed in 6 NYCRR Subpart 201-2. The landfill's documented waste placement exceeds 2.5 million megagrams, accepted waste after 1987 and has a nonmethane organic compound emission rate of greater than 50 megagrams per year. Therefore, the facility is subject to the provisions of Title V.

The Standard Industrial Classification representative of this source is 4953 - Refuse Systems.

By acceptance of this permit, AL Turi Landfill, Inc. agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit. The Department has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this application for the Applicant's facility located

By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Wallkill, Orange County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Title V Permit Renewal 1 pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve an application for the Revere Smelting & Refining Corporation (Revere) located in the Town of Wallkill, Orange County, New York.

Revere Smelting & Refining Corporation (Revere) operates a secondary lead smelter. Incoming raw materials consists primarily of used lead-acid batteries. The majority of these batteries are automotive type, although various types of industrial and specialty type lead-acid batteries are also received. Other types of lead-bearing materials amenable to process operations include materials received from lead-acid battery manufacturing plants and scrap metal.

Lead-acid batteries are fed into the battery wrecker where they are mechanically crushed, shredded and hammered for sizing. Solid components of the battery are separated by a sink/float system. Battery electrolyte is collected, and transferred to the scrubber metals co-precipitation process for pH adjustment. The battery case material is washed and pneumatically transferred into trailers for shipment to plastic recyclers.

The metal portion of the battery ("Battery Wrecker Material") is fed to a hopper and then metered to a natural gas fired rotary dryer which serves to reduce the moisture in the charge material. The dried charge material is continuously fed to the reverberatory furnace which is fired by natural gas, oxygen-enriched burners. Antimony, arsenic, tin, calcium, aluminum, and other alloying elements in the metal are oxidized to the slag while lead is refined to produce a low impurity lead metal. The lead metal is tapped either into molds or directly into refining kettles which are designed to convert the metal produced by the furnace into ingots of specific contents required by customer specifications.

The main source of emissions are attributable to lead processing activities which include:

  • Kiln drying of lead containing material;
  • Smelting of dried lead containing material;
  • Slag Casting;
  • Refining Kettles; and
  • Material Handling & Storage.

The lead processing areas are kept under negative pressure to ensure that no fugitive lead emissions are released from the facility. All point sources are controlled by baghouse collectors. A scrubber is employed to remove sulfur dioxide from the reverberatory furnace.

Revere also operates a crystallizer process which converts liquor from the onsite sulfur dioxide wet scrubber and neutralized battery electrolyte into sodium sulfate crystals which are sold on the open market.

Two diesel generators are used to provide supplemental power when requested by the utility company, and during power outages. The operation of these units is limited to 500 hours per year.

Revere is subject to Title V permitting since emissions of sulfur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen exceed major stationary source thresholds defined by 6NYCRR 201.

The Standard Industrial Classification representative of this facility is 3341 - Secondary Nonferrous Metals.

Revere is subject to numerous monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements defined under 40 CFR 63-A, 40 CFR 63-X, 40 CFR 60-L, 6 NYCRR 201, 6 NYCRR 212, 6 NYCRR 225 and 6 NYCRR 227.

By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below. It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files. The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within 2 business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/32249.html.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory.
