ENB Region 7 Completed Applications 08/29/2007

Broome County

Applicant:

Broome Energy Resources LLC
60 East St (REAR)
PO Box 150
Ware, MA 01082 -0150

Facility:

Broome County Lfg Recovery Facility
Knapp Rd
Nanticoke, NY 13905

Application ID:

7-0399-00011/00003

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Nanticoke, Broome County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application. The Department has prepared a draft permit modification pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and made a tentative decision to approve an application for an Air State Facility Permit for Broome Energy Resources LLC's Landfill Gas Recovery Facility located at the Broome County Landfill on Knapp Road in the Town of Nanticoke. The purpose of the permit modification is to permit the operation of three (3) engine generator sets and a candle flare at the landfill gas recovery facility. The engines/generators burn collected landfill gas to produce electricity for sale.

Broome Energy's Broome County facility includes a landfill gas (LFG) collection system and a LGF-to-energy facility. The LFG collection system is installed in Sections I, II and III of Broome County's landfill. The LFG-to-energy facility located adjacent to Section I includes two (2) Caterpillar 399 SITA engines/generators that generate 1,300 kilowatts of energy (total), two (2) Caterpillar 3516 engines/generators that generate 1600 kilowatts (total) and one (1) Caterpillar 398 SITA engine/generator that generates 500 kilowatts of energy for a total facility generation capacity at the facility of 3,400 kilowatts. The system is designed such that the candle flare burns excess LFG in the event of engine failure or maintenance, and will be utilized when LFG in excess of the available capacity of the engines must be combusted.

The draft permit includes a facility-wide federally enforceable emissions cap to keep total facility emissions of oxides of nitrogen below the major source threshold for oxides of nitrogen of 100 tons per year. Nitrogen oxide emissions and facility operating parameters (such as landfill gas flow rates) are required to be determined on a monthly basis and reported to the Department in the facility's annual capping certification report.

Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicated.
