Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)

Project is Located:

Brooklyn, Kings County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title IV Permit Renewal and a Title V Permit Modification to include conditions recently promulgated under regulations 6NYCRR Parts 243, 244 and 245. These regulations require the facility to obtain/possess at least as many allocations of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) as they emit into the atmosphere during a specified period of time. An allocation is a unit of pollution which is limited by a budget established by the regulations. The Department developed these regulations in response to the USEPA's recent Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR.) The regulations are included in New York's State Implementation Plan (SIP) which has been approved by EPA as required by the Clean Air Act of 1990. The Plant consists of two GE LM6000 simple cycle combustion turbines which can generate a maximum 79.9 megawatts of power. The turbines are each equipped with selective catalytic reduction to control emissions of oxides of nitrogen and catalytic oxidation to control emissions of carbon monoxide.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(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.

Project is Located:

Staten Island, Richmond County


Project Description:

The applicant proposes to construct and operate a deepwater marine terminal for the landing, unloading, storage and distribution of dry bulk cement and stone aggregate imported by ocean-going freighter. A 625-foot by 44-foot-wide (or 0.63-acre), caisson-supported jetty pier with a height of 16 feet above over mean low water will be constructed to accommodate vessels. The jetty will be located in the Kill van Kull, adjacent to the navigation channel, about 100 to 175 feet from, and parallel to, shore. An approximately 700-foot-long, 21-foot-wide elevated trestle pier and an enclosed belt conveyor system will be constructed from the jetty pier to the shore. The conveyor will deliver cement to the top of a 103-foot-high, 172-foot-wide silo dome on shore capable of storing 55,000 tons of concrete. An approximately 200-foot-long extension of the conveyor system will deliver stone aggregate to a pile area to the east of the cement dome capable of holding approximately 38,000 tons of aggregate. Two other aggregate piles capable of holding 6,200 and 2,200 tons of material, respectively, will be situated on the approximately 5-acre upland site. A truck loading platform fed by two cement silos capable of holding 375 tons of dry cement each will also be constructed on-site. The site is currently occupied by Scara-mix, Inc., which operates a concrete batch plant there.
