The landfill has a landfill gas (LFG) collection system which conveys collected LFG primarily to a separately owned and permitted landfill gas utilization facility. An enclosed flare is maintained on-site for contingencies. Modern is also permitted to burn a small quantity of clean LFG for comfort heat in heaters in the maintenance garage. The draft permit reflects the existing annual waste placement rate of 815,000 tons per year. Facility volatile organic compounds (VOC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions are capped below 50 tons per year and 100 tons per year, respectively, the applicability threshold of New Source Review (NSR) under 6NYCRR Part 231-2. Facility carbon monoxide (CO) emissions are capped below 250 tons per year the applicability threshold of Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) under 40CFR52.21, Subpart A.
