ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 12/10/2008

Monroe County

Applicant:

Eastman Kodak Co
343 State St
Rochester, NY 14650

Facility:

Kodak Park Division
1669 Lake Ave
Rochester, NY 14650

Application ID:

8-2614-00205/01827

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Rochester, Monroe County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application for renewal and modification of the Title V Facility Permit for the Eastman Kodak Co - Kodak Park boilers, which generate steam and electricity to support manufacturing activities within Kodak Park. The Kodak Park boilers are operated by SUEZ-Duke Energy Generation Services of Rochester (SDEGS) under a Title V Permit which is separate from the Title V Permit for the remainder of the Kodak Park facility.

The modification involves replacement of the Boiler 42 burners, which have been in service since startup in 1967. Kodak proposes to replace the old burners with a newer design of the same heat capacity, to improve combustion and boiler reliability, shifting more steam and electricity demand to Boiler 42 from other boilers. The new burners will also decrease the amount of natural gas needed for the oxides of nitrogen (NOX) control reburn system, allowing a potential incremental increase in coal use to achieve the same heat input. Potential emission increases from the Boiler 42 modification are significant for NOX, sulfur dioxide (SO2), particulate matter smaller than 10 microns (PM10), particulate matter smaller than 2.5 microns (PM2.5), and sulfuric acid (H2SO4), when compared to the applicability thresholds in 40 CFR 52.21 Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD). However, as part of the application, Kodak has submitted an analysis of net Kodak Park facility emission changes, including potential increases from the Boiler 42 modification, and decreases from shutdowns of Boilers 13, 14, 15, and 16, in the contemporaneous 5 year period. The netting analysis demonstrates that facility-wide net emissions will decrease, are thereby avoid the PSD significant increase applicability thresholds of 40 tons per year of NOX, 40 tons per year of SO2, 15 tons per year of PM10, 10 tons per year of PM-2.5, and 7 tons per year of sulfuric acid (H2SO4).

In response, the Department has generated a Draft Title V Facility Permit and has made a tentative determination to renew the current Permit, and authorize the Boiler 42 burner replacements. The Draft Permit reflects the removal of Boilers 13, 14, 15, and 16, and includes emission limits on Boiler 42 which restrict potential facility-wide emission increases to below the PSD thresholds indicated above. To verify compliance, operators must maintain monthly logs of fuel use and calculate monthly and rolling 12-month emission totals of NOX, SO2, PM10, PM-2.5, and H2SO4 from Boiler 42 to show that they remain at or below emissions projected in the netting analysis. These records must be maintained for a minimum of five years.

In addition, the Draft Title V Facility Permit addresses 40 CFR 64 Compliance Assurance Monitoring (CAM) requirements for particulate emissions from Boilers 41 and 44, triggered by the renewal of the Title V Permit. CAM requirements for Boilers 41 and 44 will be similar to those for Boilers 42 and 43 which were already required due to earlier air intake modifications authorized in January 2007. The draft permit conditions include a schedule for particulate emissions testing to establish a correlation with opacity. Opacity will be monitored continuously as a surrogate parameter for monitoring compliance with Part 227 particulate limits.

The Environmental Protection Agency is responsible for implementing the PSD program in New York State. Questions regarding PSD applicability should be directed to: Mr. Steven C. Riva, Air Programs Branch, Division of Environmental Planning and Protection, U.S.E.P.A. Region 2, 290 Broadway - 25th Floor, New York, NY 10007-1866, (212) 637-4074 or at Riva.Steven@epamail.epa.gov.

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.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Ontario, Wayne County


Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) is pursuing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) and renewal to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit (NY 000 0493, pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS). The Constellation Energy electric steam generation plant discharges non-contact cooling water; boiler blowdown; service water from various tanks, systems, and pumps; and stormwater. The proposed changes to the permit are as follows: For outfall 001, water quality based effluent limits for iron and copper; action levels for ammonia, 2,2-dibromo-3-nitrilopropionamide and dibromoacetonitrile; whole effluent toxicity testing to evaluate synergistic effects, and an effluent limit for total residual oxidant are proposed. For other outfalls, pH range, ammonia monitoring, boron short-term high intensity monitoring and revised iron limits are proposed. Monitoring for Outfall 003 for stormwater is proposed to represent several storm water outfalls. Monitoring and limits are proposed for Outfall 005 which discharges stormwater and emergency overflows from transformer yard secondary containment. Stream flow monitoring of Deer Creek is proposed to be added to the Compliance Schedule to support Outfall 005 evaluation. Biological Monitoring requirements are updated and Schedules of Compliance are revised. Water treatment chemicals are approved and several action levels and monitoring requirements are added accordingly. The modification also includes several other minor updates such as contacts. The Best Technology Available Determination will be made in the future and public noticed at that time. Substantive comments on the permit or requests for hearing or both must be submitted in writing to the contact person. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.
