Application ID:

7-3132-00052/00020

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Geddes, Onondaga County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the New York State Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the federal Clean Air Act and made a tentative decision to renew and modify the Title V permit for Syracuse Energy Corporation's facility at 56 Industrial Drive, Geddes, NY. The permit will be modified to include conditions to implement 6 NYCRR 242 - 246.

The Syracuse Energy Corporation facility consists of five B&W pulverized coal-fired boilers, each with a maximum rated heat input of 275 mmBtu/hr. Flue gas emissions from the five boilers are combined and pass through a lime spray dry adsorber and fabric filter before being discharges to the atmosphere through a single stack. The spray dry adsorber was installed in 2006. The boilers are subject to particulate, SO2 and NOx emission limits, the DEC's Clean Air Interstate Rules, the DEC's mercury reduction rule and the DEC's CO2 budget trading program.

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. A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment. DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists. If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments. The applicant and all persons who have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing. Comments and requests for a legislative public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.

An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination. An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exist. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.
