Article 19 Air State Facility
Article 25 Tidal Wetlands

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft ASF permit and has made a tentative determination to issue the following permits: Air State Facility, Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters, Tidal Wetlands and Water Quality Certification. The applicant proposes to construct a drum mix hot mix asphalt plant that will produce hot mix asphalt for loval paving projects. The aggregate will be fed into the feed hopper of a diesel powered powerscreen Chieftain 800 screening plant and screened into three fractions. Fine and sized material will be used directly -- over will be sent to an electrically driven crusher and rescreened. Aggregate produced will then be metered into the rotary dryer for heating to 300 degrees F. The dryer is fired with #2 fuel oil at 75 mmbtu/hr. The liquid petroleum additives are sprayed onto the material as it leaves the dryer. The finished product is conveyed to the insulated storage silo from which it will be discharged into dump trucks. Gases from the dryer will be sent to the baghouse where they will be cooled by water spray to 160 degrees F and then filtered through disposable fiberglass micron size particulate filters. The generator will be used to power the crusher and provide other plant electrical loads. The screener has its own diesel drive. The plant will produce from 75,000 to 150,000 tons of asphalt per year. The facility NOx emissions are capped at 24.9 tons per year. The facility is subject to the provisions of State Facility specified under 6 NYCRR Part 201-7.2. In addition, the applicant proposes to install a stormwater discharge outfall for the facility; the existing bulkhead will only be disturbed for protrusion of the pipe at the final stage of construction; the bulkhead will be reconstructed with concrete and sealed around the pipe.
