Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Brookhaven, Suffolk County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit, made a tentative determination to renew the permit for 5 more years, and has modified the permit to include conditions recently promulgated under regulations 6 NYCRR Parts 243, 244, and 245. These regulations require facilities 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 United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA'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 Gas Turbine plant is located within the Holtsville GT & LNG facility and consists of ten (10) combustion turbine generators, each of which contains two engines per generator, for a total of 20 separate emission points and emission units. Although fuel for the combustion turbines is not stored on site, there are numerous other tanks used for storing compressed gases, lubrication and/or electrical cable oils at this facility.

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 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Brookhaven, Suffolk County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and made a tentative determination to issue a separate Title V permit for the existing liquified natural gas (LNG) plant which is part of the Holtsville GT & LNG facility. The LNG portion had previously been permitted under a single Title V permit for the whole facility, and no changes to existing operation are proposed in this draft permit. The LNG plant produces and stores methane (the primary component of natural gas) as a cryogenic liquid, at atmospheric pressure. This plant contains three (3) LNG vaporizers used to regassify liquified methane for reintroduction into the natural gas transmission distribution system, an emergency fire pump, and a flare in continuous operation to control the release of flammable gases.

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.
