ENB Region 3 Completed Applications 05/05/2010

Dutchess County

Applicant:

Tilcon New York Inc
162 Old Mill Rd
West Nyack, NY 10994

Facility:

Tilcon-Poughkeepsie Asphalt Plant
295 Sheafe Rd
Wappingers Falls, NY 12590

Application ID:

3-1346-00219/00007

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Modified Draft Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and made a tentative determination to issue a modification to the State Facility Permit for the operation of The Tilcon - Poughkeepsie asphalt plant, located in the Town of Poughkeepsie (Dutchess County). Modification 1 - This modification is to remove the drum mix asphalt plant (emissions unit U-00002 with associated emissions points, processes, and sources/controls) and relocation of some equipment on the site. In addition, various existing conditions have been revised for further clarity.

The facility consists of a hot mix asphalt batch plant. Ancillary equipment supporting the operation include: liquid asphalt and petroleum storage tanks, aggregate storage facilities, hot asphalt storage silos, tank heaters, and load out equipment. Emission unit U-00001 identifies the 360 ton per hour hot mix asphalt batch plant. Hot mix asphalt is produced by combining liquid asphalt cement, various sizes of aggregate and reclaimed asphalt pavement (rap). The liquid asphalt cement is stored in heated above ground tanks. Aggregate and rap are stored in various stockpiles on site. The aggregate is heated in a rotary dryer and then blended with the other materials in a mixing tower to produce hot mix asphalt. The rotary dryer is vented to a baghouse filter. The hot mix is either transferred to storage silos or batch loaded directly into trucks and driven off site. Various fuels used for the process include: No. 2 or No. 4 distillate fuel oil, No. 6 residual fuel oil, and specification waste fuel A. There are no natural gas combustion capabilities at this time onsite, but future modifications may include this addition. Tilcon-Poughkeepsie utilizes online power to operate. There are no generators onsite.

The facility is limiting annual asphalt production to maximum 470,000 tons per year, thereby capping emissions below major stationary source thresholds as defined by 6 NYCRR part 201. Applicable requirements include: annual compliance certification reporting under 6 NYCRR part 201-7.2, sulfur in fuel limit under 6 NYCRR Subpart 225-1, particulate emissions standards and opacity evaluation under 40 CFR Subpart I and 6 NYCRR Subpart 227, analytical sampling and recordkeeping requirements for waste fuel under 6 NYCRR part 225-2, and operational requirement for control devices under 6 NYCRR part 212.11.

By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.
