Applicant:

Application ID:

1-2820-01727/00028

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Hempstead, Nassau County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal of the air Title V permit for the Hempstead Resource Recovery Facility. The Hempstead Resource Recovery Facility is a 975,000 ton per year Energy from Waste facility that consists of 3 emission points, each of which is a separate flue that discharges at the top of a 381.5 ft stack. Each emission point is fed from an independent combustor that processes municipal solid waste, including residential, non-hazardous commercial, and governmental and/or institutional wastes, and other non-hazardous industrial waste streams approved by NYSDEC on a case by case basis. These units may also combust unadulterated wood as auxiliary fuel, to increase the BTU content of the waste.

The waste is burned on a series of roller grates and heat from combustion is recovered in a 4 pass water wall boiler. After heat recovery, the flue gas enters an acid gas scrubber and then a fabric filter baghouse before finally exiting the stack. Each combustion train is also equipped with urea-based Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction NOx control equipment.

The facility is authorized to use leachate in the spray dry absorbers (SDA) in accordance with approved BUD No. 958-1-30 dated September 23, 2009, which was issued by the NYSDEC Division of Solid and Hazardous Materials.

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.
