ENB Region 4 Completed Applications 09/22/2010

Albany County

Applicant:

Safety-Kleen Systems Inc
Bldg 2 Ste 100
5360 Legacy Dr
Plano, TX 75024

Facility:

Safety-Kleen Cohoes Service Center
17 Green Mountain Dr
Cohoes, NY 12047 -4807

Application ID:

4-0126-00167/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act

Project is Located:

Colonie, Albany County


Project Description:

Safety-Kleen Systems, Inc., formerly Safety-Kleen Corporation, is a solvent distributor and recycler (reclaimer). Its customers are primarily engaged in automotive repair, industrial maintenance and dry cleaning. The company offers spent solvent collection and reclamation. The facility operates under the state 6 NYCRR Part 373 hazardous waste management permit issued on January 7, 2005. The permit was due to expire on January 7, 2010, but Safety-Kleen applied for permit renewal on June 16, 2009, so the existing permit is extended pursuant to the State Administrative Procedures Act (SAPA), Section 401(2), until the Department makes a determination on the renewal application.

The Safety-Kleen Cohoes facility is located in a business/industrial park and is zoned for commercial use. The majority of this facility's customers generate less than 1,000 kg (2,200 lbs.) per month of hazardous waste. Wastes managed by Safety-Kleen are transported in its transport vehicles to one of Safety-Kleen's Recycle/Process Centers or to contract reclaimers located outside New York State. The recovered solvents are returned to customers as usable product.

Safety-Kleen also stores hazardous wastes for less than 10 days incidental to transportation. This incidental storage is exempt from the hazardous waste regulations and regulated under the Code of Federal Regulations Title 49 pertaining to Hazardous Materials Transportation. However, such storage is limited to 10 days or less. These 10-day storage areas at the facility are designated as Area South and Area North.

The recyclable waste solvents generated by the Parts Washer Services, which is the primary business of the facility, are collected by Safety-Kleen's own transport vehicles and stored in the permitted tank prior to transportation to the Recycle centers in tanker trucks. Containerized spent parts washer solvent routed to the facility will remain on the transport vehicles for a limited time prior to it being transferred into the bulk storage 12,000 gallon tank through the fully enclosed Return and Fill station or transferred to containers (up to 2,400 gallons) in two permitted storage areas located at the Return and Fill Station building. Safety-Kleen stores in the permitted storage tank three types of spent cleaning solvents: ignitable solvents, water-based solvents and solvents with a high flash point which are not classified as ignitable under the Department regulations. All these wastes derived from these commingled solvents are managed as hazardous wastes. All ignitable wastes at the facility will be stored 50 feet from the facility property line.

After review of the permit renewal application, the Department has found it to be complete. Based upon the complete application, the Department has made a tentative determination to renew the 6NYCRR Part 373 Permit for the facility for the continued storage of hazardous waste and has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to the regulations in 6NYCRR Part 373-2 (Final Status Standards for Owners and Operators of Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities) as well as other applicable hazardous waste management laws and regulations.

Copies of the application, Fact Sheet, and Draft Permit are available for public review during normal business hours at the address of the contact person listed below or at New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Solid and Hazardous Materials, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233, contact person: James Lansing, (518) 402-8610.

Application ID:

4-4215-00027/00007

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Schenectady, Schenectady County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a new Air State Facility Permit for the construction and operation of a new methane burning engine/generator and a new backup flare for the application that was received for the Schenectady Waste Water Treatment Plant, at 300 Anthony Street, Schenectady, New York. The application is for continued operation under a new Air State Facility permit and construction of a proposed co-gen facility.

The Schenectady sewage treatment plant treats wastewater collected from the city of Schenectady. The facility currently operates a composting facility with emission controls and an anaerobic digester which utilizes methane gas in an on-site boiler. The new Air State Facility permit will allow construction and installation of a new methane burning engine/generator and a new backup flare. The generator is certified to allowable emission standards and the flare is to be used while engine is not operational. The permit will also allow the facility to use the existing emergency generator to supplement the grid in times of peak demand. Monitoring and work practices related to the control devices and processes are required by this permit.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Air State Facility 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 below.

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 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 exists. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department's web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/regs/4483.html
If comments are received which raise significant issues or provide additional relevant information, the Department may modify the draft Air State Facility Permit.
