Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County


Project Description:

The Dutchess County Recovery Facility located in Poughkeepsie, New York is a Class 1 Small Municipal Waste Combustor facility. The facility has two O'Connor Rotary mass burn waterwall type combustors each capable of combusting 228 tons per day of municipal solid waste (MSW), recovering energy as steam in the two boilers, which have the capability to produce 115,800 lb/hour of steam at 625 psig and 700 degree Fahrenheit. The steam is used to drive a 9.2 MW turbine generator. Excess electricity is sold to Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation. The primary fuel combusted is MSW. During startup and shutdown, natural gas is fired to maintain minimum flue gas temperature. In addition, natural gas may also be used during periods of upset conditions. The primary SIC is 4953.

Air pollution control equipment at the facility includes a spray dry absorber for acid gas control, fabric filters for particulate removal, and a carbon injection system for mercury and total dioxin control. The permittee may elect to not operate the carbon injection system(s) if annual stack test results demonstrate compliance with Subpart BBBB mercury and total dioxin emission limits without the operation of the carbon injection system(s). An overfire air system has been installed for both units for carbon monoxide control. The facility has a Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMs).

The facility is subjected to 40 CFR 60 Subpart BBBB, Emissions Guidelines for Small Municipal Waste Combustors, and 6 NYCRR Part 219, Incinerators.

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. 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.
