The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) has reviewed an application dated July 21, 2010, for Emission Reduction Credits (ERCs) for Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Particulate Matter (PM2.5). The Department has reviewed the ERC application and has agreed to approve the ERCs as follows: ERCs approved (tons): NOx 1,554.0, VOCs 48.60, PM 2.5 93.60. The quantity of approved VOC and PM 2.5 is slightly less than requested to reflect the quantities reported in the unit's emission inventories for 2007 and 2008. This approval of credits does not affect the functioning of the facility's other plant (2-6301-00084/00015) which has its own Title V Air Permit.
The application and supporting documentation are available for review at the Department's Region 2 office.
