Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Willing, Allegany County

Project Description:

The Department has made a determination to approve the Title V permit renewal request for the National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation Beech Hill Facility and has prepared a draft permit. The facility is a natural gas storage facility consisting of three natural gas fired stationary reciprocating internal combustion compressor engines, two rated at 2750 horse power (HP) and one rated at 2850 HP. There is also one 200 HP emergency generator which is subject to 40CFR63 Subpart ZZZZ, and two natural gas dehydration units. Exempt equipment includes a boiler, heaters, parts washers and six tanks. The dehydration units use a regenerative glycol system to remove water that accumulates in the natural gas during underground storage at the facility. The units are subject to 6NYCRR Part 212 which requires process emissions to meet control standards. The compressor engines are subject to the opacity limitations of 6NYCRR Part 227-1.3(a). The nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission limit for lean burn spark ignited natural gas fired stationary internal combustion engines is 1.5 grams per brake horsepower-hour per 6 NYCRR Part 227-2.4(f)(1). Source performance testing performed in 2009 has confirmed compliance with the limit.

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.

Applicant:

Safety-Kleen Systems Inc
2600 N Central Expwy Ste 400
Richardson, TX 75080

Facility:

Safety-Kleen Corp - Lackawanna Center
41 N Gates Ave
Lackawanna, NY 14218

Application ID:

9-1409-00021/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act

Project is Located:

Lackawanna, Erie County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) has reviewed the hazardous waste management permit renewal application for Safety-Kleen's Lackawanna Service Center and made a tentative determination to renew the 6NYCRR Part 373 Permit to continue its authorization to operate the hazardous waste storage facility. A Draft Permit has been prepared pursuant to the regulations in 6NYCRR Part 373‑2 (Final Status Standards for Owners and Operators of Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities) and all other applicable hazardous waste management laws and regulations. Safety Kleen Systems, Inc. is an international service oriented company whose customers are primarily engaged in automotive repair, industrial maintenance, manufacturing, photoprocessing 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 December 17, 2007. The permit expires on December 16, 2012. Safety-Kleen submitted the renewal application as required in 6 NYCRR 373‑1.8 on May 15, 2012. Under the provisions of State Administrative Procedures Act Section 401(2), the current permit is extended until the department makes a final decision on the renewal application submitted by Safety-Kleen. The Lackawanna Service Center manages a variety of regulated and non‑regulated waste. A vast majority of this waste is handled on a transfer basis in accordance with applicable United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and New York State regulations. Hydrocarbon ‑ and aqueous ‑ based parts washer solvents are managed for storage at the facility. These materials are bulked and stored in a permitted 15,000‑gallon storage tank or, if required, in two permitted container storage areas prior to bulking in the storage tank. Wastes managed by the Lackawanna facility are transported from the Service Center to one of Safety‑Kleen's several Recycle/Process Centers or to a contract reclaimer and, in many instances, the recovered materials are returned to customers as usable product. A unique feature of Safety‑Kleen's solvent service (i.e., hydrocarbon‑ and aqueous‑ based parts washer solvents) is that Safety‑Kleen provides the customer with the solvents and also manages the spent solvents. This "closed‑loop" system allows Safety‑Kleen to maintain control of the solvents except while they are in use at the customer's place of business. The Lackawanna facility also provides assistance to waste generators for the proper transport and management of a variety of spent automotive and industrial materials. The majority of this facility's customers generate less than 1000 kg (2200 lbs.) per month of hazardous waste. All containerized ignitable wastes at the facility are stored 50 feet from the facility property line. Based upon available information, the Department has made an assessment of the need for corrective action and has made a tentative determination that there has been no release of hazardous wastes or hazardous constituents to the environment that would institute corrective action. A fact sheet providing additional information on the facility and its operation is available at the address of the contact person listed below. A copy of the draft permit is also available for review at the Lackawanna Public Library located at 560 Ridge Road, Lackawanna, NY 14218.
