Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located:
Queens, Queens County
The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Permit Renewal for a facility that repairs and paints transformers, performs autobody repairs on company vehicles and stores liquefied natural gas. A combustion turbine, rated at 82 MMBtu/hr, is used to liquefy natural gas for storage and combusts only natural gas. Liquefied natural gas is controlled with a flare and a ground combustor rated at 250 MMBtu/hr. There are five vaporizers each with four burners (each burner rated at 10.5 MMBtu/hr) for converting liquefied natural gas to gaseous natural gas. The transformer shop operates four paint booths, 18 welding bays, one large grit blaster and two small grit blasters. The transportation department operates a paint booth for auto painting and a gas station, both for servicing company vehicles. The gas station has two 4,000 gallon tanks, one for unleaded gasoline and the other for diesel.
In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.3(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.
