Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located:
DEC has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a modification to the Air Title V Facility permit for the existing facility located at Oneida Herkimer Renewable Energy Facility, 7044 State Route 294, Ava, NY 13309 in Oneida County.
This facility has a PSD cap in conjunction with the Ava Landfill. The Ava landfill has applied to make some changes to the flares at the facility. They are removing 14 passive flares and are installing one 1250 cfm flare. The changes to this permit involve subtracting and adding the appropriate flares for tracking emissions under the PSD cap and expiring any old regulations and installing the new regulations.
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.
