Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a permit renewal to Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL).

BNL is a government-owned contractor-operated research facility. The laboratory is managed by Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA) which is a limited liability company with two principal members: the Research Foundation of the State University of New York on behalf of SUNY at Stony Brook and Battelle Memorial Institute. The laboratory carries out basic and applied research in the following fields: high-energy nuclear and solid state physics; fundamental material and structural properties and the interactions of matter; nuclear medicine; biomedical and environmental sciences; and selected energy technologies.

The laboratory's support organizations manage a number of facilities which are subject to federally enforceable regulatory requirements. Among the more significant facilities is the central steam facility which operates four boilers. Two of the boilers are subject to NSPS Subpart DB requirements and are equipped with continuous emissions monitoring systems. All of the boilers are subject to, and comply with, 6 NYCRR Part 227-2 NOx Reasonable Available Control Technology requirements. Other regulated sources include a paint spray booth subject to 6 NYCRR Part 228 provisions, and two on-site gasoline refueling facilities which must meet 6 NYCRR Part 22 5-3 Reid Vapor Pressure and Federal reformulated gasoline provisions, along with 6 NYCRR Part 230 Stage I and Stage II vapor collection system requirements.

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.

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Smithtown, Suffolk County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a new Air State Facility Permit to the Town of Smithtown.

The Town of Smithtown (Town) owns and operates the Smithtown Municipal Services Facility (MSF) located at 85 Old Northport Road, Kings Park, Town of Smithtown, Suffolk County, New York. The facility consists of a closed and capped landfill with an active landfill gas collection system that collects gas generated by the landfill and sends it to a candlestick (open) flare for combustion. The flare is capable of combusting landfill gas at a flow rate of 35-350 standard cubic feet per minute (scfm) at a methane concentration of 30-50%. The facility also operates a active perimeter collection system and vents any collected gas to the atmosphere.

In addition to the landfill and landfill gas collection and control equipment, the facility operates three (3) biodiesel-fired wood chipping/shredding units. Each unit is powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE). Two engines are rated at 630 horsepower and the third is rated at 365 horsepower. One of the three units is always used for back-up purposes, and as such, all three units will not operate simultaneously.

The facility also operates four (4) natural gas-fired space heating boilers, above ground leachate tanks and underground fuel storage tanks and all these air emission sources are exempt from permitting
