Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located:
Albany, Albany County
The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a modification to the facility's Title V Air Facility Permit to expand the capabilities at the Terminal to include the storage of heated petroleum products, including crude oil and biofuels. The heated petroleum products will be subject to the existing throughput caps in the Title V Permit; as a result, no increase to the Terminal's existing throughput caps are being requested. The products require heating to be pumped and will be heated to varying temperatures based on the viscosity of the product. The emissions from the heated petroleum products are lower than the emissions from the crude oil that is currently permitted for storage at the facility; therefore the facility's potential to emit (PTE) will not change as a result of this modification.
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.
Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below.
