Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management

Project is Located:

Brooklyn, Kings County

Project Description:

The Department is accepting public comment on a Solid Waste Management Facility application, subject to 6 NYCRR Part 360 Subparts 1, 6 and 11 for the construction and operation of the proposed Clearbrook brown grease liquid storage and processing facility. The proposed facility will be enclosed in prefabricated structures, approximately 30,800 square feet, constructed on a 123,300 square foot parcel of Bush Terminal, an M3 industrially-zoned property under a 20-year lease with New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC). The proposed permitted throughput is 35,000 gallons per day of grease trap waste from restaurants and similar establishments. The influent would be screened to remove debris, processed using gravity separation in heated tanks, then pumped into holding tanks to further separate sludge and solids by gravity. Decant water comprising approximately 90 percent of the influent would be discharged to NYCDEP sanitary sewer pursuant to an industrial waste permit. The recovered grease would be utilized as follows: shipped to a third party for recovery as biodiesel, used onsite as fuel, or sold as a finished fuel product.

Grease trap waste would be delivered to the facility via 25 to 30 trucks per day, each with a capacity of 3000 - 5000 gallons. The trucks will be owned by TEI ClearBrook and similar licensed third party vendors. The proposed future site truck traffic would be less than half of the current traffic generated from the site. All TEI vehicles would use DOT approved truck routes to access the facility and enter and exit the site from an existing guard booth at 50th Street. All grease waste would be contained on-site in stationary tanks which would be vented through a scrubber and filtration system to eliminate odor impacts. Indoor operations take place on an impermeable concrete floor and the grease processing operation is fully enclosed in a negative-pressure building. Doors are required to be closed during operations. The fully enclosed building would eliminate potential noise, odor and vector impacts in the community. Once the permitting is complete, the construction of the facility is expected to take 12 to 18 months, including demolition and infrastructure upgrade. Once constructed, the facility will be operated 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

The site is located at 5102 1st Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11232. Document repositories established for this project are located at the Community Board 7, 4201 4th Ave., Brooklyn; and Sunset Park Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, 5108 4th Ave., Brooklyn.
