Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Nanticoke, Broome County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal of the Title V permit held by the Broome County LFG Recovery Facility, aka Broome Energy, for the landfill gas engines facility located in the town of Nanticoke, NY. This permit renewal incorporates the requirements of 40 CFR 63 Subpart ZZZZ-National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines for the landfill engines requiring engine maintenance be performed every 1,440 operating hours. The permit renewal also includes the removal of emission caps for nitrogen oxides (NOx) and Carbon Monoxide (CO) as the facility no longer will exceed the PSD thresholds on a potential to emit (PTE) basis for NOx and CO. The facility has removed several older engines which has resulted in lower facility emissions.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.3(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency 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.
