Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Brooklyn, Kings County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Renewal permit for a publicly owned secondary water pollution control plant currently permitted to treat 100 mgd average dry weather flow of primarily residential sewage, and 200 mgd of wet weather flow. The plant has both combustion and non-combustion wastewater treatment operational processes. The processes include four 2246 hp/2000 kw dual fuel internal combustion engines; three hot water 25 mbtu/hr package boilers; two waste gas burners to flare excessive digester gas; and one 125 kw engine generator for emergency power. In addition the facility has an extensive odor control system. The engines may be operated in such a manner as to allow the plant to participate in the NYS Electrical Demand Reduction Program. Oxides of Nitrogen for distillate oil/gas fired mid-size boilers are limited to an upper limit of 0.08 pounds per million Btus. The alternative NOx RACT emission limit for all four engines when burning dual fuel (natural gas, digester gas, with # 2 fuel as pilot fuel) is 3.5 gm/bhp-hr. The alternative NOx RACT emission limit for all four engines when burning diesel fuel is 7.15 gm/bhp-hr.

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.
