Applicant:

Baker Commodities Inc
4020 Bandini Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90058

Facility:

Baker Commodities
2268 Browncroft Blvd
Penfield, NY 14625

Application ID:

8-2642-00003/00009

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Penfield, Monroe County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Department Initiated Modification to the Air State Facility Permit for Baker Commodities Inc.

This facility, located at 2268 Browncroft Blvd. in the Town of Penfield, converts inedible meat processing animal by-products to meal, tallow, oil, and grease, and also processes spent restaurant grease into a saleable product.

Equipment and operations at the plant include: A grinder to reduce material to a slurry; a steam heated cooker to break down the by-products to soluble, insoluble, and volatile components; a condenser for the water component of the volatiles; a press to aid separation of fat solids from the remaining solids; a hammer mill for meal production from the remaining solids; and a centrifuge and filter for tallow production from the separated fats. In addition, spent restaurant grease processing operations include a grease cooker, screening, sedimentation, and centrifugation equipment, to separate the grease from water and entrained solids.

Baker Commodities Inc. has installed new chemical injection, control, and monitoring equipment to better eliminate process odor emissions and improve system monitoring. This equipment will also decrease reaction time in correcting operational problems and upset conditions that could potentially result in odorous emissions.

This draft permit includes the following provisions: contains regulatory changes instituted by the Department since issuance of the previous permit, allows Baker to use #2 fuel oil or yellow grease (used cooking oil) as additional alternate fuels in its largest boiler, incorporates equipment installed by the company to improve emission controls (described above), requires monitoring of these control systems, encompasses an updated Air Quality Operating Procedures Manual, and establishes a complaint response procedure.

Baker Commodities Inc. has also accepted Permit Conditions that restrict this facility's potentials to emit Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and Sulfur Oxides (SOx) to below 50 tons per year (TPY) each (reduced from 100 TPY), which is less than one half of the threshold of applicability for: 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) for a Major Stationary Source, and 6 NYCRR Part 227 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) for NOx.

These Permit Conditions are maintained in this permit, specifying that this facility is not currently subject to these regulations.

For your review, the Draft Air State Facility Permit may be viewed or downloaded as a PDF file at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/dardata/boss/afs/draft_asf.html. If you do not have internet access or if you experience a problem downloading the PDF file, a paper copy will be sent at your request. The application and Draft Permit will also be available for review by the public, at this office.

We intend to issue the Draft Permit as a Final Air State Facility Permit, provided that any comments received do not raise significant issues that must be addressed.
