Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Bronx, Bronx County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Renewal 3 for an existing medical facility that operates a cogeneration power plant consisting of two mid-size boilers, three natural gas/No.2 Coltec IC Engines, one combustion turbine generator, one duct burner, four Ethylene Oxide sterilizers with two abators, ten emergency generators, thirty-six fuel oil storage tanks and fifteen fume hoods.

The Coltec IC engine (Emission Source S0002) and the Coltec IC engine (Emission Source S0003) are operating with an approved NOx RACT Variance of 2.8 gm/bhp-hr and 2.7 gm/bhp-hr NOx emission limit; respectively based on a NOx RACT economic analysis. The 68.4 MMBtu/hr Cleaver Brooks boiler that fires No. 2 (Emission Source S0005) is operating with an approved NOx RACT Variance of 0.12 lbs/MMBtu, based on a NOx RACT economic analysis. The upgrade of the burner on both the 98 MM Btu/hr Babcock Wilcox FM 106 and the 68.4 MMBtu/hr Cleaver-Brooks DL-76-RH boilers (Emission Sources S0004 & S0005) was approved to meet the new NOx RACT emission of 0.08 lbs/MM Btu beginning July 1, 2014.

Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) emissions for Unit U-C0003, the gas turbine (Process P04), is limited to a process material thruput for distillates No.1 and No.2 oil of 520,000 gallons/yr. NOx emissions for Unit U-C0003, the gas turbine (Process P03) and duct burner (Process P06) combination, is limited to a process material thruput for natural gas of 714 million cu.ft/yr.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Bronx, Bronx County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Modification for an existing facility that operates a Co-Generation Power Plant for Riverbay Corp Co-Op City, a housing development consisting of approx.15,000 apartments, three shopping centers and eight garages, all heated and cooled by the Power Plant. The facility operates five emission units: Boilers #1 and #2, two low pressure boilers using No.6 oil or natural gas rated at 371 mmBtu/hr each; Boiler #3, one high pressure rated at 212 mmBtu/hr firing natural gas; two Combustion Gas Turbines rated at 131 mmBtu/hr firing natural gas or ultra-low sulfur distillate (ULSD) No.2 oil; and an emergency diesel generator. Emission Source GEN01 in Emission Unit U-00007 is a "peak shaving unit" in the CDRP with an operational cap of 1,055 hours annually. A variance from full compliance with Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) emission limits of 5.19 gm/bhp-hr (7.0 gm/kW-hr) is relevant to Compliance Certification for 6NYCRR Part 227-2.4(f)(2)(ii) and applies to the engine-generators.

The application includes a modification based on the conversion of all boilers from using No.6 oil to using ULSD No.2 oil with 15 ppm or 0.0015% maximum sulfur as the secondary fuel and replace the old low pressure 371 MMBtu/hr Riley Stoker Corp Boiler #2 with a new high pressure 414 MMBtu/hr Victory Energy Boiler. The draft permit contains operating restrictions on each emission unit and combined emission units. No increase in caps or emissions is proposed. The draft permit NOx emission caps are based upon expected fuel consumption and emission factors from AP-42. The updated caps provide operational flexibility between Boilers #1 and #2: limited to 6.11 million gallons/yr of No.2 oil and 2,912 million cu.ft./yr of natural gas. The emission cap avoids New Source Review (6NYCRR Part 231-2) applicability. Stack testing was conducted August 20, 2014. Based on the test results for Emission Unit U-00003 (Boiler #3), the regulated contaminant was changed from NOx to Particulate (PM-10), and the draft permit now limits fuel oil consumption to 5.49 million gallons/yr.

NYSDEC revised 6NYCRR Part 227, the NOx Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) emission limits allowed for combustion sources. More stringent limits are now in place and have been incorporated into the draft permit: on or after July 1, 2014, the NOx RACT limit is 0.15 lbs/MMBtus. Boiler #2 has been equipped with low NOx burners and flue gas recirculation which results in lower NOx emissions, and complies with the revised lower NOx RACT emission limits. NYSDEC revised 6NYCRR Part 225, the sulfur limit in No.2 oil in NYC metropolitan region facilities. More stringent limits are now in place and have been incorporated into the draft permit: from 0.20% sulfur by weight to 0.0015% effective July 1, 2014. NYSDEC no longer uses 6NYCRR Part 227-1.2(a) (1)&(2) for Particulates, and those references have been removed from the draft permit, and have been replaced with SIP 6NYCRR Part 227.2(b)(1), the Particulate emission limit of 0.1 lb/MMBtus when operating on ULSD No.2 oil. Due to a change of regulations by NYSDEC and EPA, the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) conditions 6NYCRR Part 243 have been removed from the draft permit. Due to change of regulations by EPA, the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) conditions for NOx and SO2 Trading Programs were updated.

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.
