Project Description:

The facility consists of a LM5000 stationary gas turbine with a heat recovery steam generator, with a gas fired duct burner rated for 77 mmBtu/hr, and an auxiliary boiler rated for 99 mmBtu/hr. The facility caps CO and NOx emissions at 100 tons per year. The facility is subject to the acid rain program and therefore is subject to 40 CFR 72.6.

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.
