Application ID:

2-6104-00015/00009

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Brooklyn, Kings County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue an Air State Facility (ASF) permit for an existing permitted Air Title V (ATV) Medical and Mental Health Center. The Title V permit (DEC ID#2-6104-00015/00008) will be relinquished and discontinued upon ASF issuance. This application is being submitted to downgrade the current ATV to an ASF Permit by capping the facility-wide NOx emissions to 24.9 T/yr. Steam is produced by three boilers (Emission Unit U-00001: Emission Sources SODR1, S0DR2 & S0DR3) for the space heating of the building, each with a maximum heat input of 29.7, 35.2 AND 22.6 MMBTU/hr respectively firing natural gas as the primary fuel and No.2 as a secondary fuel. The three original boilers were installed in 1972, and each with heat input of 45.13 MMBTU/hr have now been de-rated (Emission Sources SODR1, S0DR2 & S0DR3). Emissions are exhausted through a common stack (Emission Point E0001). The facility operates other sources which are considered exempt from permitting in accordance with 6 NYCRR 201-3.2(c): five emergency generators, nine above ground fuel storage tanks, three day tanks and underground fuel storage tanks, five laboratory fume hoods used for research and a disassembled ethylene oxide sterilizer.

The facility is subject to the provisions of State Facility requirements specified under 6 NYCRR 201-7. The Air State Facility permit contains a listing of the applicable federal, state, and compliance monitoring requirements for the facility. The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the DEC office provided in this notice. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicated. DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon an evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised. Hearing notices will contain instructions on filing for party status and submitting comments.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal for an existing permitted facility that operates three 63 MMBtu/hr natural gas/No.2 oil boilers, seven No.2 oil emergency generators, two 1.4 MW natural gas cogen units, a dual use generator (emergency power back up engine) and nine exempt boilers. As part of the renewal, three 6.3 mmBTU/hr exempt existing boilers burning No.4 fuel oil, located in the Littauer Building, will be decommissioned and replaced with three 4.3 mmBTU/hr exempt dual fuel boilers (No. 2 fuel oil/Natural Gas). Additionally, one natural gas 0.9 mmBTU/hour exempt boiler will be installed in the Sloman Building. The Department has determined that the facility modifications are not subject to New Source Review, supporting documentation has been included in the application.

This facility is subject to the following Subpart 227-2 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT): Based on the June 20, 2007 and updated on May 30, 2017 NOx RACT variance request to economic and technological reasons for the cogen units under Emission Unit U-GENCP. Based on the variance request, the Department approved an alternative NOx RACT emission limit of 6.5 grams per brake horsepower-hr for these cogen units. Based on stack test results a request to amend this limit to 6.5 gr/bhp-hr was made on June 26, 2009, and approved by this permit.

Mid-size boilers, emission sources 00CP1, 00CP2, 00CP3 burning oil/gas subject to section 227-2.4(c)(1)(ii) meet the NOx emission limit of 0.08 pounds NOx per million Btu on or after July 1, 2014, may commit to burning a cleaner fuel between May 1st and September 30th of each year. Fuel switching must result in quantifiable annual NOx emissions equal to or less than the NOx emissions expected if the emission source complied with the applicable presumptive RACT emission limits set forth in section 227-2.4(c)(1)(ii) of 0.08 pounds NOx per million Btu.

The NOx emissions from the three 63 MMBtu/hr boilers are capped to under 25 tons/yr to avoid New Source Review under 6NYCRR Subpart 231-2. This is a major facility since the facility wide NOx emissions are greater than 25 tons/yr and is subject to Part 201-6 requirements.

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. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/32249.html.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. Comments and requests for a public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.
