Application ID:

2-6304-01496/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue an Air State Facility renewal for an existing facility, a drum mix hot mix asphalt plant. The plant will produce hot mix asphalt for local paving projects. Aggregate will be fed into the feed hopper of a diesel powered powerscreen Chieftain 800 screening plant and screened into three fractions. Fines and sized material will be used directly - over will be sent to an electrically driven crusher and rescreened. The aggregate produced will then be metered into the rotary dryer for heating to 300 degrees F. The dryer is fired with No.2 fuel oil at 75mmbtu/hr. The liquid petroleum additives are sprayed onto the material as it leaves the dryer. The finished product is conveyed to the insulated storage silo, from which it will be discharged into dump trucks. Gases from the dryer will be sent to the baghouse where they will be cooled by water spray to 160 degrees F and then filtered through disposable fiberglass micron size particulate filters. The generator will be used to power the crusher and provide other plant electrical loads. The screener has its own diesel drive. The plant will produce from 75,000 to 150,000 T of asphalt/yr.

The facility NOx (oxides of nitrogen) emissions are capped at 24.9 T/yr. Records demonstrating compliance with this cap will be kept in accordance with the permit specific conditions. The facility is subject to the provisions of State Facility specified under 6NYCRR 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.

Applicant:

NYC Dept of Sanitation
125 Worth St
New York, NY 10013 -4006

Facility:

NYCDOS - Fresh Kills Landfill
310 W Service Rd
Staten Island, NY 10314

Application ID:

2-6499-00029/00151

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Staten Island, Richmond County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Renewal 3 Permit for a municipal solid waste landfill operated by the NYC Dept. of Sanitation (DSNY). The landfill occupies approx. 2,200 acres along the Fresh Kills estuary on Staten Island. Closed in December 2001, it continues to generate methane containing landfill gas (LFG) from the anaerobic degradation of solid waste. Six LFG flares are installed at the landfill and there is an existing LFG processing facility. There are two landfill leachate treatment plants, three landfill vehicle maintenance and repair garages, a yard waste composting facility and two refueling stations for landfill vehicles. The three garages are operated by DSNY and are equipped with boilers with ratings ranging from 2.8 to 10.5 MMBtu/hr using No.2 fuel oil or natural gas.

As neither construction nor modification commenced after May 30, 1991, Fresh Kills Landfill is not subject to the New Source Performance Standard for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills (40 CFR 60, Subpart WWW). The calculated PTE for Total Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) is 12,000 lbs/yr or 6 TPY. As Fresh Kill Landfill emits less than 10 TPY of any individual HAP and less than 25 TPY of combined HAPs, it is an area source of HAPs, not a major source. The calculated NMOC emission rate based on current conditions is 10-20 Mg/yr. As Fresh Kills Landfill is not a major source of HAPs, was closed prior to January 16, 2003, and emits NMOC at a rate less than 50 Mg/yr, it is not subject to the National Emission Standard for HAPs for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills (40 CFR 63, Subpart AAAA).

In addition to Title V, the facility is subject to 40 CFR 52.21, facilities that are subject to Prevention of Significant Deterioration provisions; i.e. facilities that are located in an attainment area and that emit pollutants which are listed in 40 CFR 52.21(b)(23)(i) . The renewal continues to include 6 NYCRR 201-6.4(e), a facility-wide condition that specifies the overall permit requirements for compliance certification, including emission limitations, standards or work practices. This facility must submit an annual compliance certification to the NYSDEC and the USEPA and 40 CFR 52.21, Subpart A, a facility-wide Record Keeping/Maintenance Procedures condition that specifies the facility-wide emission limits from the following contaminants as: NOx 381.8 T/yr, CO 773.2 T/yr, PM-10 265.8 T/yr, NMOC 45.5 T/yr, SO2 119.4 T/yr.

The renewal continues to include 6 NYCRR 227-2.4(f)(2) Intermittent Emission Testing for Oxides of Nitrogen that applies to the existing Selexol LFG processing Plant 1 EU: U-00004, EP:P4001, Process A41 and Emission Source S4001 and EU: U-00004, EP:P4002, Process A41 and Emission Source S4002. The two (2) lean burn internal combustion compressor engines that are fired by processed LFG and a thermal oxidizer used to combust waste gases from the LFG recovery process. For internal combustion engines fired with landfill gas or digester gas (solely or in combination with natural gas), the limit of Oxides of Nitrogen emission is 2.0 grams per brake horsepower-hour. This condition sets the limit for emissions of oxides of nitrogen from internal combustion engines running on landfill gas at 2.0 grams per brake horsepower-hour. The owner/operator of the engine must test the emissions once during the term of the permit.

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.
