Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management

Project is Located:

Bronx, Bronx County

Project Description:

The project involves the authorization of an existing operating nonpetroleum oil facility that handles used cooking oil. The facility is currently operating under a NYSDEC Consent Order for operating with a NYS Part 360 Solid Waste Permit. The facility operations involve the daily collection of yellow grease from area restaurants via trucks and the pumpage of grease into the facility's stationary tanks. Grease is allowed to settle into a refined yellow grease product and sludge comprised of wastewater and food particles. The refined yellow grease is then pumped into tanker trucks and trucked to a third party facility that further processes the grease into biodiesel fuel. Wastewater is pumped into tanker trucks and sent to a third-party facility for disposal. Waste food particles are bagged and collected daily by a licensed solid waste hauler.

This permit would authorize the facility to accept up to 14,400 gallons per day of used cooking oil for processing. The maximum on-site storage capacity is as follows: 37,000 gallons for used cooking oil; 7,650 gallons for removed waste water; and 15,400 gallons for processed material. The authorized hours of operation are 24 hours per day Monday through Friday; Saturday and Sunday from 6am to 6pm. No construction or ground disturbance is planned in association with this permit. The facility is fully enclosed and located within an existing building within the M1-2 zoning district.

Application ID:

2-6308-00096/00009

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 modify an existing Title V Air Facility Permit held by KIAC Partners for the operation of the Calpine JFK Energy Center located at JFK International Airport to incorporate into the Title V permit the existing operation of six mid-size boilers for airport terminal production of hot water, activated only in the event of natural gas curtailment or operational issues with existing combustion turbines. The boilers are currently operated by KIAC Partners under NYSDEC Certificates to Operate issued to the Port Authority of NY/NJ since November 22, 1995. Because of a change in operator liability, and to the rules and regulations since issuance, the Department is applying all necessary environmental review to update the regulation of these sources. The requested change is to better reflect existing operations, and does not reflect any modification of existing emission sources or any new emission sources. Emissions of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) from the six mid-size boilers will continue to be limited to 24 T/yr on a rolling 12-mo. basis per the existing Certificates to Operate.

Upon the issuance of this modification, the six mid-size boilers will become subject to 6 NYCRR Part 227-2 which specifies the Reasonably Available Control Technology Requirements (RACT) for major facilities of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx). On May 15, 2017, the facility submitted a NOx RACT variance based on February 22, 2017 stack testing report results. Based on the NOx RACT evaluation dated May 15, 2017 and economic analysis, the facility is being granted a NOx RACT Variance of 0.15 pounds of NOx per million Btus for the six mid-size boilers, (Emission Sources HWG01, HWG02, HWG03, HWG04, HWG05 & HWG06) when operating on natural gas (Processes BG1 & BG2), and a NOx RACT Variance of 0.25 pounds of NOx per million Btus for the six mid-size boilers, (Emission Sources HWG01, HWG02, HWG03, HWG04, HWG05 & HWG06) when operating on distillate oil (Processes BD1 & BD2). This change in operator liability is not subject to New Source Review For New And Modified Facilities, 6 NYCRR Part 231 and not subject to Prevention of Significant Deterioration 40CFR 52.21(j). Because the six boilers were constructed before June 9, 1989, they are not subject to 40CFR 60 Subpart Dc. This draft permit includes 6 NYCRR 201-7, Capping out of 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart JJJJJJ: this condition sets forth an emission cap that cannot be exceeded by the facility: periodic testing on liquid fuel (Process BD1 & BD2) will not exceed a combined total of 48 hours during any calendar year for the six mid-size boilers in Emission Unit B-OILRS.

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.
