Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Brooklyn, Kings County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Renewal 3 for a facility that supplies gasoline to retail, commercial and industrial customers. The renewal application includes a request for permit transfer from ARC TERMINALS NEW YORK HOLDINGS LLC to ZENITH ENERGY NEW YORK HOLDINGS LLC that will be formed during a corporate reorganization. After closing, the facility will be renamed ZENITH ENERGY TERMINALS BROOKLYN. This facility stores gasoline, distillates, ethanol and gasoline additives prior to distribution. Product is received via pipeline, truck and barge; and distributed via truck. The facility is a gasoline loading facility consisting of 18 storage tanks: 10 have internal floating roofs used for gasoline or petroleum distillates storage, and 8 have fixed roofs used for gasoline additives, with a vapor recovery unit (VRU) which collects, absorbs and condenses the vapors displaced from gasoline loading into the tank trucks. The facility operates other sources which are considered exempt under 6NYCRR 201-3.2(c), listed in the draft permit.

The draft permit will continue to limit the annual gasoline and ethanol throughput to 541 million gallons at 7 mg/liter limit (6 hour rolling average) of volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions on the VRU, and limit the annual gasoline throughput to 526,900,000 gallons/yr. This cap ensures compliance with NSPS Subpart XX and 6 NYCRR Part 229, and limits the VOC emissions to under the non-attainment New Source Review threshold. The facility will monitor the gasoline throughput and the VRU performance to demonstrate that emissions are less than Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) (40 CFR 63) thresh holds. By limiting the gasoline annual throughput, the facility is also limiting the total HAPs to under 25 T/yr and any annual individual HAP (Benzene, Hexane, Methyl Terbutyl Ether, Toluene and Xylene) emission to under 10 T/yr. This renewal continues to include federal conditions for operating procedures, recordkeeping, compliance certifications and testing under: 40CFR 60 NSPS Subpart XX, 60.4 NSPS Subpart A, 60.7(b) NSPS Subpart A, 60.7(f) NSPS Subpart A, 60.502(b) NSPS Subpart XX, 60.502(f) NSPS Subpart XX, 60.502(g) NSPS Subpart XX, 60.502(e) NSPS Subpart XX, 60.502(i) NSPS Subpart XX, 60.502(j) NSPS Subpart XX, 60.505(b) NSPS Subpart XX, 60.505(d) NSPS Subpart XX; 40CFR 63.11087 Subpart BBBBBB, 63.11088 Subpart BBBBBB, 63.11089 Subpart BBBBBB, and 63.420(a)(2) Subpart R; 40 CFR Part 68; and 40CFR 82 Subpart F.

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.
