Facility: Aes Hickling LLC
11884 Hickling Rd
Corning, NY 14830-
Application ID: 8-4638-00011/00020
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)
Project is Located: Corning, Steuben County
Project Description:

In response to an application submitted by AES Hickling LLC, the Department has prepared a Draft Title V Facility Permit, and proposes to modify an existing Title IV (Acid Rain) Facility Permit to allow its permit term to coincide with the permit term of the Title V Facility Permit. The Department proposes to issue these Permits for existing processes at the AES Hickling Electric Generating Station, which is currently not operating and has been placed in a "Long Term Cold Standby" mode. Hickling Station consists of three emission units: two electric generating units (H-00001 and H-00002) and one coal handling system unit (H-00003). It is a Major Stationary Source, and is required to obtain a Title V Permit as specified in 6 NYCRR Part 201-6, due to potential emissions in excess 6 NYCRR Part 201-2 and Title V thresholds of: 100 tons per year of particulate matter smaller than 10 microns (PM-10); 100 tons per year of total particulates; 100 tons per year of sulfur dioxide (SO2); 100 tons per year of oxides of nitrogen (NOx); 100 tons per year of carbon monoxide (CO); and 25 tons per year of total hazardous air pollutants (HAP).

Emission Unit H-00001 consists of two traveling grate stoker boilers, each with a maximum heat input of 291 million BTU per hour, exhausted through a common stack (Emission Point 00001). Emission Unit H-00002 consists of two traveling grate stoker boilers, each with a maximum heat input of 416 million BTU per hour, exhausted through a second common stack (Emission Point 00002). All four boilers burn bituminous coal as their primary fuel, and have been permitted to use a variety of other fuels, including clean wood, creosote treated wood (CTW), coal tar soils (CTS), and waste wood product from a furniture manufacturer (Bush Wood). Each boiler is equipped with an electrostatic precipitator to control particulate emissions. Emission Unit H-00003 includes coal handling processes at the facility.

The application and Draft Title V Facility Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office. If comments raise significant issues, the Department may hold a public hearing and/or modify the Draft Permit. In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201.6.4(c)(1), the Administrator of EPA has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility permit determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201. After the comment period, EPA will have an additional 45 day period for review of the Proposed Title V Facility Permit, which is the Draft Permit with any modifications after public comment and/or hearing. If EPA does not raise an objection the Department may then issue the Title V Facility Permit.
