Application ID: 8-2614-00205/00137
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Rochester, Monroe County
Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve a modification to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit for the permittee's Kodak Park facility that is located in the City of Rochester and the Town of Greece in Monroe County. The modification will require the Eastman Kodak Company (Kodak) to conduct a short term high intensity monitoring (STHIM) program for 17 dioxin and dibenzofuran congeners. The monitoring program shall consist of two phases, one before and one after the planned upgrade to the Air Pollution Control Equipment (APCE) associated with the Building 218 Chemical Waste Incinerator. For 13 weeks prior to the upgrade, Kodak will take weekly samples from four locations: the Effluent from Building 218 APCE, the Influent to King's Landing WWTP, the Effluent from King's Landing WWTP (Outfall 001), and the Effluent from the Building 95 - Multiple Hearth Incinerator (MHI) APCE. Then following the upgrade of the APCE at Building 218 incinerator, Kodak will collect weekly wastewater samples from the same locations for 26 weeks. The Department does not want the sampling program to delay the start of the new APCE equipment at Building 218 and therefore has included sampling schedule flexibility which will allow both the sampling program and the APCE start up to occur in a timely manner.

The modification and draft revised SPDES permit pages are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.

Application ID: 8-2626-00109/00009
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Gates, Monroe County
Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and intends to issue an initial Title V Facility Air Permit for the Rochester Technology Park, formerly known as Elmgrove Park, located in the Town of Gates, Monroe County. The facility consists of five dual fuel boilers that are used to provide heating and process steam for their tenant companies. The facility is a major stationary source of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and is required to obtain a Title V permit.

The current State Facility permit contains permit conditions that derate ( i.e. physically restrict) the existing five boilers to operate at a maximum rate of 50 mmBtu/hr in order to limit or "cap" the facility's emissions of NOx in accordance with the facility's NOx RACT Compliance Plan per 6 NYCRR Part 227. These conditions will be carried over into the Title V permit.

The application, draft permit, supporting materials, and regulations are available for review at the Region 8 Avon office. Written comments of support or objection must be received within the 30 day comment period ending on the last filing date indicated. The Department may hold a public hearing and/or modify the draft permit based on significant or important information raised during the comment period. In addition, the Administrator of the US EPA has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V permit determined not to be in compliance with the Clean Air Act or 6 NYCRR Part 201. Following the 30 day comment period, the US EPA will have an additional 45 days to review the draft or modified draft permit. If the US EPA does not raise any objection in that time, the Department may issue the final draft permit as the Title V permit.

Arlington, VA 22209-
Facility: Aes Greenidge LLC

Dresen, NY 14527-
Application ID: 8-5736-00004/00013
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)
Project is Located: Torrey, Yates County
Project Description:

In response to an application submitted by AES Greenidge 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 that of the Title V Facility Permit. The Department proposes to issue these Permits for existing processes at the AES Greenidge Electric Generating Station.

Greenidge Generating Station consists of three emission units: two electric generating units, G-00003 and G-00004; and one coal handling system unit, G-00005. 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 G-00003 consists of two dry bottom, wall-fired, pulverized coal boilers, B0004 and B0005, each with a maximum heat input of 380 MMBTU/HR. Emissions from boilers B0004 and B0005 exhaust through a common stack, Emission Point 00003. Emission Unit G-00004 consists of one dry bottom, tangentially-fired, pulverized coal boiler, B0006, with a maximum heat input of 1,117 MMBTU/HR. Emissions from boiler B0006 exhaust through another stack, Emission Point 00004. All three boilers burn bituminous coal as their primary fuel, with clean (untreated) wood, waste wood product from a furniture manufacturer ("Bush" wood), #2 fuel oil, diesel oil, waste oil, and natural gas also permitted. B0004 and B0005 are each equipped with a multiclone mechanical particulate collector and an electrostatic precipitator to control particulate emissions. B0006 has an electrostatic precipitator to control particulate emissions. SO2 emissions from all three boilers are controlled by limiting the sulfur content of the fuel. NOx emissions from all three boilers are controlled through good combustion practices, and for boiler B0006 also by the addition of overfire air and natural gas reburn. Emission Unit G-00005 includes all coal handling operations at the facility. Coal is delivered to the facility by train and truck. Coal delivered by train is dumped from the bottom of the cars into hoppers below the tracks. Coal delivered by truck is dumped directly on a coal storage pile. Coal from the storage pile is then pushed to a reclaim hopper by a bulldozer. Both the track hopper and reclaim hopper discharge coal to an apron conveyor which delivers coal to the coal crusher. A series of conveyors then take crushed coal to the transfer house and then to the boiler/turbine building for delivery to the bunkers for the three boilers. The capacity of the coal handling system is 300 tons per hour. All outside conveyors are enclosed on three sides for dust control.

The Title IV (Acid Rain) permit was initially issued March 22, 1999, with an effective date of January 1, 2000, and an expiration date of December 31, 2004. It will be modified to allow its permit term to coincide with the permit term of the Initial Title V Facility Permit. The modified Title IV permit and its attachments are included as part of this project.

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.
