Landfill gas primarily contain Methane and Non Methane Organic Compounds.  Regulated processes to be authorized under this permit consist of collection of landfill gas and monitoring of emissions. The application and draft permit are available for review at Region 1 office of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. The facility is subject to 6NYCRR Part 201, 208 and 40 CFR Part60.  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. It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files. The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within 2 business days of contact, during normal business hours(8:30 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date. DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory. A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment. DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists. If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting documents. The applicant and all persons who have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing. Comments and requests for a legislative public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below. An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for an adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination. An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exist. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm

Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Smithtown, Suffolk County
Project Description:
The Department has drafted a permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the New York State Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and made a tentative determination to approve this application for the operation of the applicant's existing two external boilers and one ethylene oxide sterilizer. As a result of the permanent shut down of the facility's medical waste incinerator and acceptance of a federally enforceable permit condition to cap the facility's total oxides of nitrogen emissions (NOX) to be below the major source threshold of 25 tons per year, the facility becomes eligible to operate as an Air State Facility (minor source). The NOX cap will be accomplished by restricting the fuel consumption of natural gas to be below 296 million cubic feet and No. 2 fuel oil to be below 40,000 gallons per year. The draft Air State Facility permit includes conditions from the original Permit to Construct for the boilers and the sterilizer based on 6NYCRR Part 201-Permits, 6NYCRR Part 212-General Process Emission Sources, 6NYCRR Part 227-Stationary Combustion Installations. When these overlap, the permit contains the most stringent limits, which includes emissions limits, monitoring conditions and record keeping requirements.
