Facility: Hugo Neu Schnitzer East-Queens Yard
30-27 Greenpoint Avenue

Application ID: 2-6304-00268/00015
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 approve this application. The existing Hugo Neu Schnitzer East - Queens Yard facility is located at 30-27 Greenpoint Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101. This is a minor Title V modification for the permit issued on 10/19/2001 for this facility. The modification involves an increase in the number of permitted operating hours for the main engine-generator (emission unit 2-00002, emission point 0001). The main engine's operating hours are to be increased from 2700 hours to 3050 hours per year upon the issuance of this Title V modification. This modification results in no net NOx emissions increase; therefore, New Source Review, 6 NYCRR 231-2, is not applicable to this faciity and this modification qualifies as a minor modification. The modification impacts the maximum gallons of fuel (#2 diesel oil) from 814,600 to 919,600 gallons annually and the tons of scrap metal processed from 450,000 to 500,000 tons annually.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(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 6 NYCRR Part 201.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting mateials, 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 at a late 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 comments. 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 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 Law exist.
