Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application.  Barrett Paving Materials, Inc. owns and operates a hot mix asphalt production facility located at 14 Brandywine Avenue in Binghamton, NY.  The facility primarily consists of one batch mix asphalt plant with a maximum rated production capacity of 300 tons/hour.  The facility is currently permitted to burn natural gas in the rotary aggragate dryer.  The facility has requested a permit modification to burn #2 fuel oil and waste fuel oil in the dryer.

The NYSDEC has completed review of the application and has prepared a draft permit allowing for the use of #2 fuel oil and waste fuel oil in the aggregate dryer.  The draft permit includes a 495,000 tons/year production limit of asphalt to ensure that facility emissions remain below the major source thresholds for Title V permitting.  In addition, the permit includes limitations on the composition of waste oil burned at the facility and requires sampling and analysis of each delivery of waste oil received at the facility.  The permit also requires the facility to demonstrate a minimum combustion efficiency of 99%, and requires the facility to perform annual tune-ups on the asphalt dryer waste oil burner system to maintain combustion efficiency.
