Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Babylon, Suffolk County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this permit modification  for the applicant’s existing municipal waste combustor facility consisting of two mass burn waterwall type municipal waste combustor units with nominal design capacity of 375 tons per day.  This modification is being proposed for the purpose of establishing certified Emission Reduction Credits (ERC's) for past emission reductions which are the result of over-controlling nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from two (2) existing municipal waste combustor units. The emission reductions were created at Emission Unit 1-MBMWC through Federally enforceable conditions which limit total NOx emissions from emission unit 1-MBMWC to 260 tons per year and a short term NOx emission limit for each Emission Point (00003 and 00004) to150 parts per million dry volume corrected to 7% oxygen, based on a 24-hour block average. With this permit modification Covanta Babylon, Inc. will be establishing 126 tons of Nitrogen Oxides ERCs, in accordance with 6NYCRR Part 231 "New Source Review in Nonattainment areas".
This permit modification also contains a Department Initiated changes to correct inadvertent errors made in the MOD 1 version of the permit to include the NSPS mercury limits for municipal waste combustors and the appropriate carbon monoxide (CO) limit for mass burn waterwall combustors.
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 6NYCRR Part 201.
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 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 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
