The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has reviewed and approved a comprehensive performance test/trial burn (CPT/TB) plan for the existing rotary kiln incinerator located at Kodak Park, under both RCRA and Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) rules for hazardous waste combustors. This notice is pursuant to 40 CFR 63.1207(e)(2) and 6NYCRR 373-1.9(a)(4), which requires notification of local government and the public. The plan was approved on August 28, 2003. The CPT/TB is currently scheduled to begin on November 11, 2003 and will continue intermittently up to November 15, 2003. Delays in the schedule are possible, however. The CPT/TB are a comprehensive series of tests being performed at the request of DEC to demonstrate compliance with the performance standards for the hazardous waste incinerator in the 6NYCRR Part 373-2.15 and the emission standards in MACT Rule. Kodak has opted to perform a joint test under both rules. Kodak has also submitted a continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS) Performance Evaluation Test (PET) plan, which is also being approved by the Department. Data from the testing will be available in the winter of 2004, and will be incorporated into Kodak’s applications for permits. Copies of the approved trial burn and PET plans are available for review at the DEC Region 8 office, 6274 East Avon-Lima Rd., Avon, NY 14414 (Peter Lent (585) 226-5390), or DEC Central Office, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-7251 (James Lansing, (518) 402-8609).
