Applicant: Sisters of Charity Hospital

Buffalo, NY 14214 -2648
Facility: Sisters of Charity Hospital
2157 Main St
Buffalo, NY 14214
Application ID: 9-1402-00465/00016
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Buffalo, Erie County
Project Description:
The department has made a tentative determination to approve this application. The hospital operates three boilers which are subject to regulation. The main boiler burns natural gas or coal. The first of the two backup boilers burns natural gas or #2 fuel oil and the second backup boiler burns #2 fuel oil. If either of the backup boilers were used continuously with #2 fuel oil or the main boiler was used continuously with coal, the emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) would exceed the major facility thresholds for SO2. This permit limits the facility's ability to emit SO2 to less than the major facility threshold value of 100 tons per year (TPS). The SO2 emissions have also been capped below the applicability thresholds of 40 CFR52.21, Subpart A, Prevention of Significant Deterioration, which is 250 TPS. The main boiler is subject to the 6NYCRR Part 227-1.2(a)(4) particulate emission limitation for stationary combustion installations burning coal. All the boilers are subject to the 6NYCRR Part 227-1.3(a) opacity limitation of 20 percent. The 1.5% sulfur in fuel oil limit found in 6NYCRR Part 225-1.2(a)(2) also applies to the facility. This permit will replace the current Title V permit, issued on September 28, 1999, which had been required due to the operation of a medical waste incinerator at the hospital. The incinerator permanently ceased operation on April 15, 2004. The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review and comment during normal business hours at the DEC office listed in this notice.
