Application ID: 8-1836-00012/00007
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Le Roy, Genesee County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve a new Part 360 solid waste management facility permit for the Village of LeRoy which proposes to construct a 60 wet ton per day N-Viro alkaline stabilization facility that will accept the Village's wastewater sludge and  sludges from other wastewater treatment facilities, to be located at the existing Village composting facility.  The N-Viro process includes the addition of reactive and non-reactive admixtures to wastewater treatment plant sludges to generate a marketable soil conditioner (or Ag Lime) called "N-Viro soil."  The admixtures, which must be approved by the Department prior to use, may include cement kiln dust, lime kiln dust, quicklime fines, coal ash, wood ash, or pulverized or hydrated lime.  These materials will be mixed, pasteurized, shredded and tested to produce a salable product. Facility emissions will be controlled by a Biofilter which will consist of sending process gases via perforated piping through a bed of wood chip and yard yaste or compost media. The facility will be operated by WeCare Organics.  The file is available for review and comment at the Region 8 office.

390 Elmwood Ave
Rochester, NY 14627
Application ID: 8-2699-00059/00027
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Rochester, Monroe County
Project Description:
The Department has received an Air State Facility application from the University of Rochester.  The University currently holds a Title V permit for operation of its Power Plant, University River Campus, and Strong Hospital Medical Center.  With this application, the University proposes to modify operations and reduce potential emissions, capping facility emission levels below Title V thresholds.

The facility is located at 390 Elmwood Avenue in the City of Rochester, Monroe County. Facility Emission Units (EU) include:

EU 0-00002, a multiple chamber incinerator for cremation of animal remains and bedding;
EU 0-00008, a multiple chamber retort incinerator for cremation of human remains;
EU 0-00010, an incinerator permanently shut down;
EU B-OILR1, a coal fired boiler permanently shut down;
EU B-OILRS, three existing boilers and one new boiler capable of burning either natural gas or #2 fuel oil, and a single #2 fuel oil fired boiler.

The modification consists of: addition of a 245.5 million BTU per hour boiler and generator unit which will generate power and steam for the University facility and be able to feed power back to the grid, and; limits on facility emissions.  The University has proposed to restrict facility potentials to emit oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) to below the 100 ton per year applicability thresholds in 6 NYCRR Part 2016 (Title V), Part 231-2 New Source Review in Nonattainment Areas and Ozone Transport Regions, and 40 CFR 52-A.21 Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD).  In response, the Department has drafted Permit Conditions to limit fuel usage by all five boilers to restrict facility potential to emit NOx and SO2.

To verify that the facility is in compliance with these permit conditions, the University of Rochester will be required to maintain a log of fuel use, 12 month rolling totals of fuel use, calculate monthly emissions of NOX and SO2, and calculate 12 month rolling totals of emissions.  These records are to be maintained for a minimum of five years, and must be made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office and will also be made available by the University of Rochester.
