In addition, the internal combustion engines are subject to the non-methane organic carbon (NMOC) emission reduction requirements of New Source Performance Standard 40 CFR 60 Subpart WWW, Standards of Performance for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Part 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the 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. After the public comment period, the USEPA will be provided a proposed permit and will have an additional 45 day period for review. If the USEPA does not raise any objection, the Department will issue the permit.

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.
