Geddes, NY 13209
Application ID: 7-3132-00042/00017
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Article 19 Title IV (Phase II Acid Rain)
Project is Located: Geddes, Onondaga County
Project Description:
Onondaga Cogeneration Limited Partnership owns and operates a cogeneration facility in Geddes, NY.  The facility consists of two stationary gas turbines and a package boiler. Emissions of NOx from each turbine are controlled with water injection and a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).  A CO catalyst is installed on Unit 1.  The applicant wishes to renew their Air Title V Permit.  The facility is subject to 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart GG, however, the permit limits are more restrictive.  The facility is also subject to the federal Acid Rain Program (the applicant is also requesting an Acid Rain Title IV Permit, with this application), DECís Nox Budget Program and the Stateís NOx and SO2 acid deposition reduction programs.  The turbines are neither subject to 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart YYYY (National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Stationary Combustion Turbines) nor the recently promulgated 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart KKKK (updated gas turbine regulations).

Since the initial Title V permit was issued, the facility installed a new package boiler. The boiler is subject to 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart Dc.  Emissions from the boiler did not trigger major new source review nor is it subject to the boiler NESHAP.

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 requester 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: www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm
