Oceanside, NY 11572
Application ID: 1-2820-02479/00031
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Hempstead, Nassau County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for an Air State Facility permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL).  The facility operates internal an combustion engine fueled by landfill gases to generate electricity.  The facility's potential to emit (PTE) oxides of nitrogen (NOx) no longer exceeds the major facility threshold of 25 tons per year (tpy).  The proposed State Facility Permit caps NOx emissions at the facility to less than 22.5 tpy. The facility has agreed to accept permit conditions that will limit facility wide emissions of oxides of nitrogen at 22.5 tons per year.  The decrease in emissions is due directly to the decrease in landfill gases generated by the landfill.  By accepting these state and federally enforceable limits the facility will not be subject to the provisions of the Title V operating permit program.  The application and the draft permit are available for review at the Region 1 office in Stony Brook.  The facility is located at the Oceanside Landfill, Long Beach Rd. and Mott Ave. in the Hamlet of Oceanside, Town of Hempstead, Nassau County
