Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Brookhaven, Suffolk County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit, and made a tentative determination to approve this application for renewal of an existing Title V permit - pursuant to the Federal Clean Air Amendments and Article 19 of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law.  The facility is subject to NOx RACT (Reasonable Available Control Technology). The renewal allows an increase in annual NOx emissions, but avoids New Source Review by capping the increase to less than twenty five tons.  In addition to the two existing Waukesha P9390GSI natural gas engines, the renewal allows for the addition of a third Waukesha P9390GSI natural gas engine in order to power the automobile shredder. Each engine is rated at 2560 horsepower.  The shredder employs cyclone separators and baghouse filters to limit the particulate emissions.  In addition, the facility operates a Caterpillar 3516B diesel generator (rated at 1750 hp) to supply the electrical power that runs the emission control devices and other support equipment at the site.  The Waukesha L5792 Diesel generator, which was used as an emergency generator, is no longer in service. The facility is located in the Town of Brookhaven, at 71 Peconic Avenue, Medford, NY.
