Rochester District Heating Cooperative Inc

Facility:

Rochester District Heating Cooperative

Rochester, NY 14604

Application ID:

8-2614-00709/00005

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Rochester, Monroe County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this first renewal of the Air State Facility permit for the Rochester District Heating Cooperative's (RDHC) Rochester Facility. The RDHC Rochester Facility produces heating and process steam, as well as hot water, for several buildings in the City of Rochester. Emission sources at this facility include five natural gas fired boilers that have the ability to burn No. 2 fuel oil as a backup fuel. The boilers have a total heat input rating of about 402 million BTU per hour.

RDHC's ASF permit continues to restrict facility-wide emissions of CO and NOx to below 100 tons per year each, the Title V major source thresholds, and the Part 227-2 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) threshold for NOx. The permit renewal carries over the limit on CO and NOx emissions by limiting emissions of these pollutants during any 12-month period to less than 99 tons per year each on a 12-month rolling basis. Renewal 1 removes Boiler No. 3, which was demolished and removed in August 2016, and adds replacement Boilers No. 1 and No. 2. The replacement of Boiler No. 3 with Boilers No. 1 and No. 2 was made through Operational Flexibility and was approved by the Department via letter on March 8, 2016. Boilers No. 1 and No. 2 are subject to 40CFR 60 Subpart Dc standards for small steam generating units.

This renewal incorporates other changes made through Operational Flexibility during the term of the prior permit and makes minor corrections or changes to permit conditions. In addition, due to reductions in the allowable fuel oil sulfur limits under 6 NYCRR Part 225, facility PTE emissions of sulfur dioxide have been reduced below the 100 ton per year major source threshold. Therefore, the 500,000 gallons per year backup fuel oil usage limit to cap sulfur dioxide emissions has been removed as part of Renewal 1.
