Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue an Air Title V permit renewal (ATV Renewal 3) to KIAC Partners for the operation of their existing permitted facility, Calpine JFK Energy Center, located at John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport in Jamaica, Queens. Calpine JFK Energy Center ("the facility") supplies electricity to JFK International Airport and to the Consolidated Edison (Con Ed) Power Distribution Grid, and also supplies steam to the airport's central heating and refrigeration plant. The facility currently operates a co-generation plant that consists of: two (2) General Electric LM6000 gas combustion turbines (permitted to fire on natural gas and light distillate fuel oil), each equipped with a supplementary fired duct burner (permitted to fire on natural gas only) and a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG). The cogeneration units are individually vented through two exhaust stacks, which vent emissions from each gas turbine and associated duct burner unit. The facility is also permitted to operate six mid-size boilers for airport terminal production of hot water however, these boilers are activated only in the event of natural gas curtailment or operational issues with existing combustion turbines. The facility also currently operates other sources which are considered exempt from permitting in accordance with 6 NYCRR 201-3.2(c), including one (1) emergency power generator (<500 hours/year), four (4) noncontact water cooling towers and water treatment systems for process cooling water, one (1) storage tank with capacity < 10,000 gallons and two (2) horizontal petroleum storage tanks. No new emission sources or modifications to existing emission units are proposed as part of this permit renewal. With this renewal, the facility will not increase emissions and no changes to capping limits are proposed. Due to changes in EPA and NYSDEC regulations, Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) conditions for NOx and SO2 Trading Programs have been added to the permit and the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) conditions for 6 NYCRR 243, 244 and 245 have been removed from the permit. The draft ATV Renewal 3 permit also adds conditions pertaining to: Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) applicability and 6 NYCRR Part 251 (CO2 Performance Standards for Major Generating Facilities). The draft Title V Renewal 3 permit contains a complete listing of the applicable state and federal laws, rules, and regulations, including emission limits, control requirements and compliance monitoring, testing, recordkeeping and reporting requirements for the facility, its emission units and emission points.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.3(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.
