AIR QUALITY

PLAN APPROVAL AND OPERATING PERMIT APPLICATIONS

 The Department has developed an ''integrated'' plan approval, State Operating Permit and Title V Operating Permit program. This integrated approach is designed to make the permitting process more efficient for the Department, the regulated community and the general public. This approach allows the owner or operator of a facility to submit permitting documents relevant to its application for all sources related to a facility or a proposed project, affords an opportunity for public input, and provides for a decision on the issuance of the necessary permits.

 The Department received applications for Plan Approvals or Operating Permits from the following facilities.

 Copies of the application, the Department's analysis, all pertinent documents used in the evaluation of the application and subsequently prepared proposed plan approvals/operating permits are available for public review during normal business hours at the appropriate Department Regional Office. Appointments for scheduling a review must be made by calling the appropriate Department Regional Office. The address and phone number of the Regional Office is listed before the application notices.

 Persons wishing to file a written protest or provide comments or additional information, which they believe should be considered prior to the issuance of a permit, may submit the information to the Department's Regional Office. A 30-day comment period from the date of this publication will exist for the submission of comments, protests and information. Each submission must contain the name, address and telephone number of the person submitting the comments, identification of the proposed Plan Approval/Operating Permit including the permit number and a concise statement regarding the relevancy of the information or objections to issuance of the permit.

 A person wishing to request a hearing may do so during the 30-day comment period. A public hearing may be held, if the Department, in its discretion, decides that a hearing is warranted based on the information received. Persons submitting comments or requesting a hearing will be notified of the decision to hold a hearing by publication in the newspaper, the Pennsylvania Bulletin or by telephone, when the Department determines this type of notification is sufficient. Requests for a public hearing and any relevant information should be directed to the appropriate Department Regional Office.

 Permits issued to the owners or operators of sources subject to 25 Pa. Code Chapter 127, Subchapter D or E, or located within a Title V facility or subject to 25 Pa. Code § 129.51(a) or permits issued for sources with limitations on their potential to emit used to avoid otherwise applicable Federal requirements may be submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency for review and approval as a revision to the State Implementation Plan. Final Plan Approvals and Operating Permits will contain terms and conditions to ensure that the sources are constructed and operating in compliance with applicable requirements in the Air Pollution Control Act (35 P. S. §§ 4001—4015), 25 Pa. Code Chapters 121—145, the Federal Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C.A. §§ 7401—7671q) and regulations adopted under the Federal Clean Air Act.

 Persons with a disability who wish to comment and require an auxiliary aid, service or other accommodation to participate should contact the regional office listed before the application. TDD users may contact the Department through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at (800) 654-5984.

Contact: Raymond Kempa, New Source Review Chief—Telephone: 570-826-2507

40-00129A: Moxie Freedom LLC (612 Center Street South, Vienna, VA 22180). Notice is hereby given under 25 Pa. Code § 127.44 and 40 CFR 52.21, that the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) intends to issue the proposed Air Quality Plan Approval 40-00129A for Moxie Freedom LLC (Permittee), (612 Center Street South, Vienna, VA 22180) for the proposes to construct, own, and operate a natural gas-fired combined-cycle power plant in Salem Township, Luzerne County and is soliciting comments on the above plan approval.

 The Project will consist of two identical 1 x 1 power blocks, each consisting of a combustion gas turbine (CT) and a steam turbine (ST) configured in single shaft alignment, where each CT and ST train share one common electric generator. The turbine to be used for this project are Two General Electric (GE) 7HA.02 CTs, each in 1 x 1 single shaft combined-cycle power islands.

 Duct burners (DB) will be installed in the heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) of the proposed new units. Each CT and duct burner will exclusively fire pipeline-quality natural gas. The HRSGs will be equipped with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to minimize nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions and oxidation catalysts to minimize carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from the CTs and DBs.

 The Project will also include several pieces of ancillary equipment. The list of equipment includes:

 One fuel gas dew-point heater—natural gas fired, common for all CTs

 Two CT inlet evaporative coolers—one for each CT (not emissions sources)

 Two air-cooled condensers—one for each HRSG (not emissions sources)

 One auxiliary boiler, natural gas-fired

 One diesel engine powered emergency generator

 One diesel engine powered fire water pump

 Diesel fuel, lubricating oil, and aqueous ammonia storage tanks

 The proposed facility will be a ''major source'' of criteria air pollutants. Moxie Freedom is applying to the Department for a Plan Approval addressing Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) review and non-attainment New Source Review (NSR).

 The Project, Moxie Freedom Generation Plant, once fully operational will have the capability to produce 1,050 Mega Watts (MW) of electricity which will then be distributed to the power grid for use.

 The PSD regulations require specific sources of air pollution, such as the proposed Moxie Freedom Generation Plant, to satisfy four conditions before approval to construct and operate may be granted by DEP. First, all pollutants that are subject to this regulation must be controlled by best available control technology (BACT). Second, particulate and sulfur dioxide (SO2) air pollutant emissions must not cause violations of the allowable annual, 24-hour, or 3-hour air quality class increments applicable in the area where the source is to be located; nor any class increments applicable in any other areas which would be impacted by the source. Third, the maximum allowable increase in concentrations of all pollutants must not cause violation of either the national primary or secondary ambient air quality standards. Finally, the pollutant emissions from the proposed source must not adversely impact upon soils, vegetation, and visibility in the vicinity of the proposed plant site.

 A preliminary review of the information submitted by Moxie Freedom, LLC indicates that the construction and operation of the plant will meet all applicable air quality requirements including the four stated above. Based upon these findings, DEP plans to approve the application and issue a permit for the construction and operation of the Moxie Freedom Generation Plant.

 The following table summarizes the potential emissions from maximum operation of the facility according to the application submitted for the Department's own analysis;

Pollutant Emission limit Tons/year
PM10 118.00
TSP 118.00
SO2 33.00
NOx 215.00
CO 218.00
VOC 78.00
Fluoride 6.30
Total Hazardous (HAPs) 15.30

 As shown in the table above Moxie Freedom LLC proposed project potential emissions of NOx and VOC exceed the NNSR major source thresholds. NNSR requirements for NOx and VOC include Lowest Achievable Emission Rate (LAER) and purchasing Emission Reduction Credits (ERC). In accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 121.1, LAER is defined as:

 (i) The rate of emissions based on the following, whichever is more stringent:

 (A) The most stringent emission limitation which is contained in the implementation plan of a state for the class or category of source unless the owner or operator of the proposed source demonstrates that the limitations are not achievable.

 (B) The most stringent emission limitation which is achieved in practice by the class or category of source.

 (ii) The application of the term may not allow a new or proposed modified source to emit a pollutant in excess of the amount allowable under an applicable new source standard of performance.

 In accordance with 25 Pa. Code §§ 127.205(4) and 127.210, Moxie Freedom LLC will be required to purchase ERCs to offset the NOx and VOC emission increases associated with this project at a ratio of 1.15:1. Based on the PTE, the following table represents the required ERCs to be purchased:

ERC Calculation

Pollutant PTE Ratio ERCs
NOx 214 1.15 246.1
VOC 77.9 1.15 89.6

 In accordance with the PSD rules in 40 CFR 52.21 and 25 Pa. Code § 127.83, Moxie Freedom LLC (Moxie Freedom) has conducted an air quality analysis which utilizes dispersion modeling. Moxie Freedom's air quality analysis satisfies the requirements of the PSD rules and is consistent with the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Guideline on Air Quality Models (40 CFR Part 51, Appendix W) and the EPA's air quality modeling policy and guidance.

 In accordance with 40 CFR 52.21(k), Moxie Freedom's air quality analysis demonstrates that the proposed emissions from Moxie Freedom's facility will not cause or contribute to air pollution in violation of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for CO, nitrogen dioxide (NO2), particulate matter less than or equal to 2.5 micrometers in diameter (PM-2.5), or particulate matter less than or equal to 10 micrometers in diameter (PM-10). Moxie Freedom's air quality analysis demonstrates that the proposed emissions from Moxie Freedom's facility will not cause or contribute to air pollution in violation of the increments for NO2, PM-2.5, or PM-10. The degree of Class II and Class I increment consumption expected to result from the operation of Moxie Freedom's facility is provided in the following tables:

48-00021A: Northampton Generating Co LP (1 Horwith Drive, Northampton, PA 18067). Notice is hereby given under 25 Pa. Code §§ 127.44(b)(5) and 127.424, that the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) is soliciting comments on the proposed Air Quality Plan Approval 48-00021A for Northampton Generating Co LP (NGC) (the Permittee), 1 Horwith Drive, Northampton, PA 18067 to revise their permit limit for lead emissions (Pb) from their circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler located in Northampton Borough, Northampton County as described in the Permittee's October 16, 2014 Plan Approval Application and any other subsequent supplemental submissions.

 Plan Approval No. 48-00021A is for the revision of permit limit for lead emissions (Pb) to address the variability of lead (Pb) content in fuel inherent with the multiple coal refuses piles that the plant currently uses in their circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler. The company has sampled and tested approximately 21 refuse coal piles for lead content in order to determine the base line for lead. The results were varied, ranging from 4.3 ppms to 140 ppms. NGC has used 140 ppms (highest lead found in the sample) in re-developing the lead emissions limit. Based on these sampling and findings the company has requested the Department to revise the lead (Pb) limit, when burning Tire Derived Fuel (TDF), from 0.0027 pounds per hour to 0.0588 pounds per hour. A Health Risk Assessment Model was provided to justify the revised lead emissions limit. No other operational changes were proposed by the company.

 The Department's Central Office Air Quality staff reviewed the Health Risk Assessment results and concluded that for the increased lead emissions (0.0588 lb/hr = 0.00742 g/sec), the cancer risks for the baseline and TDF scenarios is 1.22 E-06. The non-cancer risks for the baseline and TDF scenarios have gone up slightly to 0.14 and 0.19, respectively, which are still below the acceptable level of 0.25.

 Based on 8,760 hour per year operation and maximum of 140 ppm of lead content in coal refuse, following potential emissions are expected from the boiler.

 Pb—0.258 Ton/year

 No other emissions changes are expected due to this change from the facility.

 Persons wishing to provide the Department with additional information, which they believe should be considered prior to the issuance of the Plan Approval, may submit the information to the address shown below. The Department will consider any written comments received within 30 days of the publication of this notice. Each written comment must contain the following: name, address and telephone number of the person submitting the comments; identification of the proposed Plan Approval No. 48-00021A and a concise statement regarding the relevancy of the information or any objections to the issuance of the Plan Approval.

 A public hearing will be held for the purpose of receiving comments on the proposed air quality plan approval. The hearing will be held on Tuesday, June 30, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. at the Northampton Community Center, located at 1601 Laubach Avenue, Northampton, PA 18067.

40-00129A: Moxie Freedom LLC (612 Center Street South, Vienna, VA 22180). Notice is hereby given under 25 Pa. Code § 127.44 and 40 CFR 52.21, that the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) intends to issue the proposed Air Quality Plan Approval 40-00129A for Moxie Freedom LLC (Permittee), (612 Center Street South, Vienna, VA 22180) for the proposes to construct, own, and operate a natural gas-fired combined-cycle power plant in Salem Township, Luzerne County and is soliciting comments on the above plan approval.

 The Project will consist of two identical 1 x 1 power blocks, each consisting of a combustion gas turbine (CT) and a steam turbine (ST) configured in single shaft alignment, where each CT and ST train share one common electric generator. The turbine to be used for this project are Two General Electric (GE) 7HA.02 CTs, each in 1 x 1 single shaft combined-cycle power islands.

 Duct burners (DB) will be installed in the heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) of the proposed new units. Each CT and duct burner will exclusively fire pipeline-quality natural gas. The HRSGs will be equipped with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to minimize nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions and oxidation catalysts to minimize carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from the CTs and DBs.

 The Project will also include several pieces of ancillary equipment. The list of equipment includes:

 One fuel gas dew-point heater—natural gas fired, common for all CTs

 Two CT inlet evaporative coolers—one for each CT (not emissions sources)

 Two air-cooled condensers—one for each HRSG (not emissions sources)

 One auxiliary boiler, natural gas-fired

 One diesel engine powered emergency generator

 One diesel engine powered fire water pump

 Diesel fuel, lubricating oil, and aqueous ammonia storage tanks

 The proposed facility will be a ''major source'' of criteria air pollutants. Moxie Freedom is applying to the Department for a Plan Approval addressing Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) review and non-attainment New Source Review (NSR).

 The Project, Moxie Freedom Generation Plant, once fully operational will have the capability to produce 1,050 Mega Watts (MW) of electricity which will then be distributed to the power grid for use.

 The PSD regulations require specific sources of air pollution, such as the proposed Moxie Freedom Generation Plant, to satisfy four conditions before approval to construct and operate may be granted by DEP. First, all pollutants that are subject to this regulation must be controlled by best available control technology (BACT). Second, particulate and sulfur dioxide (SO2) air pollutant emissions must not cause violations of the allowable annual, 24-hour, or 3-hour air quality class increments applicable in the area where the source is to be located; nor any class increments applicable in any other areas which would be impacted by the source. Third, the maximum allowable increase in concentrations of all pollutants must not cause violation of either the national primary or secondary ambient air quality standards. Finally, the pollutant emissions from the proposed source must not adversely impact upon soils, vegetation, and visibility in the vicinity of the proposed plant site.

 A preliminary review of the information submitted by Moxie Freedom, LLC indicates that the construction and operation of the plant will meet all applicable air quality requirements including the four stated above. Based upon these findings, DEP plans to approve the application and issue a permit for the construction and operation of the Moxie Freedom Generation Plant.

 The following table summarizes the potential emissions from maximum operation of the facility according to the application submitted for the Department's own analysis;

Pollutant Emission limit Tons/year
PM10 118.00
TSP 118.00
SO2 33.00
NOx 215.00
CO 218.00
VOC 78.00
Fluoride 6.30
Total Hazardous (HAPs) 15.30

 As shown in the table above Moxie Freedom LLC proposed project potential emissions of NOx and VOC exceed the NNSR major source thresholds. NNSR requirements for NOx and VOC include Lowest Achievable Emission Rate (LAER) and purchasing Emission Reduction Credits (ERC). In accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 121.1, LAER is defined as:

 (i) The rate of emissions based on the following, whichever is more stringent:

 (A) The most stringent emission limitation which is contained in the implementation plan of a state for the class or category of source unless the owner or operator of the proposed source demonstrates that the limitations are not achievable.

 (B) The most stringent emission limitation which is achieved in practice by the class or category of source.

 (ii) The application of the term may not allow a new or proposed modified source to emit a pollutant in excess of the amount allowable under an applicable new source standard of performance.

 In accordance with 25 Pa. Code §§ 127.205(4) and 127.210, Moxie Freedom LLC will be required to purchase ERCs to offset the NOx and VOC emission increases associated with this project at a ratio of 1.15:1. Based on the PTE, the following table represents the required ERCs to be purchased:

 ERC Calculation

Pollutant PTE Ratio ERCs
NOx 214 1.15 246.1
VOC 77.9 1.15 89.6

 In accordance with the PSD rules in 40 CFR 52.21 and 25 Pa. Code § 127.83, Moxie Freedom LLC (Moxie Freedom) has conducted an air quality analysis which utilizes dispersion modeling. Moxie Freedom's air quality analysis satisfies the requirements of the PSD rules and is consistent with the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Guideline on Air Quality Models (40 CFR Part 51, Appendix W) and the EPA's air quality modeling policy and guidance.

 In accordance with 40 CFR 52.21(k), Moxie Freedom's air quality analysis demonstrates that the proposed emissions from Moxie Freedom's facility will not cause or contribute to air pollution in violation of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for CO, nitrogen dioxide (NO2), particulate matter less than or equal to 2.5 micrometers in diameter (PM-2.5), or particulate matter less than or equal to 10 micrometers in diameter (PM-10). Moxie Freedom's air quality analysis demonstrates that the proposed emissions from Moxie Freedom's facility will not cause or contribute to air pollution in violation of the increments for NO2, PM-2.5, or PM-10. The degree of Class II and Class I increment consumption expected to result from the operation of Moxie Freedom's facility is provided in the following tables:
