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.

35-00069A: Lackawanna Energy Center LLC (1 South Wacker Drive, Suite 1900, Chicago, IL 60606) 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 35-00069A: Lackawanna Energy Center LLC (1 South Wacker Drive, Suite 1900, Chicago, IL 60606) for the purposes to construct, own, and operate a natural gas-fired combined-cycle power plant to produce a nominal 1,500 MW of electricity in Jessup Borough, Lackawanna County and is soliciting comments on the above plan approval.

 The project consists of three (3) identical 1 x 1 power blocks. Each combined-cycle process block includes one (1) General Electric Model 7HA.02 natural gas fired combustion turbine (CT) and one (1) heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) with duct burners (DB) with all three (3) blocks sharing one (1) steam turbine.

 The 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.

 Additionally, one (1) 2,000 kW diesel-fired emergency generator, one (1) 315 HP diesel-fired emergency fire water pump, one (1) 184.8 MMBTUs/hr natural gas fired boiler, one (1) 12 MMBTUs/hr natural gas fuel gas heater, two (2) diesel storage tanks, three (3) lube oil storage tanks, and one (1) aqueous ammonia storage tank are proposed to be constructed and operated.

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

 The PSD regulations require specific sources of air pollution, such as the proposed project, 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 Lackawanna Energy Center, 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 Lackawanna Energy Center LLC 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 147.50
PM 73.10
SO2 39.90
NOx 304.60
CO 273.90
VOC 76.00
H2SO4 31.2
Total Hazardous (HAPs) 22.80

 As shown in the table above Lackawanna Energy Center 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, Lackawanna Energy Center 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 304.6 1.15 350.3
VOC 76.0 1.15 87.4

 In accordance with the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) rules in 40 CFR 52.21 and 25 Pa. Code § 127.83, Lackawanna Energy Center LLC has conducted an air quality analysis which utilizes dispersion modeling. Lackawanna Energy Center's air quality analysis satisfies the requirements of the PSD rules and is consistent with the U.S. 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), Lackawanna Energy Center's air quality analysis demonstrates that the proposed emissions from Lackawanna Energy Center's facility would not cause or contribute to air pollution in violation of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for carbon monoxide (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). Lackawanna Energy Center's air quality analysis demonstrates that the proposed emissions from Lackawanna Energy Center's facility would 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 Lackawanna Energy Center's facility is provided in the following tables:
