Wolverine Power Supply Cooperative


  1. Name of the facility:
    Wolverine Power Supply Cooperative
    
  2. Location:
    Rogers City, Presque Isle County, MI 
    
  3. Distance from the US/Canada border:
    about 50 km
    
  4. Type/size of the facility:
    Installation of 600 MW solid fuel-fired power plant at 
    existing Oglebay Norton quarry property
    
  5. Source of emissions:
    Boilers
    
  6. Type of fuel:
    Primary Fuel:
      • Mainly Powder River Basin coal (low sulfur) with a blend of up 	
      to 70% by Btu of petroleum coke (pet coke). Also coal from 
      Canada and other US regions, if desired.

    Secondary fuel: • 100% Illinois Basin coal (high sulfur content) On the basis of annual energy consumption, up to 20% by Btu biomass will be burned as supplementary fuel.
  7. Type and quantity of emission increases:
    NOx: 
      • 0.07 lb/MMBtu (30-day avge) during normal operation -         
      excluding periods at SSM -  at loads greater than or equal to 70% load 
      • 0.14 lb/MMBtu ( 30-day rolling avge)  during low load         
      operation, loads less than 70% load but greater than 50% 

    SO2: • 0.06 lb/MMBtu (30-day avge) during normal operation, excluding periods at SSM at loads greater than or equal to 70% load • 0.05 lb/MMBtu as an annual avge during normal operation; • 0.08 lb/MMBtu (30-day avge) during low load operation, excluding periods at SSM at loads less than 70% load but greater than 50% load • 0.10 lb/MMBtu (3-hr rolling avge) during normal operation low load operation, excluding periods at SSM at loads less than 70% load but greater than 50%

    Filterable PM10: 0.010 lb/MMBtu

    CO: 0.15 lb/MMBtu (30-day avg)

    VOC: 0.0035 lb/MMBtu

    H2SO4: 0.006 lb/MMBtu
  8. Emission control technology
    NOx:  combustion control with overfire air + SNCR
    SO2:  In situ SO2 capture followed by a polishing scrubber
    PM:   in bed acid gas control for the condensable SO3, HCl and     
          fluorides, followed by a fabric filter  
    CO:   good combustion practices
    VOC:  good combustion practices
    H2SO4:  fabric filter
    
    
  9. Date permit application received:
    9/26/2007
    
  10. Stack height and diameter:
    N/A
