Mahoning Renewable Energy


  1. Name of the facility:
    Mahoning Renewable Energy
    
  2. Location:
    12003 Oyster Rd., Alliance, Ohio  44601  Mahoning County
    
  3. Distance from the US/Canada border:
    Approximately 100 km
    
  4. Type/size of the facility:
    Two 535 mmBtu/hr refuse-derived fuel stoker boilers, refuse 
    handling, ash handling, grinders, roadways and parking 
    areas and a 66 MW gross (58 MW net) steam turbine generator.
    
  5. Source of emissions:
    Two 535 mmBtu/hr refuse-derived fuel stoker boilers
    
  6. Type of fuel:
    Refuse-derived fuel processed from municipal solid waste and 
    construction and demolition debris
    
  7. Type and quantity of emission increases:
    BAT emission limitations under OAC rule 3745-31-05(A)(3) for each boiler:
    
     - 0.5 ppm of hydrogen fluorides (HF)
     - 15.0 ppm of ammonia

    Annual emissions from this emissions unit shall not exceed any of the following: - 35.0 tons/year of particulate matter (PM)/particulate matter less than 10 microns in diameter (PM10) - 0.30 ton/year of lead - 81.5 tons/year of sulfur dioxide (SO2) - 31.3 tons/year of hydrogen chloride (HCl) - 0.00013 ton/year of dioxins/furans - 292.0 tons/year of nitrogen oxides (NOx) - 261.5 tons/year of carbon monoxide (CO) - 12.2 tons/year of sulfuric acid - 0.040 ton/year of cadmium - 0.07 ton/year of mercury - 0.60 ton/year of hydrogen fluorides - 16.1 tons/year of ammonia

    BACT emission limitations under OAC rule 3745-31-10 through 20 for each boiler:

    - PM/PM10 shall not exceed 20 milligrams per dry standard cubic meter, corrected to 7 percent oxygen (this limit is identical to Subpart Eb below).

    - Lead emissions shall not exceed 140 micrograms per dry standard cubic meter, corrected to 7 percent oxygen (this limit is identical to Subpart Eb below).

    - SO2 emissions shall not exceed 24 parts per million by volume or 20 percent of the potential SO2 emission concentration (80-percent reduction by weight or volume), corrected to 7 percent oxygen (dry basis), whichever is less stringent. This shall be based on a 24 hour averaging time as specified in 60.58b(e) (this limit is more stringent than Subpart Eb below).

    - HCl emissions shall not exceed 25 parts per million by volume or 5 percent of the potential HCl emission concentration (95-percent reduction by weight or volume), corrected to 7 percent oxygen (dry basis), whichever is less stringent (this limit is identical to Subpart Eb below).

    - Dioxin/furan total mass emissions shall not exceed 13 nanograms per dry standard cubic meter (total mass), corrected to 7 percent oxygen (this limit is identical to Subpart Eb below).

    - NOx emissions shall not exceed 75 parts per million by volume, corrected to 7 percent oxygen (dry basis). This shall be based on a 24 hour averaging time as specified in 60.58b(h) (this limit is more stringent than Subpart Eb below).

    - CO emissions shall not exceed 150 parts per million by volume, corrected to 7 percent oxygen (dry basis). This shall be based on a 24 hour averaging time as specified in 60.53b(a) (this limit is identical to Subpart Eb below).

    - Sulfuric acid emissions shall not exceed 2.0 parts per million by volume corrected to 7 percent oxygen (dry basis).
  8. Emission control technology
