Grace Pacific LLC
325 TPH Hot Mix Asphalt Plant
Located At: Various Temporary Sites, State of Hawaii
Initial Location: Honokohau Quarry, Honokohau, Hawaii
The DRAFT PERMIT is described as follows:
The issuance of CSP No. 0258-01-CT would grant conditional approval to Grace Pacific LLC to continue to operate a 325 ton per hour (TPH) Hot Mix Asphalt Plant. This facility is subject to 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 60, Subpart I – Standards of Performance for Hot Mix Asphalt Facilities. The 1,065 hp diesel engine generator (DEG) is subject to 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart IIII – Standards of Performance for Stationary Compression Ignition Internal Combustion Engines and 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart ZZZZ – National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines. The proposed modification to the plant’s operation is to add cooking oil, biodiesel, grease trap oil, liquid propane gas (LPG), natural gas, renewable natural gas, and synthetic natural gas (SNG) as allowable fuels for the drum mixer burner and hot oil heater. This will result in a net increase in emissions of 0.24, 0.12, 0.09, 0.08, and 2.62 tons per year for CO, PM, PM10, PM2.5, and VOC, respectively. This permit, if issued, will supersede CSP No. 0258-01-C, issued on January 30, 2012, in its entirety.
