REQUEST FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS
ON DRAFT AIR PERMIT
REGULATING THE EMISSIONS OF AIR POLLUTANTS
(Docket No. 20-CA-PA-02)
Pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), Chapter 342B-13 and Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), Chapter 11-60.1, the Department of Health, State of Hawaii (DOH), is requesting public comments on the following DRAFT PERMIT presently under review for:
Covered Source Permit (CSP) No. 0380-03-C
Application for Renewal and Significant Modification No. 0380-06
Maui Paving, LLC
174 TPH Drum Mix Asphalt Plant
Located At: 10 Manawainui Bridge, Maunaloa Highway, Hoolehua, Molokai
The DRAFT PERMIT is described as follows:
The issuance of CSP No. 0380-03-C will grant conditional approval to Maui Paving, LLC, for the continued operation of an existing 174 TPH drum mix asphalt plant. Proposed modifications include conversion of the temporary CSP to a regular (non-temporary) CSP, revision of the permit limit to a production rate limit from an hourly annual operation limit, and the addition of specification (spec) used oil as an alternative fuel for the drum mixer burner. The inclusion of spec used oil potentially increases estimated hazardous air pollutant emissions of acetaldehyde by approximately 680 pounds per year. Fugitive emissions from aggregate handling and processing are controlled by water suppression techniques and emissions from the drum mixer dryer are controlled by the use of a baghouse.
The drum mix asphalt plant is subject to 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 60, Subpart I, Standards of Performance for Hot Mix Asphalt Facilities. The 610 HP diesel engine generator 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. This permit, if issued, will supersede Temporary CSP No. 0380-02-CT issued on April 28, 2014, in its entirety.
The ADMINISTRATIVE RECORD, consisting of the APPLICATION and non-confidential supporting material from the applicant, the permit review summary, and the DRAFT PERMIT, is available online at http://health.hawaii.gov/cab/public-notices/.
