Section 1: Detailed Permit Analysis and Air Permit Application
(A)Permit AnalysisThe most important consideration in the facility design is the environmental impact thisfacility may impose onto its immediate and surrounding communities and these impactsare also directly related to the ability of the facility permitting.The most critical environmental permitting is the stack emission permit, in fact, the entirefacility design from material management to power generation is based on the ability toreceive air emission permit which has to be applied under the regulation and ruling of Ohio State and US Federal EPA.This proposed facility is to designed not just for City of Cleveland but also an operatingmodel to be installed nationwide. Therefore, the air borne impurities control process wasdesigned not just for permit application but with the best possible status can be achievedby selected technologies.The following are the facility and equipment design summaries of air permit applicationsubmitted to Ohio EPA on March 19
, 2011 which shall provide the facility layout,gasification system design and air emission level in comparison with existing N.E. Ohiolevel,
Cleveland Public Power Ridge Road MSW Gasification HRSG ProjectOverview of Air Permit Application and Basis for ApprovalSteering Committee Meeting – Tuesday, March 8, 2011Criteria for Approval of the Air Permit Application:
(1)The proposed project must be equipped with the Best Available Technology (BAT)for air pollutant emissions control; and(2) The emissions from the project must result in acceptable air quality impact.
