A midstream petroleum products company wanted to reactivate operations at a terminal that was not operational and had air quality permits that were been terminated over six years prior. In order to initiate operations at the facility, several physical modifications were needed, and the facility was required to reapply for air quality construction permits.
Blackstone prepared uncontrolled and controlled emissions calculations for all operations at the terminal, including seven tanks storing transmix, gasoline, diesel, and ethanol. Emissions calculations for tanks were prepared with the TankESP software tool. Blackstone reviewed regulatory applicability of New Source Performance Standards for the storage tanks (40 CFR 60 Subpart Kb) and loading rack (40 CFR 60 Subpart XX), National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants 40 CFR 63 Subpart BBBBBB for the bulk terminal, and Wisconsin state regulations. Appropriate Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources application forms were also prepared. An Air Pollution Control Construction Permit and Federally Enforceable State Operating Permit were received within two months from the date of application submission.
