The renewal and proposed modification of Temporary CSP No. 0406-01-CT would grant conditional approval for the continued operation of an existing 60 TPH portable drum mix asphalt concrete plant. The facility consists of a 60 TPH portable drum mixer/dryer, 209 kW (prime) diesel engine generator, cold aggregate bin, 40 ton storage silo and conveyor system. The drum mixer/dryer is equipped with a venturi scrubber for the control of particulate matter emissions, and is subject to the federal standard 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart I, Standards of Performance for Hot Mix Asphalt Facilities. The diesel engine generator is subject to the federal standards of 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart IIII, Standards of Performance for Stationary Compression Ignition Internal Combustion Engines and 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart ZZZZ National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines. The proposed modification consists of replacing the existing 225 kW diesel engine generator with a 209 kW diesel engine generator. The proposed modification to replace the existing 225 kW diesel engine generator with a 209 kW diesel engine generator will not result in a net emissions increase. This permit, if issued, shall supersede CSP No. 0406-01-C issued on May 1, 2003.
