Approval was granted for an Environmental Compliance Approval with Limited Operational Flexibility (Air) which replaces all the current Environmental Compliance Approvals for Air at this facility and will include the addition of new or historically unapproved sources from the Vidal Street Industrial Park Inc., located in the City of Sarnia, Ontario. Vidal Street Industrial Park Inc. is a transloading and warehousing facility.
The approval includes all sources at the facility, including transloading operations of crude oil, diesel, fuel oils, liquefied petroleum gas, caustic and hydrochloric acid; one (1) portable gasoline generator, one (1) flare, one (1) scrubber, maintenance welding, and warehousing. Emissions to the atmosphere from this facility include benzene, methane, ethane, propane, toluene, carbon monoxide, potassium hydroxide, xylene, hydrogen chloride, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter.
The Environmental Compliance Approval with Limited Operational Flexibility (Air) requires that the company demonstrate compliance on an ongoing basis with Ontario Regulation 419/05, applicable Ministry Guidelines for Air and Noise and other performance requirements as specified in their conditions. It permits modifications such as process changes, de-bottlenecking or addition of new equipment subject to limits on operational flexibility that include a production limit for the facility to be specified on the Environmental Compliance Approval with Limited Operational Flexibility (Air). The limited operational flexibility conditions have an expiry date. The company will be required to make application for amendment at that time to renew these conditions.
Of specific public interest, one condition that will be included on the Environmental Compliance Approval with Limited Operational Flexibility (Air) will require the company to make available, at all times, at the facility for inspection by interested members of the Public, a table (Emission Summary Table) that documents the facility's compliance with Ontario Regulation 419/05.
