FDS Coke Plant PSD Permit Appeal

LMG recently led efforts that successfully prepared and obtained within 90 days a draft PSD permit for the FDS Coke Plant, a 1.44 million ton per year coking operation in Lucas County, Ohio.

This project included characterizing operations and estimating air pollutant emissions from more than 50 different sources.In addition, LMG managed and provided technical oversight of the Top Down Best Available Control Technology (BACT) analysis for the project.

The BACT study included development and successful incorporation of the use of an innovative horizontal coke pushing process into an enclosed quench car controlled with a multiclone. This innovative approach is expected to reduce construction and operating costs associated with controlling pushing air pollutant emissions more than $10 million over the life of the project.

LMG is currently providing ongoing technical assistance regarding an appeal to the Ohio Environmental Review Board (ERB) of the final Permit to Install issued to the US Coking Group, LLC for the FDS Coke Plant. As part of these activities, we have worked with outside counsel to advise senior management on specific technical issues associated with the final PTI and drafted the technical basis for the appeal. LMG is also a key participant in direct discussions with Ohio EPA regarding the key appeal issues.
