Notice has been given that:
Proximity Malt, LLC, requests a permit to construct one (1) Kice Industries Model CK-30 cyclone to control particulate emissions from the roasting equipment at their 33222 Bi State Boulevard facility in Laurel, within Sussex County. The cyclone is being installed to reduce particulate matter (PM) emissions from the roasting equipment, and is expected to have an efficiency at or above 60% for particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of less than or equal to 10 microns (PM10). As such, potential emissions are expected to decrease from 1.15 to 0.46 pounds of PM10 per hour and from 5.02 to 2.01 tons of PM10 per year. The roaster and associated cyclone will be tested to determine new emission limitations, but will be limited to emit less than 0.2 grains of PM per dry standard cubic foot by Permits: APC-2019/0063, 0064, 0065, & 0066-CONSTRUCTION (Amendment 2)(PM2.5 BACT)(VOC BACT) until the test results are available.
