PUBLIC NOTICE


Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality
Air Quality Division

Notice is given to the public, according to Chapter 14 of Nebraska Administrative Code Title 129 - Nebraska Air Quality Regulations, that the Department is proposing to issue a construction permit for Midwest Renewable Energy (FID# 34651) an ethanol manufacturing plant to produce denatured ethanol. (Standard Industrial Classification code 2869) located at 27532 West Highway 30 in Sutherland, Lincoln County, Nebraska. The anticipated change in emissions of regulated air contaminants in tons per year (tpy) due to the proposed Significant Revision at this facility will be: 11.90 tpy of Particulate Matter (PM); 8.33 tpy of PM ≤ 10 microns (PM10); 5.00 tpy PM ≤ 2.5 microns (PM2.5); 48.17 tpy Volatile Organic Compounds.


Lincoln County meets the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for those pollutants subject to a NAAQS and is expected to continue in that status. No impact is anticipated on habitat for any rare or threatened species.

The Department proposes to issue a construction permit with specific conditions, based on Title 129, which limits the HAP and VOC emissions; requires the use of a Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS); and specifies recordkeeping and reporting requirements

The proposed permit and supporting materials are available Thursday, June 15, 2017 through Monday, July 17, 2017 at the NDEQ, Suite 400, 1200 "N" Street, Lincoln, Nebraska, and electronically at http://deq.ne.gov.

During this period the applicant, or any interested person or group of persons, may request or petition the Director for a public hearing. The request must be in writing and state the nature of the issues to be raised and all arguments and factual grounds supporting their position. If a public hearing is granted by the Director, the hearing will be advertised by public notice at least 30 days prior to the hearing.
