PERMIT NAME: Major Source Construction Permit issued by DEQ , under the authority of the Air Pollution Control Board

APPLICANT NAME AND REGISTRATION NUMBER: Potomac Supply LLC, Registration Number 40371

FACILITY NAME AND ADDRESS: Potomac Supply LLC, 1398 Kinsale RD., Kinsale, VA

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Potomac Supply LLC has applied for a permit to construct a project at their lumber processing facility in Kinsale, VA. The proposed project would allow them to construct and operate a new drying kiln. The facility is classified as a major source of air pollution. The maximum annual emissions of air pollutants from the new kiln are expected to be: 258 tons of VOC, 86 tons of CO, 9 tons of NOx, 8 tons of PM10, and 8 tons of PM2.5. The applicant proposes to use bark and sawdust for fuel in the new kiln. The technology that will be used to control the air pollution from the new project is an electrostatic precipitator to control PM, overfire air to control NOx, and proper operation of the drying kiln to control VOC. The estimated effect on air quality near the facility from the proposed project was examined using EPA ozone modeling (for NOx and VOC) and the predicted ozone concentration in the vicinity of the facility was found to comply with the 8-hour ozone NAAQS.
