The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality is taking comment until May 26 on a draft air permit amendment that would let George Mason University-Fairfax Campus install a new natural gas/distillate oil-fired boiler.
The permit would allow the source to operate the new boiler and other existing gas/distillate oil-fired boilers and emergency diesel engine-driven generators. This is a new boiler at the Central Heating and Cooling Plant, which already has four other gas/oil-fired boilers. The campus is in the Washington DC area.
The permitting covers one natural gas/distillate oil-fired boiler, Victory Energy model HT-25-400, rated at 30.62 million Btu/hr (on gas) and 28.99 million Btu/hr (on oil).
