University of British ColumbiaUniversity of British ColumbiaGVA1047<div class="ExternalClassD04FE513165344CD84B012BE41FB84F2"> <font style="font-size:13px;"><p>The purpose of this application is to request changes to the authorized discharge of air contaminants from UBC’s combined heating and power facility located at 2337 Lower Mall, Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z4. UBC is currently operating under permit GVA1047.</p> <p>The facility uses renewable & conventional natural gas and clean wood waste (biomass) to generate electricity and thermal energy to heat campus buildings. The request is to remove biomass use from an internal combustion engine (ES03) and replace with natural gas/renewable natural gas mix for better operability and to remove a biomass dryer. In addition to the above, UBC is adding a new 12 MW biomass boiler to provide additional heat and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which they propose be regulated under MVRD Boiler and Heaters Regulation Bylaw No. 1087.</p> </font><p>While the requested emissions under permit GVA1047 decrease, the total proposed facility emissions increase when the 12 MW biomass boiler is included. The potential effects of theproposed emissions on ambient air quality were assessed using a dispersion model in accordance with an approved model plan. The results of this assessment can be found on this website: https://energy.ubc.ca/brdf-permit</p></div>2337 Lower Mall, Vancouver, BC; V6T 1Z4https://www.google.com/maps/place/2337+Lower+Mall,,+Vancouver,,+BC+V6T+1Z4/@49.2602346,,-123.2566755,,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x548672cadc7afc1f:0x8617947d11cdc6d5!8m2!3d49.2602346!4d-123.2544868, https://www.google.com/maps/place/2337+Lower+Mall,+Vancouver,+BC+V6T+1Z4/@49.2602346,-123.2566755,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x548672cadc7afc1f:0x8617947d11cdc6d5!8m2!3d49.2602346!4d-123.2544868Application Under Review<div class="ExternalClassC1DB0D32417A4F38A222CC63AF57A0C8"><h3>​Public Notification </h3><div class="ExternalClass02EBF9ADBB3D4718807F386896A288FF"><div class="ExternalClass9B512F1C97B043BB956AA7B10D28D6B6"><div class="ExternalClass442F111FD440463A9ED15C277513E631"><p>A person who may be adversely affected by the granting of a permit or approval, or by the granting of an amendment to a permit or approval may, within 30 days, notify the District Director in writing stating how that person is affected.  </p><p>When making a decision on the permit or approval application, the District Director will consider the application, comments submitted and any responses provided by the applicant.  If you wish to be notified of the District Director's decision, please provide either a valid email or postal address. </p><h3>Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy</h3><p><span aria-hidden="true"><span style="font-family:calibri, sans-serif;font-size:14.6667px;"></span><span style="font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:13px;">For the project described on this webpage, the information collected by whatever means, such as web form, email or post, during the comment period and the time following until a decision on the permit application has been made is collected by Metro Vancouver in accordance to s.26(c) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
