NY Identifies Issues in Crypto Mine Air Permit Dispute


Sep 26, 2023
A New York State Administrative Law Judge issued a Ruling on Greenidge Generation’s appeal of the Department of Environmental Conservation’s denial of the operation’s Title V Air Permit. The ruling finds that Greenidge Generation’s operations are inconsistent with and will interfere with the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions limits of New York’s Climate Law (the CLCPA), as the DEC found in June 2022

The environmentalists consider this a victory for New York and for the climate, since they assure that the communities that live near this fossil energy plant that mines cryptocurrencies are affected and that said plant pollutes 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.

The New York State Administrative Law Judge's ruling on Greenidge Generation's appeal is seen as a significant win for both the state and the environment. It underscores the importance of upholding greenhouse gas emission limits set by the Climate Law, addressing concerns about the impact on nearby communities and continuous pollution from the fossil energy plant involved in cryptocurrency mining.
