Applicant:

Facility:

Lafarge North America Inc - Buchanan

Application ID:

3-5522-00087/00019

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Cortlandt, Westchester County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this application for the Applicant's facility located in Buchanan, Westchester County, New York.

This is a renewal of an existing Title V permit. This renewal includes minor administrative changes. The facility produces bulk gypsum and wallboard. Gypsum rock is delivered to the facility by water borne vessel. Raw, reclaimed gypsum material, and synthetic gypsum material can be stockpiled or sent directly to processing.

The first step in the process is the crushing of the raw, reclaimed gypsum material and synthetic gypsum to reduce the maximum rock size. The material then proceeds to the calcining mill, where the free and chemically-bound water is removed.

The product of the calcining mill, called stucco, is then pneumatically conveyed to the wallboard plant. Here the stucco is conveyed to the pin mixer. Depending upon the type of wallboard being produced, appropriate additives, including water, are mixed with the stucco in the pin mixer to produce a slurry. The slurry is extruded between two sheets of paper on the forming line. While traveling down the length of the forming line, the slurry hardens into wet wallboard. At the end of the forming, the wet wallboard is cut into varying lengths and is inverted to protect the face of the board during drying.

Finally, the boards are conveyed through the board dryer to drive off moisture and induce chemical bonding of the wallboard ingredients. The wallboard is finished with end saws and the exposed ends are sealed with tape. The wallboard is then stored until shipment off site.

Applicable regulations include 6NYCRR Part 200, 201, 202, 211, 212, 215, 227, 40 CFR 60-OOO, 65-UUU, 64, 68, 82-F.

By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201. The USEPA tracks Title V petition deadlines; a link to the EPA Region 2 website is http://www.epa.gov/region02/air/permit/title The Region 2 contact's telephone number and address for petition deadline inquires are available at this website.

The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dar/boss/afs/index.html. Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below. It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files. The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within two (2) business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory. A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment. DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists. If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments. The applicant and all persons who have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing. Comments and requests for a legislative public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.

An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination. An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

Filed application documents, and Department draft permits where applicable, are available for inspection under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Law during normal business hours at the address of the contact person.
