ENB Region 6 Completed Applications 06/13/2007

St Lawrence County

Applicant:

Newton Falls Fine Paper Company LLC
875 Co Rte 60
Newton Falls, NY 13666

Facility:

Newton Falls Paper Manufacturing Plant
875 Co Rte 60
Newton Falls, NY 13666

Application ID:

6-4026-00001/00047

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

St Lawrence County

Project Description:

This Department has received a request for a permit modification to operate air pollution sources and has drafted pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, a Title V Facility Permit Modification, for the facility located at Newton Falls Fine Paper Company LLC, Town of Clifton, St. Lawrence County, New York. This facility is engaged in the manufacture of paper. The Standard Industrial Classification representative of this facility is 2621, Paper Mills.

This permit allows for the operation of 2 boilers that combust #6 fuel oil (Emission Unit 4-COMBU), 2 paper machines (Emission Unit 1-PAPER), 1 off-machine paper coater with associated dryer sections (Emission Unit 1-OFFMC), and a coating preparation area for mixing and storage of coatings and chemicals (Emission Unit 1-PREPA).

The facility has potential emissions of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) above the major source thresholds.

The facility has a restriction on the amount of sulfur dioxide (883 tons) that it can emit during any consecutive 12 month period. This limit was placed on the facility in order to avoid the requirements of 40 CFR 52.21, Prevention of Significant Deterioration. The boilers (Emission Unit 4-COMBU, Emission Sources BCU01 & BCU02) are subject to the NOx RACT (Reasonably Available Control Technology) requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 227-2, for mid-size boilers. The paper making operations (Emission Unit 1-PAPER) have limits on the amount of VOC emitted during any 12 month period (28.7 tons for paper machine #3, Emission Source PAPM3 & 28.2 tons for paper machine #4, Emission Source PAPM4). These limits were placed on the paper machine emissions to allow them to operate under a variance from the requirements of VOC RACT contained in 6 NYCRR Part 212, General Process Emission Sources. The paper coating operations (Emission Unit 1-OFFMC) are subject to the VOC RACT requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 228, Surface Coating Processes.

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 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 2 business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. through 4:45 p.m.), unless the requester 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 a 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 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 exist. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department's web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Part 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the 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. After the public comment period, the USEPA will be provided a proposed permit and will have an additional 45 day period for review. If USEPA does not raise any objection, the Department will issue the permit.

The application and Draft Title V Facility Permit are available in the Region 6 NYSDEC office in Watertown, New York.

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.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

St Lawrence County

Project Description:

The Department has received a request for a permit to construct and operate air pollution sources and has drafted pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, a State Facility Permit, for the facility located at Sheehan Asphalt Plant Potsdam, Town of Potsdam, St. Lawrence County, New York. This facility is engaged in the production of asphaltic concrete utilized in paving projects. The Standard Industrial Classification representative of this facility is 2951, Paving Mixtures and Blocks.

This permit allows for the construction and operation of a 300 ton per hour Barber-Greene asphaltic concrete batch plant, rotary aggregate dryer with baghouse, two liquid asphalt storage tanks (15,000 and 10,000 gallons), aggregate hoppers and conveyor, a 665 horsepower Caterpillar diesel engine/generator, and a 15,000 gallon fuel oil storage tank.

The facility has accepted a limit on the quantity of asphaltic concrete that it can produce during any consecutive 12 month period. Additionally the facility has accepted a limit on the number of hours that the Caterpillar diesel generator can operate during any consecutive 12 month period. By accepting these limitations the facility emissions for Carbon Monoxide (CO), Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), Particulate Matter less than 10 microns (PM-10), Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) will be less than their respective major source thresholds. The facility must meet the sulfur in fuel oil limits of 6 NYCRR Part 225-1, the opacity and particulate emission limits of 6 NYCRR Part 212, and the New Source Performance Standards for Hot Mix Asphalt Facilities of 40 CFR 60 Subpart I, in addition to the operating limits mentioned above.

The draft permit with conditions is available for review in the Region 6 NYS DEC office in Watertown, New York.
