Corning, NY 14831

Facility:

Corning Diesel Manufacturing Facility
890 Addison Rd (ST Rte 417)
Painted Post, NY 14870

Application ID:

8-4642-00108/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Erwin, Steuben County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application from Corning Incorporated for a modification of it's Air State Facility Permit to authorize additional construction at the Corning Inc - Erwin Diesel Facility. The initial Permit, issued March 14, 2002, authorized construction of a new 403,000 square foot manufacturing plant to produce ceramic filters and substrates for diesel engine emission control devices. Due to potential emissions of particulate matter (PM) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) in excess of 100 tons per year each, and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in excess of 50 tons per year, the plant meets the definition of a Major Source in 6 NYCRR Part 201-2.1(b)(21) and is subject to 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 Title V Facility Permits, Part 231 New Source Review (NSR) in Ozone Transport Regions, and 40CFR63 Subpart B maximum achievable control technology (MACT) requirements.
Emission Units include: U-00001, venting rail car and truck unloading and transfer operations, batch silo storage and screening operations, a dry batch mix area, liquid batch unloading, a wet tower mix area, a plugging area, and cutting operations; U-00002, venting volatile organic liquid storage tanks; U-00003, venting extruded ceramic drying operations; U-00004, venting kilns associated with the firing of extruded ceramic ware; and U-00005, venting roof top units, unit heaters, and emergency generators.
A minor modification (Mod 1) issued July 31, 2003, authorized the addition of oil mist eliminator control equipment to reduce particulate emissions of condensed VOC (oil mist) from U-00003 extruded ceramic dryers.
The current application (Mod 2) seeks to authorize a 66,000 square foot expansion adding 2 tunnel kilns (#3 and #4) with oxidizer and scrubber emission controls, a second extruder with dust and oil mist emission controls, a wet tower powderizer bin, saws, and three log dryers, in a new Emission Unit U-00006. Corning also proposes to restrict U-00006 VOC and NOx emissions to 39 tons per year each, below the 40 ton per year significant source project thresholds in Part 231-2.12.
The initial Air State Facility Permit included conditions to restrict facility emissions of: NOx to 99 tons per year, below the 6NYCRR Part 231-2.2 threshold of 100 tons per year; VOC to 122 tons per year, the level of emissions authorized by the emission offsets obtained for this facility pursuant to 6NYCRR Part 231-2.9; and PM to 249 tons per year, below the 250 ton per year threshold for 40CFR 52.21, Subpart A Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) for new facilities in compliance areas.
With the proposed Mod 2: NOx emissions from existing EU U-00001 through U-00005 will remain capped at 99 tons per year. With NOx from new EU U-00006 capped at 39 tons per year, facility total potential to emit will increase to 138 tons per year. VOC emissions from existing EU U-00001 through U-00005 will remain capped at 122 tons per year. With VOC from new EU U-00006 is capped at 39 tons per year, facility total potential to emit will increase to 161 tons per year. PM emissions will remain capped at 249 tons per year.
The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.
