Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Lancaster, Erie County


Project Description:

Moldtech, Inc. produces a variety of innovative custom rubber molded products for industries. This Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this federally enforceable Air State Facility permit which contains emission caps to limit annual potential emissions. The three emission points are paint spray booths where adhesive primers are applied to facilitate the bonding of rubber to metal or plastic. Also on site is a NFPA 86 Class B post curing oven. Under this permit, total Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) are limited to less than 25 tons per year (tpy) and each individual HAP will be limited to less than 10 tpy. Because this facility is also limiting Volatile Organic Compounds to less than 10 tpy, it is not subject to the surface coating requirements of 6NYCRR Part 228. Moldtech is required to annually certify continuous compliance with the emission limits established in this permit.

Niagara County

Applicant:

Occidental Chemical Corp

Dallas, TX 75244

Facility:

Occidental Chemical Corp - Niagara Plant
Buffalo Ave and 47TH St
Niagara Falls, NY 14302 -0344

Application ID:

9-2911-00112/00167

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 TItle 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act

Project is Located:

Niagara Falls, Niagara County


Project Description:

The Department (DEC) has prepared a Draft Permit and made a tentative determination to renew the existing Part 373 Permit for Occidental Chemical Corporation (Occidental)'s Niagara Plant located at Buffalo Avenue and 47th Street in the City of Niagara Falls. The existing Part 373 Permit authorizes Occidental to operate a corrective measures program as the final corrective action remedy, and also to operate a monitoring program to evaluate the effectiveness of the corrective action remedy. Occidental's Niagara Plant occupies approximately 115 acres in a heavily industrialized area along the upper Niagara River in the City of Niagara Falls. The plant employs about 200 people in the manufacture of chemicals. The major products manufactured are chlorine, caustic soda, hydrogen, and Dechlorane Plus, a chlorinated fire retardant. In addition to wastes generated from the manufacturing processes, Occidental also generates non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL) waste from its on-site remedial programs. Occidental does not treat or dispose of hazardous waste on site, nor do they store hazardous waste on site for more than ninety (90) days. Therefore, the proposed Part 373 Permit renewal is for corrective action only to address contamination of soil and groundwater from historic operations by both Occidental and previous owners of the facility. Occidental's Niagara Plant operates under a Part 373 Permit issued on September 22, 2000. That permit expired on February 10, 2005. Occidental submitted the Part 373 Permit renewal application as required in 6 NYCRR 373-1.8 on December 13, 2004. Under the provisions of the State Administrative Procedures Act section 401(2), the current permit is extended until DEC makes a final decision on the renewal application submitted by Occidental. The draft permit is based on the information submitted in the permit application submitted by Occidental on December 13, 2004 and subsequent updates through March, 2007.
