ENB Region 7 Completed Applications 07/02/2008

Broome County

Applicant:

Endicott Interconnect Technologies Inc
1093 Clark St
Endicott, NY 13760

Facility:

Endicott Interconnect Technologies Inc
1093 Clark St
Endicott, NY 13760

Application ID:

7-0346-00032/00209

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Union, Broome County

Project Description:

The Department (DEC) has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for renewal of an existing Title V permit for Endicott Interconnect Technologies in Endicott, NY. This action also includes a tentative decision to approve EIT's application to use toluene in one of its coating processes. The National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Printing, Coating and Dyeing of Fabrics and Other Textiles, found at 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart 0000, will apply. EIT manufactures electronic components such as multi-layered printed circuit boards. EIT also makes the pre-preg backing for these circuit boards. In making printed circuit boards, electrical circuits are etched onto individual sheets of copper-coated fiberglass reinforced plastic panels known as laminate, and these sheets are laminated together to form multi-layered boards. Processes that emit pollutants include surface preparation, plating, etching, and other processes. The major emitting process at EIT is the application of a coating to a fiberglass mat to make the backing on which the printed circuits reside. The coatings used contain either methyl ethyl ketone or toluene, two organic compounds that are driven off in drying ovens. These pollutants are destroyed in thermal oxidizer control devices.

A power house supplies steam to the Huron campus. This power house is being incorporated into a separate Title V permit to be issued to Huron Real Estate Associates in a separate action. A recycling operation previously identified in EIT's permit is being incorporated into a separate state facility permit for IBM.

The Title V permit is issued for a period of five years.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(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.

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. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/32249.html.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. Comments and requests for a public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Union, Broome County

Project Description:

The Department (DEC) has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for a new State Facility permit for IBM Corporation's Huron Campus operations. IBM owns and operates equipment in two of the campus buildings, Nos. 38 and 46. The processes operated by IBM were previously included in a Title V permit issued to Endicott Interconnect Technologies and were identified in the emission unit ASSET. The associated emission sources are being removed from EIT's permit and a separate permit is being issued to IBM. No new equipment is being added; this action reflects a change in who is controlling the devices.

The Asset Recovery Center (ARC) dismantles outdated computer systems/peripherals and segregates components to optimize recycling and reuse opportunities. There are nine emission points and nineteen emission sources. The largest emitters include three paint booths that coat miscellaneous metal and plastic parts. Actual VOC emissions are under 5 tons per year. The painting is subject to 6 NYCRR Part 228.

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Union, Broome County

Project Description:

The Department (DEC) has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for a new Title V permit for Huron Real Estate's central utility plant. Huron owns and operates four fossil-fuel fired boilers that provide steam to the Huron campus in Endicott, NY. Boilers 1, 2 and three have a rated heat input capacity of about 149.2 million Btu/hr, and Boiler 4 has a rated heat input of 156.1 million Btu/hr. The boilers will be permitted to burn number 2 oil and natural gas. The boilers are classified as "large" boilers under the DEC's NOx regulation that implements Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT). In addition to meeting NOx RACT, the boilers are also subject to restrictions on fuel sulfur and annual fuel oil use.

This central utility plant previously was permitted in Endicott Interconnect Technology's Title V permit. All of the permit conditions that were applicable to the boilers in EIT's permit have been carried over to Huron's permit. No new equipment is being added.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(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.
