Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Wallkill, Orange County


Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Title V Permit modification for the Revere Smelting and Refining Corporation pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the federal Clean Air Act Amendments. The modification consist of the installation and operation of a short rotary furnace (SRF). The Revere Smelting & Refining Corporation (Revere) is located in the Town of Wallkill, Orange County, New York.

Modification
: Project proposes operation of a short rotary furnace (SRF) to process slag produced by the existing reverberatory furnace. The SRF is sized to process a maximum of 100 tons per day batch of charge material, lead bearing reverberatory slag and reagants. The SRF is designed to operate a 10MMBTU/hour low NOx burner which fires natural gas as fuel. The burner combines pure oxygen with the natural gas to enhance combustion. Controls supporting the operation of the SRF include a baghouse collector and scrubber. The baghouse collector is required to effectively control particulate and lead emissions. The scrubber is needed to provide sulfur dioxide control efficiency.
Operation of the SRF will eliminate a situation where reverberatory slag generated onsite is shipped (railcar) to sister facilities located in California and Indiana and portion of recovered lead return shipped (railcar/tractor-trailer) to the Revere Smelting & Refining's Ballard Road facility for further refining. The existing reverberatory furnace generates some 1,650 tons of slag per month intended for further processing within the SRF. Past analysis indicate the reverberatory slag contains some 3% sulfur by weight. A low lead content slag will be generated by the SRF which will be sent off site for processing and disposal.
The SRF project anticipates minimal impact to current refinery process elements which include an increase in sodium nitrate (niter) addition and increased natural gas consumption to support the refining kettle operations. These increases are attributable to the quality and mix of the lead refinery product and associated emissions accounted for within permit conditions as appropriate.
Regulatory review consideration associated with the SRF project include but not limited to applicability of Prevention of Significant Deterioration (40CFR Part 52.21), applicability of non attainment New Source Review (6NYCRR Part 231-2), General Process Emission Sources (6NYCRR Part 212), New Source Performance Standards for Secondary Lead Smelters (40CFR Part 60-L) and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants from Secondary Lead Smelting (40CFR Part 63-X).
The Draft permit and Permit Review Report contain a comprehensive description of pollutant limits, monitoring, reporting and recordkeeping requirements associated with the SRF project. The Standard Industrial Classification representative of this facility is 3341 - Secondary Nonferrous Metals. By acceptance of this permit, Revere Smelting and Refining Corporation 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.
