ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 08/27/2008

Genesee County

Applicant:

Allens Inc
305 E Main St
PO Box 250
Siloam Springs, AR 72761 -0250

Facility:

Allens Inc
Stevens Rd
Oakfield, NY 14125

Application ID:

8-1838-00001/00005

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Oakfield, Genesee County


Project Description:

Allens Inc has submitted an Air State Facility application for its Oakfield Facility, which processes and freezes vegetables. Facility operations are currently regulated by permits to operate individual process emission points, which include conditions to restrict emissions to below Title V thresholds. The Air State Facility application does not propose a change in operations, but will allow the Department to issue a single permit for all facility operations. Emission sources include two 25.1 million BTU per hour boilers, which can be fired by either natural gas or # 6 fuel oil.

As part of this application, Allens Inc seeks to maintain its current emissions below Title V thresholds by limiting facility use of # 6 fuel oil to 840,000 gallons per year to restrict emissions of SO2 to below the 100 ton per year applicability threshold in 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) regulations.

In response, the Department has generated a Draft Air State Facility Permit restricting # 6 fuel oil use to 840,000 gallons per year, on a 12 month rolling total basis. To verify compliance, Allens Inc will be required to maintain records of fuel use and emissions at the facility, to be maintained on site for a minimum of five years, and made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office. The Draft Permit may be viewed or downloaded as a .pdf file at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/dardata/boss/afs/draft_asf.html
