Applicant:

Arch Chemicals Inc

Norwalk, CT 06856

Facility:

Arch Chemicals Inc
100 McKee Rd
Rochester, NY 14611

Application ID:

8-2614-00344/00307

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Rochester, Monroe County


Project Description:

In response to an application submitted by Arch Chemicals Inc, the Department has prepared a Draft Title V Permit and has made a tentative determination to renew the Title V Facility Permit for chemical production operations at the Arch Chemicals Inc - Rochester Facility. The facility synthesizes industrial and agricultural chemicals and intermediates.

The Facility meets the definition of a Major Source in 6 NYCRR Part 201-2.1(b)(21), and is required to obtain a Title V Facility Permit as specified in Part 201-6, due to potential emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in excess of 50 tons per year, and potential emissions of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) in excess of 25 tons per year.

Changes in the Draft Permit from the initial Title V Permit issued October 26, 2001 reflect reductions in potential HAP emissions including removal of processes emitting the HAP compounds carbon tetrachloride and hexane, the removal of 7 Emission Units with processes discontinued or determined to be exempt from permitting requirements, and the addition on one new emission unit for emission control equipment for unloading chlorine from tank cars. Other process changes result in emissions authorized in the Draft Title V Permit being reduced compared to the initial Title V Permit. HAP emitted at reduced rates include methanol, chloroform, hydrochloric acid, and chlorine.
Other contaminants include particulates, oxides of nitrogen, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide from facility boilers, and fugitive emissions from pretreatment of the facility's wastewater.

22 Emission Units are grouped into "Areas" which include processes involved in production of related compounds. Among the end uses of the chemical products produced are personal care products, biocides and preservatives.

A-Area: Consists of 8 Emission Units exhausting ventilation systems for personnel around reactors and solids handling equipment, solids drying systems, organic and inorganic chemical storage tanks, wastewater storage tanks, process reaction equipment, filtration system ventilation, and solvent recovery systems. B-Area: Consists of 9 Emission Units exhausting ventilation systems for personnel around reactors and chemical handling equipment, organic and inorganic chemical storage tanks, wastewater storage tanks, and distillation equipment for organic compound recovery. C-Area: Consists of 2 Emission Units exhausting synthetic chemical production and process reaction equipment, a ventilation system for reactor filling and emptying, chemical storage tanks, and solids handling equipment. D-Area: Consists of 3 Emission Units exhausting distillation operations, reactor and chemical handling ventilation systems, process equipment, waste water storage and treatment equipment, chemical storage tanks, and solids handling equipment.

A 23rd Emission Unit includes the facility's two 22.15 million BTU per hour natural gas fired boilers which can also burn #2 fuel oil as a backup.

The application, Draft Title V Facility Permit, and Permit Review Report are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed or downloaded as .pdf files at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/dardata/boss/afs/draft_atv.html

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.
