Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located:
The Department has received a request for a permit modification to operate air pollution sources and has drafted, pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, a State Facility Permit Modification, for the facility ELG Utica Alloys Inc located at 91 Wurz Ave, City of Utica in Oneida County, New York. This facility is engaged in the recycling of nickel machine tool turnings. The Standard Industrial Classification representative of this facility is 5093 (Scrap and Waste Materials). With respect to air pollution regulation, the activity of concern at ELG Utica Alloys is degreasing, cleaning and drying operations.
This modification removes an older rotary kiln dryer line and replaces it with a new, more efficient unit. Similarly, a non-halogenated degreasing unit was removed and subsequently replaced. The facility has capped potential nickel oxide and Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions at levels that are below major source thresholds.
The draft permit with all conditions is available for review in the Region 6 NYSDEC sub-office in Utica, NY.
