Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Cortlandville, Cortland County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit modification pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and made a tentative decision to approve an application for an Air State Facility Permit for Suit-Kote Corporation's Polkville facility (Polkville Crushed Stone) located at US Route 11, Polkville, NY 13101, Town of Cortlandville. The purpose of the permit modification is to incorporate the following changes to the facility's existing Air State Facility Permit: add existing and new non-metallic mineral processing sources, such as stone crushers and screen; replacement of the existing Barber Green hot mix asphalt plant with a new Stansteel hot mix asphalt plant; add a new steam boiler to heat liquid asphalt and add seven new carbon adsorption vapor control units for odor control.

Suit ‑Kote Corporation's POLKVILLE CRUSHED STONE facility in Cortlandville will consist of (a) wet mining operation, including crushing and screening processes, (b) liquid asphalt bulk storage tanks and loading terminal, (c) Stansteel hot mix asphalt concrete plant, (d) Cedar Rapids batch mix asphalt concrete plant, (e) ERI pug mill and screen, (f) steam boilers and oil fired hot oil heaters for heating bulk asphalt storage tanks and railcars, (g) truck loading racks and (h) polymer modified asphalt production. Emissions from the hot mix and batch mix asphalt concrete plants are controlled by fabric filter (baghouse) collectors. Emissions from storage tanks, loading racks and polymer asphalt production are controlled by carbon adsorption units.

This permit contains facility‑wide federally enforceable emission caps to keep the facility below the following major source thresholds: (a) 50 tpy VOC; (b) 25 tpy aggregate HAP; (c) 10 tpy individual HAP; (d) 100 tpy carbon monoxide, (e) 100 tpy particulate matter (PM); and (f) 100 tpy of sulfur dioxide (SO2). With these federally enforceable emission caps, the facility's potential to emit (PTE) remains below the applicability thresholds of the following regulations: 6 NYCRR Part 201‑6 (Title V permitting), 6 NYCRR Part 212.10 (VOC RACT), and 40 CFR 52.21, Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD).

In addition to the facility‑wide emission caps, emissions from the Stansteel and Cedar Rapids hot mix asphalt plants are regulated by 40 CFR 60, NSPS Subpart I and 6 NYCRR Part 212. Emissions from the ERI pug mill and screen, loading racks, storage tanks, and polymer asphalt production are regulated by 6 NYCRR Part 212. Emissions from the steam boilers and oil fired hot oil heaters are regulated by 40 CFR 60, NSPS Subpart Dc and 6 NYCRR Part 227. Emissions from non-metallic mineral processing are regulated by 40 CFR 60, NSPS Subpart OOO.
