Ontario County

Applicant:

Pactiv Corporation
1900 West Field Ct
Lake Forest, IL 60045

Facility:

Pactiv Corporation
5250 North St
Canandaigua, NY 14424 -1095

Application ID:

8-3224-00108/00116

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Canandaigua, Ontario County

Project Description:

Pactiv Corporation has submitted an application for modification of its Title V Facility Permit issued July 23, 2009, for its Canandaigua Packaging Plant, one of two Title V Permits for Pactiv's Canandaigua operations. Pactiv proposes installation of a new regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) to replace an existing carbon adsorption system, and the addition of facility-level 40 CFR Part 64 Compliance Assurance Monitoring (CAM).

The Packaging Plant is a polystyrene foam production facility, which includes emission points for foam extrusion lines, extrusion line ovens, a pyrolysis oven for extruder die cleaning, a thermal densifier to collapse foam, silicone and plastic coating operations, and material and scrap handling systems. The Plant is subject to 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) regulations due to emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in excess of 50 tons per year.

Pactiv also seeks to maintain a 6 NYCRR Part 212 Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) variance granted by the Department previously. The variance allows operation of foam extruders, thermoforming operations, and foam roll storage without emission controls. The variance is based on low concentrations of slowly released VOC, resulting in costs for emission control in significantly in excess of the Department's guideline level per ton of emissions controlled. Thermal oxidizer control equipment continues to be used for scrap material reclamation processes which release VOC foam expanding agent more rapidly. Total VOC emissions from all Packaging Plant sources will remain limited to 651 tons per year.

Finally, this application also proposes to continue the restriction of material throughput to 5 existing foam extrusion lines to restrict potential VOC emission levels from each line's processes, including scrap reclamation, to below the 40 ton per year threshold of 6 NYCRR Part 231 New Source Review in Ozone Transport Regions.

In response to the application, the Department has prepared a Draft Title V Permit, and has tentatively determined to issue the modified Title V Facility Permit. A separate Title V Facility Permit covers research and development operations at the Technology Center at Pactiv's Canandaigua site.

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. Comments and requests for a public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.
