ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 10/06/2010

Monroe County

Applicant:

Xerox Corporation
45 Glover Ave
Norwalk, CT 06850 -1600

Facility:

Xerox Joseph C Wilson Ctr for Technology
800 Phillips Rd
Webster, NY 14580

Application ID:

8-2654-00064/01201

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Webster, Monroe County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application from Xerox Corporation for an Air State Facility Permit to authorize expansion of its Emission Aggregate (EA) Toner production operations at its Joseph C Wilson Center for Technology in the Town of Webster (Webster Facility). Xerox proposes to install and start production with a new third reactor line in its EA Toner Plant in Building 216.

Continued operation of the expanded source and current facility operations will be authorized by the Title V Facility Permit, currently in the process of renewal by the Department, which will be the subject of a separate public notice.

The Xerox Webster Facility is subject to 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) due to potential emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), total particulate matter (PM) in excess of 100 tons per year, volatile organic compounds (VOC) in excess of 50 tons per year, total hazardous air pollutants (HAP) in excess of 25 tons per year, and the individual HAP methylene chloride in excess of 10 tons per year.

It is also an Existing Major Facility as defined in 40 CFR 52.21 Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and 6 NYCRR Part 231 New Source Review (NSR) for New and Modified Facilities. It is subject to PSD and NSR Subpart 231-6 for Modifications to Existing Major Facilities within the Ozone Transport Region due to emissions of NOx in excess of 250 tons per year, and is subject to PSD and NSR Subpart 231-8 for Modifications to Existing Major Facilities in Attainment Areas due to potential emissions of SO2 and total PM in excess of 250 tons per year each.

Xerox has proposed to restrict potential emissions of total PM, PM smaller than 10 microns (PM-10), and PM smaller than 2.5 microns (PM-2.5) on the entire EA Toner process, including current and expanded operations, to below the Significant Emissions Increase applicability thresholds of PSD and NSR Subpart 231-8. Total PM, PM-10, and PM 2.5 potential emissions will be restricted to less than 25, 15, and 10 tons per year respectively, based on limited material throughput and process emission rates. Actual total PM emissions from the expanded EA Toner production operations are anticipated to be less than 1 ton per year.

Expanded EA Toner production VOC emissions have the potential to slightly exceed the 15 pound per day Part 212.10 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) applicability threshold. Xerox has proposed to restrict expanded EA Toner production VOC emissions to 6 tons per year based on material throughput and process emission rates.

With maximum VOC emissions of 6 tons per year, Xerox has provided a RACT analysis establishing control costs ranging from approximately $9,500 to over $30,000 per ton of VOC emissions controlled, depending on the control method evaluated. This is significantly higher than the current Department guideline level for economic feasibility of approximately $5,000 per ton of VOC emissions controlled. Based on the cost of control, the level of emissions for the process as proposed, and the nature of the process which can not be feasibly modified, the Department has determined that the expansion of EA Toner production meets the requirements of VOC RACT without VOC emission controls.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.

Steuben County

Applicant:

Paul R Barron

Facility:

Mustafa Pit
West Caton Rd - S Side - N of Spencer Hill Rd
West Caton, NY

Application ID:

8-4634-00005/00003

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Caton, Steuben County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application from Paul R. Barron to resume operation of a 4.37 acre sand and gravel mine, known as the Mustafa Pit, on an 8.5 acre property owned by Syed A. Mustafa. The Mustafa Pit was previously operated by William Duell from 1998 until 2008. The mine site is located on the south side of West Caton Road, north of County Route 40A, just east of where these roads intersect. Mining operations at the site will be resumed as previously permitted, with excavation by mechanical equipment. Material processing consisting of screening will also be resumed at the site.

Mining operations are proposed to remove an additional 30,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel over the remaining operational life. The applicant has estimated truck traffic from hauling operations to be a maximum of 20 trucks per hour, and to average 10 to 12 trucks per hour.

Mining is not proposed to a depth below the local water table. Cross sections show grades that will retain storm water runoff within the mined area and allow infiltration into the soil. No off site discharges are proposed. There are no NY State regulated streams or freshwater wetlands within the Life of Mine area.

Hours of operation proposed are 6 AM to 6 PM, Monday through Friday, and 6 AM to noon on Saturday, with no operations Sundays or holidays. Final reclamation to vegetated land is proposed, and will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil and seeding with an approved mixture.

The application is available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office, and a copy of the application materials has been sent to the Town of Caton.
