Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Ellicott, Chautauqua County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve a modification to the existing Air State Facility Permit and prepared a draft permit for the facility which manufactures fused cast refractory.

The baghouse associated with the mold making slab and carousel line, emission point (EP) 0037A, will be replaced with a new and more efficient baghouse. The emission factor for particulate matter less than 10 micrometers in diameter (PM-10) from EP 0037A was changed from 0.83 lb/hr to 0.42 lb/hr in the PM-10 capping condition. The permit continues to limit PM-10 emissions to 80 tons for each rolling 12 month period in order to avoid Title V permitting requirements. This is the only modification to the permit.

This permit modification does not change the emission caps on oxides of nitrogen (NOx) or hexavalent chromium.

Availability of Application Documents:

Filed application documents, and Department draft permits where applicable, are available for inspection during normal business hours at the address of the contact person. To ensure timely service at the time of inspection, it is recommended that an appointment be made with the contact person.
