Erie County

Applicant:

Engineered Composites Inc
55 Roberts Rd
Buffalo, NY 14206

Facility:

Engineered Composites Inc
55 Roberts Ave
Buffalo, NY 14206

Application ID:

9-1402-00773/00005

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Buffalo, Erie County


Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application for an Air State Facility Permit and prepared a draft permit for Engineered Composites, Inc. which produces fiberglass reinforced plastic parts by closed molding processes, including compression molding and resin transfer (vacuum infusion) molding.

Facility emissions consist of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), including styrene and n-hexane, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and particulates. A significant increase in production at Engineered Composites Inc. (ECI) has caused an increase in emissions. This project consists of the addition of several emission sources, including three closed molding presses, two batch mixers and a grinding operation and the conversion of ECI's permit from an Air Facility Registration Certificate to an Air State Facility Permit with a cap on individual and total HAP emissions of 9.90 tpy and 24.5 tpy, respectively. The Company's voluntary capping of emissions means they are not subject to the requirements of 6NYCRR201-6, Title V and 40CFR63, Subpart WWWW, Reinforced Plastic Composites Production. To comply with 6NYCRR211.1 Pollution Prohibited, ECI must maintain Building B-001 as a total enclosure to capture fugitive emissions in accordance with USEPA Reference Method 204 and make changes to the ventilation system to enhance the dispersion of styrene emissions. ECI is also subject to the requirements/ limits specified under 6NYCRR212.4(c) and 6NYCRR212.6(a) for particulates and opacity, respectively.

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.
