ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 06/01/2011

Ontario County

Applicant:

CP Holdings Group Inc
26 Maple Ave
Bloomfield, NY 14469

Facility:

Commodore Technology/Plastucs LLC
26 Maple Ave
Bloomfield, NY 14469

Application ID:

8-3226-00023/00029

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

East Bloomfield, Ontario County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application from CP Holdings Group Inc for an initial Title V Facility Permit to authorize operations at its Commodore Technology LLC facility, which manufactures polystyrene foam for food packaging. The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Facility Permit based on the application. The plant meets the definition of a Major Source in 6 NYCRR Part 201‑2.1(b)(21) and is subject to Part 201-6 Title V regulations due to emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in excess of 50 tons per year.

CP Holdings Group also seeks a variance to avoid emission control requirements specified in 6 NYCRR Part 212.10 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) for VOC emissions. The variance proposed would allow operation of 4 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 significantly in excess of the Department's guideline level per ton of emissions controlled. The Department will require re-evaluation of the RACT variance if potential VOC emissions from all sources increase from the current 122.7 tons per year to reach 150 tons per year.

Open cell foam production operations and foam reclamation operations, with higher VOC release rates, will continue to be vented through a thermal oxidizer for VOC emission control.

The application, Draft Title V Facility Permit, RACT Variance request, 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.
