ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 09/21/2011

Monroe County

Applicant:

Eastman Kodak Co
343 State St
Rochester, NY 14650

Facility:

Kodak Operations at Eastman Business Park
1669 Lake Ave
Rochester, NY 14652

Application ID:

8-2614-00205/01801

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Rochester, Monroe County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application for renewal and modification of the current Title V Facility Permit for Eastman Kodak Company - Kodak Park Operations, has prepared a Draft Permit based on the application, and has made a tentative determination to renew and modify the Title V Facility Permit. Modifications in the Draft Permit include:

A Facility Name Change
Kodak's manufacturing location has been known as Kodak Park and the facility name was Kodak Park Division. Kodak has changed the location name to Eastman Business Park to reflect the location's present use as a multi-tenant industrial park, including some former Kodak operations sold to other operators. The facility name in the Draft Permit has been changed to Kodak Operations at Eastman Business Park to identify those manufacturing operations still owned by Kodak.

Operational Flexibility Changes
These include non-significant changes approved by the Department since the second modification of the current Permit (Mod 2) was issued February 7, 2007.

Emission Unit Changes
Kodak operations which were organized into 56 Emission Units (EU), have been reorganized into 32 EU to reflect equipment shutdowns, sale of various operations, and reorganization of remaining operations.

New 40 CFR Part 64 Compliance Assurance Monitoring (CAM) requirements
A monitoring method to assure continuous compliance is required for sources with control devices subject to an emission limit, with potential (pre-control) emissions equal to or greater than a major facility threshold. The Draft Permit includes new or enhanced monitoring conditions for the pollutants that trigger CAM for processes including: wastewater treatment sludge incineration; organic chemical production; acetate film base production; silver nitrate production, solvent handling, distillation, and storage operations; batch chemical manufacturing; silver recovery operations; thermal media manufacturing; and toner manufacturing operations.

New and Revised Monitoring Requirements to address 40 CFR 63 National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP)
Subpart ZZZZ Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (RICE) NESHAP for the six Kodak engines subject to the rule, Subpart BBBBB Semiconductor Manufacturing NESHAP, Subpart EEE Hazardous Waste Combustor NESHAP for the Multiple Hearth Incinerator, Subpart EEEE Organic Liquid Distribution NESHAP for Distillation operations, Subpart FFFF Miscellaneous Organic Chemical Manufacturing (MON) NESHAP for Distillation and Synthetic Chemical operations, Subpart KK Printing and Publishing NESHAP for Thermal Media operations, Subpart DD Offsite Waste Recovery NESHAP for Kings Landing Wastewater Treatment Facility, Subpart HHHHH Miscellaneous Coatings Manufacturing NESHAP, Subpart JJJJ Paper and Other Web Coating NESHAP, including facility-wide organic HAP limit, and Subpart T Halogenated Solvent Cleaning MACT, including a new facility-wide methylene chloride emission limit, which is the subject of Kodak's June 2, 2010 Request for Equivalent Method of Control Determination currently under EPA review.

Addition of requirements for 6NYCRR Part 228-2 Commercial and Industrial Adhesives, Sealants and Primers
A new emission unit, F-AC004, has been added to the Draft Permit to address new requirements for the use of adhesives and sealants used throughout the facility.

Addition of Thermal Media Manufacturing Operations Emission Unit
EU U-00086 was added to replace an Air State Facility Permit ID 8-2614-00205/01837 that authorized construction and initial operation of thermal media manufacturing operations involving solution preparation, web printing, coating and drying.

Addition of performance test based monitoring requirements for the Silver Recovery Roaster's scrubber system.

Addition of performance test based monitoring requirements for the Distilling West Methanol/Water scrubber.

Elimination of the NSR caps for volatile organic compounds (VOC) and Particulates in EU U-00083
Relocation of manufacturing/assembly and R&D activities from the former Elmgrove Plant to Kodak Park in 2001 triggered New Source Review (NSR) under 40 CFR 52. The relocated sources were permitted under EU U00083 at Kodak Park and subjected to emission unit-wide VOC and Particulate caps to limit the project potential to below significance thresholds for NSR and 6 NYCRR Part 231 requirements. Due to closure or sale of some operations, only eight EU U-00083 emission sources remain subject to these emission caps. Potential emissions from these eight sources are significantly below NSR project thresholds, so NSR emission limits have been removed.

Modification to Permit 3 Machines
EU U-00084 paper and plastic coating operations have been modified in the Draft Permit to allow commercial production on three coating machines which were previously used for research and development only.

New and Revised Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) Evaluations
If an operator can demonstrate that a process cannot achieve the required emission control efficiency for technological or economic feasibility reasons, the Department may accept a lesser degree of control upon submission of sufficient justification. Record keeping is required, with a RACT re-evaluation every five years. All RACT variances are subject to public notice and EPA approval.

The Draft Permit includes new or revised process-specific emission limits for VOC and Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx), precursors of ozone. These processes are subject to RACT requirements to control VOC and NOx emissions in federally enforceable state regulations, 6NYCRR Part 212 General Process Emission Sources, 6NYCRR Part 228 Surface Coating Processes, and 6NYCRR Part 233 Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Manufacturing Processes.

New or revised RACT limits in the Draft Permit include:

New EU U-00086 Thermal Media Manufacturing Operations with a 2.6 ton per year (TPY) VOC RACT limit and an 18.8 TPY NOx RACT limit, as in the permit to construct indicated above.

EU U-00008 Wastewater Sludge Incineration. Based on more recent emissions data and a re-evaluation of NOx reduction options for this source, the Part 212 NOx RACT limit will be reduced from 40.3 to 31.2 tons per year (TPY).

EU U-00084 Pilot Coating Operations. The VOC RACT limit is proposed to be increased from 12 to 35 TPY, due to expected production increases. This includes EP 308B7 solution preparation and affiliated operations with a Part 212 VOC RACT limit previously at 12 TPY, and a newly applicable Part 228 (Surface Coating) VOC RACT evaluation for the coating machine venting through EP 308B5. EU U-00084 will be limited to 35 TPY of VOC emissions from operations subject to both Part 212 and Part 228 VOC RACT. A re-evaluation of RACT demonstrated that no additional process changes, reformulations, or add-on control devices are available that are both technically and economically feasible.

EU U-00063 Silver Recovery Operations. After installation of a new scrubber system on the Roaster, separate emission points (EP) were established for the Roaster and Smelter. EP 10101, which previously vented emissions from both the Roaster and Smelter, was decommissioned. The Part 212 NOx RACT cap for the Silver Recovery Roaster (EP 101A2) is 10.5 TPY NOx in the Draft Permit, based on the most recent emission data and re-evaluation of NOx reduction options. This limit replaces the previous 25.5 TPY limit on combined emissions from both the Roaster and Smelter. NOx emissions from the Smelter alone are less than the 3 pound per hour applicability threshold for RACT.

EU U-00053 West Chemicals and EU U-00060 North Chemicals. The requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 233 Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Manufacturing Processes have been added to allow for production of synthetic chemicals for pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. Operations subject to Part 233 VOC RACT would be conducted on existing equipment which is currently subject to Part 212 VOC RACT requirements. Emissions from Part 233 operations at West Chemical (Bldg 325) and North Chemicals (Bldg 301-304) will be included under existing Part 212 VOC caps of 66 TPY and 150 TPY, respectively, based on RACT demonstrations that no additional process changes, reformulations, or add-on control devices are available that are both technically and economically feasible.

RACT Limits removed since original Title V Permit issued:

These include RACT variances totaling 189.31 TPY VOC and 81.4 TPY NOx emissions removed from the Draft Permit due to operations which have been discontinued, reduced to below RACT thresholds, transferred to another company's operations, or are now RACT compliant due to installation of controls or other compliance methods.

Other RACT limits totaling 108.75 TPY VOC remain unchanged in the Draft Permit.

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.
