ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 04/04/2012

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:

8-2614-00205/01827

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 modification of the Title V Facility Permit issued March 13, 2009 for the Eastman Kodak Company - Eastman Business Park Boilers. The Kodak Boilers generate steam and electricity to support Kodak manufacturing activities, and are operated by SUEZ-Duke Energy Generation Services of Rochester (SDEGS) under a Title V Permit which is separate from the Title V Permit for Kodak manufacturing activities.

In response to the application, the Department has generated a Draft Modified Title V Facility Permit, and made a tentative determination to issue the Modified Permit.
The proposed modification is based on the Department's determination that the coal fired Kodak Boilers 41, 42, and 43 are subject to 6 NYCRR Part 249 Best Available Retrofit Technology. Part 249 regulations restrict emissions of visibility-impairing pollutants by requiring installation of Best Available Retrofit Technology (BART) on sources identified under the rule, to reduce regional haze and restore natural visibility conditions.

To comply with Part 249 BART regulations, Kodak has submitted an evaluation of Boilers 41, 42, and 43, with a plan that the Department has accepted as meeting Part 249 requirements, and included in conditions in the Draft Modified Permit.

The plan includes: The permanent shutdown of Boiler 41 by December 31, 2013; Either the permanent shutdown of Boiler 42, or conversion of Boiler 42 from coal fired to natural gas fired, by the compliance date specified in the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) under 40 CFR 63 Subpart DDDDD, but no later than August 16, 2017; and the installation of emission control equipment on Boiler 43, sufficient to meet requirements of 40 CFR 63 Subpart DDDDD Boiler and Process Heater NESHAP.

In addition, Kodak's boilers are subject to the 40 CFR 64 Compliance Assurance Monitoring (CAM) rule with respect to Part 227-1 particulate emission limits. The Draft Modified Permit includes CAM requirements for particulate emissions from Boilers 41 and 44, similar to those for Boilers 42 and 43 included in modifications authorized in January 2007. The CAM requirements for Boilers 41 and 44 were derived from testing conducted in 2009 to establish opacity limits, and specify opacity monitoring as a surrogate parameter for Part 227-1 particulate limits. Opacity will be measured with a continuous monitoring system to verify compliance with particulate standards for each of the large coal boilers.

Also, new conditions have been added to the Draft Modified Permit for record keeping to demonstrate compliance with 40 CFR 63 Subpart DDDDD Boiler and Process Heater NESHAP requirements, and the 6 NYCRR Part 243 Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) NOx Ozone Season Trading Program.

Finally, conditions for the 6 NYCRR Part 204 NOx Budget Rule, which has been repealed, have been eliminated.

The application, Draft Permit, 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.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below.

Steuben County

Applicant:

Corning Inc

Corning, NY 14831

Facility:

Erwin Manufacturing Complex
792 Addison Rd - South Hamilton Rd
Painted Post, NY 14870

Application ID:

8-4642-00009/00109

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Erwin, Steuben County


Project Description:

Corning Inc has submitted an application for renewal and modification of its current Title V Facility Permit for the Erwin Manufacturing Complex. The facility manufactures ceramic filter substrates for catalytic emission control units for gasoline and diesel engines.

The facility meets the definition of a Major Source in 6 NYCRR Part 201-2.1(b)(21)(i) and is subject to Part 201-6 requirements for a Title V Facility Permit due to potential emissions of total particulate matter (PM), particulates smaller than 10 microns (PM-10), particulates smaller than 2.5 microns (PM-2.5),and carbon monoxide (CO), in excess of 100 tons per year each, and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in excess of 50 tons per year.

After the modification of the Title V Facility Permit effective September 4, 2008 to authorize additional production equipment, the facility also meets the definition of a Major Source in Part 201-2.1(b)(21)(v) for applicability of Part 231 Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) requirements due to potential emissions of PM, PM-10, and PM-2.5 greater than 250 tons per year each.

Facility Emission Units include:

U-00001, venting capped Cook and Light Duty Diesel ceramic filter production line processes with emission limits unchanged from the initial Title V Permit; U-00002, venting uncapped Cook and Light Duty Diesel ceramic filter production operations; and U-00005, venting processes which may alternate between exempt research and development operations, and non-exempt production operations.

Proposed changes from the current permit as modified effective September 4, 2008 include:

Addition of a new Emission Unit U-00006, consisting of 2 diesel and 3 natural gas powered emergency generators, two 14.6 million BTU per hour natural gas fired boilers, and a diesel powered fire pump engine; Addition of a new Emission Unit U-00007, consisting of additional ceramic filter forming and finishing lines; and Addition of a new Emission Unit U-00008, consisting of two oil storage tanks.

As part of this application, Corning has proposed to limit emissions of PM, PM-10, and PM-2.5 from the new Emission Unit U-00007 ceramic filter forming and finishing lines to below the Part 231-8 Significant Project Thresholds of 25, 15, and 10 tons per year respectively. Emissions are to be calculated monthly, with emissions remaining below the thresholds for any 12 consecutive month period.

Corning has also proposed to maintain its current facility‑wide limit on Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) emissions with restrictions on operations that will limit emissions of hydrogen chloride to 9.9 tons per year, and total emissions of all HAP combined to 24.9 tons per year, below the 40 CFR Part 63 Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) major source thresholds of 10 tons per year for any individual HAP and 25 tons per year for all HAP combined.

In response to the application, the Department has generated a Draft Title V Facility Permit, and has made a tentative determination to issue the Draft as a Final Permit, if comments received do not raise any significant issues.

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

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.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/32249.html.
