ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 06/20/2012

Monroe County

Applicant:

American Packaging Corp
777 Driving Park Ave
Rochester, NY 14613 -1541

Facility:

American Packaging Corp
777 Driving Park Ave
Rochester, NY 14613

Application ID:

8-2614-00117/00038

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Rochester, Monroe County


Project Description:

The Department has received an application to renew the Title V Facility Permit last renewed September 11, 2006, and modified effective January 12, 2009, for the American Packaging Corporation ‑ Rochester Facility, which manufactures specialty printed paper and plastic film packaging for the food industry. The facility meets the definition of a major facility in 6 NYCRR Part 201‑2.1(b)(21), and is subject to Part 201‑6 (Title V) regulations due to current potential facility emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) of over 250 tons per year.

Facility operations include extrusion, ozone treatment, and printing operations in Emission Unit (EU) A‑00001, flexographic and rotogravure packaging printing and coating operations using solvent based and water based inks in EU A‑00002, and a newer extrusion laminating and coating line, with ozone substrate treatment, in EU A‑00003.

The application for renewal includes a revised Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) evaluation, seeking to maintain a RACT variance from the requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 228 Surface Coating and Part 234 Graphic Arts regulations, for operation of EU A-00002 solvent based ink printing and coating process without VOC emission controls.

The revised RACT evaluation seeks uncontrolled VOC emissions of 54 tons per year based on a cost of control in excess of the Department's guideline of $5000 per ton of emissions controlled. The VOC RACT variance limit in the current Permit is 57.4 tons per year.

In response to the application, the Department has generated a Draft Title V Renewal Permit for review and has made a tentative determination to renew the Title V Facility Permit.

The Draft Permit maintains the current 200 ton per year VOC emission limit for Emission Unit A‑00001.

EU A-00003 potential VOC emissions remain limited to 35 tons per year, below the 40 ton per year VOC increase threshold in 6 NYCRR Part 231‑2 New Source Review in Ozone Transport Regions. This limit was established when the addition of EU A-00003 was authorized in the modification effective January 12, 2009.

The application, Draft Permit, RACT Evaluation, 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

Facility:

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Wheatland, Monroe County


Project Description:

Waste Management of New York LLC has submitted an application for renewal and modification of its current Title V Facility Permit for the Monroe Livingston Sanitary Landfill. The landfill accepted waste from 1965 until 1989, and has controlled landfill gas emissions due to decomposition by a combination of internal combustion generator engines and an enclosed flare.

The landfill met the definition of a Major Source in 6 NYCRR Part 201-2.1(b)(21) and was subject to Part 201-6 requirements for a Title V Facility Permit due to potential emissions of carbon monoxide (CO) in excess of 100 tons per year from landfill gas combustion.

The Title V Facility Permit issued August 23, 2006 was modified July 18, 2008 to reflect the permanent shutdown of Engine #1, one of four 1138 horsepower landfill gas powered generator engines, and the certification of Emission Reduction Credits due to that shutdown of 11 tons per year of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and 3.48 tons per year of volatile organic compounds (VOC).

Since that modification of the Title V Facility Permit, production of landfill gas has decreased sufficiently to reduce potential CO emissions from generator engines to below the 100 ton per year threshold.

Waste Management has proposed changes from the current permit as modified July 18, 2008 to include permit conditions to prohibit further operation of Engine #3, which was shut down May 5, 2010.

In response to the application, the Department has generated a Draft Title V Facility Permit with conditions prohibiting further operation of Engine #3, and intends to certify additional Emission Reduction Credits of 15 tons per year of NOx, and 3.5 tons per year of VOC in accordance with 6 NYCRR Part 231-10 Emission Reduction Credits.

The application, Draft Title V Facility Permit, and Permit Review Report are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office. The Draft Title V Facility Permit and the Permit Review Report may be viewed or downloaded as .pdf files at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/dardata/boss/afs/draft_atv.html

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Reading, Schuyler County


Project Description:

U S Salt Corp has submitted an application for renewal of its Title V Facility Permit for its Watkins Glen Refinery, located on Salt Point Road in the Town of Reading. The facility produces and packages salt from nearby brine production operations, and emits air contaminants from salt dewatering, drying, processing, and packaging operations, from three natural gas and oil fired process boilers, and from a newer 240 million BTU per hour fluidized bed boiler, which can be fired by any combination of coal, wood, or natural gas. The Title V Facility Permit was originally issued November 2, 2000 and was renewed effective October 11, 2006.

The Watkins Glen Refinery meets the definition of a major stationary source in 6 NYCRR Part 201-6, and is required to maintain a Title V Facility Permit, due to potential emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOX), sulfur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO), total particulate matter (PM), and particulate matter less than 10 microns (PM‑10), of over 100 tons per year each.

As part of the application, U S Salt also proposes to continue to limit total fuel use by the four boilers, to restrict potential NOX, SO2, CO, and PM-10 emissions to below 6NYCRR Part 231-2 New Source Review (NSR) and 40 CFR 52.21 Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) increase thresholds of 100 tons per year for CO, 40 tons per year for NOX and SO2, and 15 tons per year of PM-10. These limits were established with the addition of the newest boiler authorized by the 2006 Permit renewal, and restricted total facility boiler emissions to 128.6 tons of NOX, 136.6 tons of CO, and 36.3 tons of SO2 per year.

In response to the application, the Department has generated a Draft Title V Facility Permit for renewal, and has made a tentative determination to issue the Draft Permit as the Renewed Permit, if comments received do not raise significant issues which must be addressed.

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
