Marion, NY 14505 -9777

Facility:

Seneca Foods Marion Plant

Application ID:

8-5432-00009/00033

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Marion, Wayne County


Project Description:

Seneca Foods Corporation has submitted an application for renewal of the Title V Facility Permit for its Seneca Foods Marion Plant, a can manufacturing facility located on Mill St in the Town of Marion.

Fruit and vegetable canning operations authorized by the previous Permit, effective September 11, 2006, have been discontinued at this facility. The four canning process boilers have been dismantled and removed. Can manufacturing capacity has been increased with the addition of a third can production line.

The facility remains subject to 6 NYCRR Part 201‑6, Title V Facility Permits for major stationary sources, due to potential emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in excess of 50 tons per year.

In response to the application, the Department has generated a Draft Title V Facility Permit, and has made a tentative determination to send the Draft as a Proposed Permit to EPA for review, if comments received do not raise significant issues that must be addressed.

As in the previous Permit, the Draft Permit includes a condition that will continue to restrict emissions of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) to below the 25 ton per year threshold in 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart KKKK National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants(NESHAP) for Surface Coating of Metal Cans, by requiring documentation that facility coating and solvent use does not cause HAP emissions to exceed 23 tons in any 12 month period.

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. 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.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. Comments and requests for a public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.
