Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a modification to the Title V Air Facility Permit for the operation of the Buckeye Terminals, LLC Albany Terminal facility located at 301 Normanskill St. in the Port of Albany, City of Albany, Albany County.

The modified permit would authorize the offloading of crude oil at the facility via its marine loading dock. The existing vapor combustion unit (VCU) at the dock will control Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emissions to 98% by weight efficiency. The facility recalculated its emission profile utilizing throughput caps and emission control limits to maintain emission levels at previous permitted levels. The facility also has also ceased naphtha storage and shipment operations in conjunction with the modification.
The facility is major for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Also the facility is not applicable to 40 CFR 63, Subpart R because the facility is not major for Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP). The facility is subject to 40 CFR 63, Subpart BBBBBB the area source NESHAP.

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.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Coeymans, Albany County


Project Description:

Lafarge Building Materials, Inc. has applied for a modification to their existing State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit (NY 000 5037), to extend the effective dates for final effluent thermal limits at Outfall 003 and the effective date for final effluent limits at Outfall 023. The effective date will be extended from October 1, 2012 to December 31, 2013. Modifying the effective dates are based on the most current design and schedule for the modernized facility and will advance the planned elimination of Outfall 003 by approximately two years, minimizing overall water quality and thermal impacts to Coeymans Creek.

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a SPDES modification under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation Law. This tentative determination indicates that the discharge regulated under this statute is considered to satisfy regulatory standards for permit issuance, based on information available to the Department at this time. As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance. As such, this tentative determination does not signify Department approval for or endorsement of the activity for which a permit is sought.

Lafarge Building Materials facility is located approximately one mile west of the Hudson River, east of U.S. Route 9W, south of Old Ravena Road, and north of the Village of Ravena, in the Town of Coeymans, Albany County, New York. The facility is approximately 2.25 miles north of the intersection of NYS Route 143 and Route 9W.
