ENB - Region 9 Notices 10/24/2012

Negative Declaration

Chautauqua County - The Town of Sheridan Zoning Board of Appeals, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Nulife Glass CRT Recycling Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by Nulife Glass Processing Ltd to establish a processing facility for cathode ray tubes (CRTs) which are required to be recycled under State and Federal law.

The heart of the facility is a unique electrically heated furnace where leaded CRT glass is melted under strictly controlled conditions to release metallic lead from the glass matrix. The lead falls to the base of the furnace where it is removed and is sold into the secondary lead market. The purity of the lead is typically not less than 99%. The de-leaded glass exits the furnace and is quenched to form glass aggregate suitable for use in the manufacture of construction products.

The facility will be located on an industrial site that is currently unoccupied and the commissioning will consist of 3 stages:

1) Carry out site clearance and remedial works to bring the existing buildings back to working condition (estimate 1 month).
2) Begin to bring in CRT glass for temporary storage and install a system to separate the leaded glass from the lead free glass (estimate 8 months from start of project).
3) Install our furnace and begin to melt CRT glass and recover metallic lead (estimate 14 months from start of project)

The facility will not require a SIDF Permit as New York State is due to be issuing an enforcement discretion policy adopting the federal CRT Rule which excludes CRTs from the RCRA definition of solid waste.

The project is located on Middle Road in the Town of Sheridan, New York.

Wyoming County - The Town of Warsaw Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 2012 Amendments to the Town of Warsaw Zoning Law and Zoning Map will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a discovery by the Town of Warsaw, that after working with and applying its zoning law, the zoning law has several shortcomings and inconsistencies and it has been determined that the zoning law needs to be amended to clarify some of its contents. The project is located throughout the Town of Warsaw, New York.
