Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a modification to an Air State Facility Permit for the Stiefel Laboratories, Inc., facility on Route 145 in East Durham, Greene County, New York.

Stiefel Laboratories, Inc. is an existing facility that manufactures and packages dermatological products and oral care products (i.e., toothpaste), and performs research and development activities. As part of a change in operations, the facility is continuing its transition from a dermatological manufacturing site to a facility which manufactures oral care products. This modification is for additional oral care product manufacturing equipment to be added at the facility, including new process equipment and control devices. All manufacturing equipment associated with the toothpaste manufacturing activities will be included within existing emission unit O-RCARE. The Department 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 website at www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6234.html.
