Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located:
Malta, Saratoga County
The Department has prepared a draft permit and made a tentative determination to issue a Title V Permit for the Fab 8 semi-conductor manufacturing facility. The facility currently operates under an Air State Facility Permit. Federal greenhouse gas regulations, which became effective after issuance of the existing permit, make the facility a major source of greenhouse gas emissions and require conversion of the existing permit to a Title V Permit. There are no other pollutants with major source level potential emissions.
The Title V permit includes additional reporting and recordkeeping requirements and lowers permit limits for hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride and chlorine emissions. It does not authorize an increase in allowable emissions of any contaminants.
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.
