Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Wayland, Steuben County

Project Description:

Gunlocke Co Inc has submitted an application for renewal of its current Title V Permit for its Wayland Facility, which manufactures wood chairs and case goods. Facility operations include wood and particle board machining and sanding operations, wood preparation and coating lines, adhesive application operations, and two steam production boilers rated at 21 million and 18 million BTU per hour heat input. Both boilers were previously fired by either natural gas or #2 fuel oil, with the smaller boiler also able to burn wood and non-hazardous paint filters.

The facility is required to maintain a Title V Facility Permit as specified in 6 NYCRR Part 201-6, due to potential emissions in excess of Title V applicability thresholds of 50 tons per year of volatile organic compounds (VOC), and 25 tons per year of total hazardous air pollutants (HAP).

Proposed changes from the current Permit are limited to the removal of #2 fuel oil as a fuel for both boilers, and the removal of the paint filters as a fuel for the smaller boiler.

In response to the application, the Department has prepared a Draft Title V Permit and has made a tentative determination to issue the Draft Permit as a Title V Facility Permit.

The Draft Permit maintains a VOC emission limit, part of the initial Title V Facility Permit issued June 12, 2000, to limit coating use on a then new coating line, Emission Unit 6‑00000. This restricts VOC emissions from that coating line to 39 tons per year, below the 40 ton per year increase applicability threshold of 6 NYCRR Part 231 New Source Review (NSR) in Ozone Transport Regions.

The Draft Permit also maintains a VOC emission limit which was part of the first renewal and modification of the Title V Facility Permit effective June 5, 2008, to limit coating use on a second, newer coating line, Emission Unit 6‑00001. This restricts VOC emissions from the newer coating line to 39 tons per year, below the Part 231 NSR 40 ton per year applicability threshold.

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.
