Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Wallkill, Orange County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal Title V Air Facility Permit for the operation of Revere Smelting & Refining Corporation (Revere). The Facility operates a secondary lead smelter located in the Town of Wallkill, Orange County, New York. Incoming raw materials consists primarily of used lead-acid batteries. The majority of these batteries are automotive type, although various types of industrial and specialty type lead-acid batteries are also received. Other types of lead-bearing materials amenable to process operations include materials received from lead-acid battery manufacturing plants and scrap metal.

Lead-acid batteries are fed into the battery wrecker where they are mechanically crushed, shredded and hammered for sizing. Solid components of the battery are separated by a sink/float system. Battery electrolyte is collected, and transferred to the scrubber metals co-precipitation process for pH adjustment. The battery case material is washed and pneumatically transferred into trailers for shipment to plastic recyclers.

The metal portion of the battery ("Battery Wrecker Material") is fed to a hopper and then metered to a natural gas fired rotary dryer which serves to reduce the moisture in the charge material. The dried charge material is continuously fed to the reverberatory furnace which is fired by natural gas, oxygen-enriched burners. Antimony, arsenic, tin, calcium, aluminum, and other alloying elements in the metal are oxidized to the slag while lead is refined to produce a low impurity lead metal. The lead metal is tapped either into molds or directly into refining kettles which are designed to convert the metal produced by the furnace into ingots of specific contents required by customer specifications. Two basic types of metal are produced in the refinery: "Hard Lead" and "Soft Lead." Hard lead contains relatively high amounts of alloying agents such as antimony, and soft lead is nearly pure lead. The compositions of these alloys are adjusted in the refining process to provide for the physical and metallurgical characteristics to satisfy customer requirements.

Revere also operates a crystallizer process which converts liquor from the onsite sulfur dioxide wet scrubber and neutralized battery electrolyte into sodium sulfate crystals which are sold on the open market.

Emission Sources

The main source of emissions at the facility are lead processing activities which include:
Kiln drying of lead containing material;
Smelting of dried lead containing material;
Slag Casting;
Refining Kettles; and
Material Handling & Storage.

The lead processing areas are kept under negative pressure to ensure that no fugitive lead emissions are released from the facility. All point sources are controlled by baghouses. Scrubbers are employed to remove sulfur dioxide from the reverberatory furnace and short rotary furnace.

Two diesel generators are used to provide supplemental power when requested by the utility company, and during power outages. The operations of these units are limited to 500 hours per year.

Revere is subject to Title V permitting since emissions of sulfur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen exceed major stationary source thresholds defined by 6NYCRR 201.

The Standard Industrial Classification representative of this facility is 3341 - Secondary Nonferrous Metals.

Revere is subject to numerous monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements defined under 40 CFR 63-A, 40 CFR 63-X, 40 CFR 60-L, 6 NYCRR 201, 6 NYCRR 212, 6 NYCRR 225 and 6 NYCRR 227.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.3(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.
