Application ID:


Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Cheektowaga, Erie County

Project Description:

The Department has received an application and made a tentative determination to approve a major modification of the Title V permit for Cello-Pack Corporation of Buffalo. Cello-Pack designs, prints and converts flexible packaging materials used in food, medical, industrial and personal care/hygiene consumer products. Cello-Pack is subject to the Title V permitting requirements stated in 6NYCRR Part 201-6 for major facilities. Cello-Pack is proposing to replace the current catalytic oxidizer with a larger regenerative thermal oxidation unit and add a fourth flexographic press, press #10. This press is subject to New Source Review (NSR) and, based on its potential to emit (PTE), must limit volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions to less than 40 tons per year (tpy). The facility will limit potential VOC emissions from Presses 9 & 10 to less than 39 tpy for each press, which is less than the VOC project emission potential applicability threshold of 40 tpy per 6NYCRR Part 231-13 New Source Review. The capping requirement uses the capture and control efficiency from stack testing to calculate the VOC emissions on a 12 month rolling total to determine compliance with the individual 40 ton caps for presses 9 and 10. This modification also removes the VOC emissions limits for presses 7 and 8 because with the current 80% overall removal efficiency requirement the PTEs for presses 7 and 8 are less than 40 tpy.

In accordance with 6 NYCRR Part 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 6 NYCRR 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.
