Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Gates, Monroe County

Project Description:

The applicant, Hammer Packaging Corp, which currently holds an air facility registration due to emissions of less than 5 ton per year (TPY) of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) to avoid Part 228-1 applicability, is seeking a State Air Facility application. The facility prints product labels on film and converts pre-printed shrinkwrap labels into sleeves. They propose to increase emissions of VOC above 5 TPY, to establish an alternative emission limit under RACT provisions of 228-1, and to increase future VOC emissions from previously exempt printers because of increases above 3 TPY. The Draft permit includes a proposed RACT variance from Part 228-1.3 for Surface Coating Processes which will require a federally enforceable limit of 10 TPY of emissions of VOC, and conditions under Part 234 for the printers. The Department is required to seek comments and address any significant issues on the Draft permit prior to making a final decision. The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office, or viewed or downloaded as an Adobe pdf file at:
