ENB Region 3 Completed Applications 01/21/2015

Orange County

Applicant:

Carlisle Construction Material Incorporated
1285 Ritner Hwy
Carlisle, PA 17013

Facility:

Carlisle Construction Materials
9 Hudson Crossing Dr
Montgomery, NY 12549

Application ID:

3-3334-00106/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Hamptonburgh, Orange County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue an Air State Facility permit renewal for Carlisle Construction Materials Incorporated. Carlisle has a rigid foam manufacturing facility (Hunter Panels) located in the Town of Hamptonburgh, Orange County. The facility manufactures polyisocyanurate foam panels (two lines) for use in commercial and industrial roofing applications.

The polyisocyanurate foam insulating panels are produced on two separate lines by reacting polyol in a blend of fire retardant and catalyst with polymeric diphenylmethane diisocyanate (PMDI). Pentane material is used as an expanding or blowing agent. Panels are formed by combining the materials at a pour table and lamination process (front end). Pentane emissions (Volatile Organic Compounds) are collected during the pour and lamination process and controlled by a regenerative thermal oxidizer. Manufactured insulation panels are cut and trimmed to meet dimensional requirements for industry and customer specification. A dust collection system captures particulates generated during sawing and trimming operations (back end) which are controlled by a baghouse filter unit.

The insulating foam process is subject to 6 NYCRR Part 212 - General Process requirements. Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions are limited below major stationary source thresholds supported by the proper operation of the regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO).

The Standard Industrial Classification representative of this facility is 3086 - Plastics Foam Product.

Renewal 1

Renewal addresses a change to the emission factors for the existing ISO process lines. Initial emission factors proposed with the original application were based on data from other Hunter Panels facilities. Formal compliance testing on Line 1 and engineering evaluations on both lines have been conducted and a slight increase in the emission factors associated with the current processes is necessary. The Insulfoam EPS operation was never installed at the facility and CCM has eliminated plans to add this process to the Montgomery facility. All components of the permit associated with the EPS process have been removed. In addition, a second regenerative thermal oxidizer is being brought onsite in order to keep VOC emissions below the 49.5 tons per year cap. The RTO will be used as necessary to destroy VOC emissions routed from the sawing and trimming operations (back end), which are currently uncontrolled.

The facility is subject to monitoring, reporting and recordkeeping requirements under 6 NYCRR Part 201, 6 NYCRR Part 202, 6 NYCRR Part 212 and 40 CFR Part 68. Air state facility permits expire after ten years, as per 6 NYCRR Part 201-5.2(c). By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Cortlandt, Westchester County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue an Air State Facility permit renewal for The VA Hudson Valley Health Care System, Montrose Campus, Westchester County. The facility is a Veterans Hospital which provides general medical and other health care services. It consists primarily of a hospital building, which supports general medical facilities, laboratories and office space. The hospital operates four (4) - 32.58 mmBtu/hr dual fuel boilers, and thirteen (13) diesel/No. 2 fuel-fired emergency backup generators. The facility is limited to facility-wide NOx emissions of 22.5 tons of NOx per year. This limit requires facility wide fuel usage caps. This NOx cap will allow the facility to cap out of NOx RACT and Title V requirements.

Renewal 1

Department initiated renewal addresses minor condition changes, as well as adds mandatory conditions for regulations that have been updated after this permit was first issued. New limits have been put in for the distillate fuel sulfur content, as per the updated 225-1.2 regulation, with new reporting frequencies. Renewal expiration, under 201-5.2(c), applies ten years from the issuance date. The facility is involved with an ongoing project that will have the four 32.58 mmBtu/hr boilers replaced by three 34.7 mmBtu/hr boilers and one 6.7 mmBtu/hr summer boiler. At the time of the latest inspection (9/12/14), one of the old boilers has been removed and one of the new boilers has been put on-site (not installed yet).

The facility is subject to monitoring, reporting and recordkeeping requirements under 6 NYCRR Part 201, 6 NYCRR Part 225 and 6 NYCRR Part 227. The facility is also subject to 40 CFR 60 Subpart IIII and 40 CFR 63 Subpart JJJJJJ federal requirements.
