Steuben County

Applicant:

Corning Incorporated
HP-ME-02-06
Corning, NY 14831

Facility:

Corning Diesel Manufacturing Facility
890 Addison Rd (St Rte 417)
Painted Post, NY 14870

Application ID:

8-4642-00108/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Erwin, Steuben County

Project Description:

The Department has received an application from Corning Incorporated for a third modification of its Title V Facility Permit to authorize operations at the Corning Inc - Diesel Manufacturing Facility, which manufactures ceramic filters and substrates for diesel engine emission control devices.

The Diesel Manufacturing Facility is a Major Source in 6 NYCRR Part 201‑2.1(b)(21) and is subject to Part 201-6 Title V Facility Permits due to potential emissions of particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide (CO), and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) in excess of 100 tons per year each, and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in excess of 50 tons per year.

The Facility is also a Major Stationary Source as defined in 40CFR 52.21 Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) due to potential CO emissions in excess of 250 tons per year.

Operations are grouped into Emission Units (EU), which include:

  • EU U‑00001, rail car and truck unloading and transfer operations, batch silo storage and screening operations, wet and dry mixing operations, plugging, skinning, contouring, and finishing operations;
  • EU U‑00002, volatile organic liquid storage tanks;
  • EU U‑00003, extruded ceramic drying operations;
  • EU U‑00004, 4 periodic kilns and 2 tunnel kilns firing extruded ceramic ware;
  • EU U‑00005, natural gas and diesel fired heaters, boilers, and emergency generators;
  • EU U‑00006, 2 newer tunnel kilns and their associated wet mixing, cutting, and drying operations; and
  • EU U‑00007, cutting, grinding, contouring, skinning, and finishing operations.

With this application, Corning Inc proposes the addition of new firing cycles and changes to existing firing cycles in the periodic kilns (DP1-4) and tunnel kilns (DT1-4). The proposed changes will improve process efficiencies, enable new product development and establish new shorter firing cycles and associated equipment upgrades to allow for larger throughput of product.

For these operations, Corning is seeking a significant modification subject to the requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 231-6: Modifications to Existing Major Facilities in Nonattainment Areas and Attainment Areas of the State within the Ozone Transport Region. Corning proposes to increase the Diesel Manufacturing Facility's current NOx emission limit of 138 tons per year with a new limit of 231.8 tons per year. This will make the sources involved subject to Lowest Achievable Emission Rate (LAER) limits as specified in Part 231-6.5.

Corning also proposes to limit the increase in hydrogen fluoride (HF) and PM emissions to below the thresholds in 6 NYCRR Part 231-8 Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) for Modifications to Major Facilities in Attainment Areas. These are to be based on stack testing, a minimum of 95 percent control of HF emissions when the fluorine content of the raw material exceeds 0.00002 pound per pound of material for all four tunnel kilns, and PM control to a maximum emission rate of 0.001 grains per dry standard cubic foot for EU U-00006 Process P08 PM emissions from ceramic mixing, cutting, and drying operations.

In addition, Corning proposes to limit the increase in VOC emissions to below the threshold in 6 NYCRR Part 231-6 Modifications to Existing Major Facilities in Nonattainment Areas and Attainment Areas of the State within the Ozone Transport Region. This is to be based on stack testing, a minimum of 99 percent control of VOC emissions and a maximum of 1.3 pounds of VOC emissions per ton of ceramic ware from EU U-00006 Tunnel Kiln 3, and a minimum of 99.9 percent control of VOC emissions and a maximum of 1.3 pounds of VOC emissions per ton of ceramic ware of from the newer EU U-00006 Tunnel Kiln 4.
Also as part of this application, Corning Inc proposes to maintain the following facility-wide emission limits unchanged. This will continue to restrict:

  • Facility CO emissions to less than 348 tons per year, with higher throughput offset by higher average temperatures in the proposed operations burning off much of the CO.
  • Facility PM emissions to less than 249 tons per year, including the newer finishing process EU U-00007, which is restricted to less than 10 tons per year of emissions of particulates with an aerodynamic diameter of 2.5 microns or less (PM 2.5), less than 15 tons per year of emissions of particulates with an aerodynamic diameter of 10 microns or less (PM 10), and less than 25 tons per year of emissions of total PM;
  • Facility VOC emissions to less than 161 tons per year.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Part 231-6.6 Emission offset requirements, Corning has obtained Emission Reduction Credits (ERC) of 300 tons of NOx per year and has applied ERC of 164 tons of NOx per year to comply with the 1.15 to 1 offset ratio for increases in NOx emissions. The unused 136 ton per year NOx ERC will be retired from the New York Registry.

Compliance Certification will require calculation of monthly emissions and 12 month rolling emission totals, with records and supporting information maintained on site for 5 years, and available to Department inspectors on request.

In response to the application, the Department has generated a Draft Title V Facility Permit, and has made a tentative determination to issue the Draft as a Final Permit, if comments received do not raise significant issues that must be addressed before a permit can be issued.

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.

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.
