ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 03/04/2015

Genesee County

Applicant:

Graham Corporation
20 Florence Ave
Batavia, NY 14020

Facility:

Graham Corporation
20 Florence Ave
Batavia, NY 14020

Application ID:

8-1802-00016/00015

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Batavia, Genesee County

Project Description:

Graham Corporation has submitted an application for an Air State Facility Permit to replace an Air Facility Registration for its Batavia Facility, which manufactures vacuum, pumping, and heat transfer equipment for industrial processes and the energy production industry. Potential emissions above Title V thresholds in 6NYCRR Part 201-6, actual emissions that may exceed the Significant Mass Emission Rates for Persistent, Bioaccumulative and Toxic Compounds in Part 201-9, and proposed variances from the requirements of Part 228-1 Surface Coating Processes, require a Permit to replace the Air Facility Registration.

As part of the application, Graham Corporation proposes to limit coating materials, utilize alternate compliant coatings, and maintain and monitor coating equipment to restrict facility emissions to below Title V thresholds of 50 tons per year of volatile organic compounds (VOC), 10 tons per year of any individual hazardous air pollutant (HAP) compound, and 25 tons per year of all HAP compound emissions combined.

Graham Corporation is also seeking variances from the requirements of 6NYCRR Part 228 for its coating operations. Graham Corporation proposes a variance from Part 228-1.4 Requirements for controlling VOC emissions using compliant materials based on technical infeasibility, and a variance from Part 228-1.5 Requirements for controlling VOC emissions using add-on controls or coating systems based on economic infeasibility. The Department has accepted the process, equipment, and cost information submitted as sufficient to establish that non-compliant coatings are currently required for the coating operations involved, and that the cost of add-on VOC controls would exceed the Department's cost guidelines per ton of emissions controlled.

In response to the application, the Department has generated a Draft Air State Facility Permit including conditions to restrict facility VOC and HAP emissions to below Title V thresholds on a 12 month rolling total basis.

The Draft Permit requires Graham Corporation to maintain monthly records of coating, chemical, and solvent use and resultant emissions on site for a minimum of five years. These records must be made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue the Draft Permit as a Final Permit if comments received do not raise significant issues that must be addressed before a permit can be issued.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office. The Draft Permit may be viewed or downloaded as a .pdf file at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/dardata/boss/afs/draft_asf.html
