Vulcraft of New York Inc

Facility:

Vulcraft of New York Inc

Chemung, NY 14825

Application ID:

8-0728-00033/00003

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Chemung, Chemung County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal permit for Vulcraft of New York Inc. (Vulcraft) which submitted an application for renewal of its Title V Facility Permit for its Chemung Plant, located at 5362 Railroad Street in the Town of Chemung. The facility manufactures steel joists, bridging, and decking, and operations also include the application of anti-corrosion coatings. Facility Emission Units (EU) are: P‑00001, venting steel joist and bridging welding operations, coating operations, dip tanks, and drying ovens; and P‑00002, venting steel deck production, cleaning, and coating operations.

The Vulcraft - Chemung Plant meets the definition of a Major Source in 6 NYCRR Part 201‑2.1(b)(21), and is subject to Part 201‑6 requirements for a Title V Facility Permit due to potential emissions of VOC in excess of 50 tons per year, and potential emissions of Glycol Ethers, a class of hazardous air pollutant (HAP), and total HAP compounds, in excess of 25 tons per year. The current permit and draft renewal permit include:

Compliance with 40CFR 60 Subpart TT NSPS for Metal Coil Coating will limit VOC content in surface coatings for steel decking to 0.28 kg per liter (2.34 pounds per gallon) of coating solids applied.

Compliance with Part 231-2.5 lowest achievable emission rate (LAER) requirements will specify maximum VOC content in surface coatings, of 4.5 pounds per gallon of solids applied to steel joists, 1.25 pounds per gallon of solids applied to bridging materials, and 1 pound per gallon of solids applied to steel decking (below the Subpart TT limit above).

Compliance with 40CFR 63 Subpart MMMM MACT Standards for Miscellaneous Metal Parts will limit organic HAP emissions, from joist and bridging material surface coating operations, to 0.31 kg per liter (2.6 pounds per gallon) of coating solids applied.

Compliance with 40CFR 63 Subpart SSSS MACT Standards for Metal Coil Coating will limit organic HAP emissions, from steel deck coating operations, to 0.046 kg per liter (0.384 pounds per gallon) of coating solids applied.

Department staff determined that proposed emissions of HAP compounds from this facility will not cause concentrations to reach significant levels for any off site receptors.

Changes proposed in the renewal permit include:

Vulcraft submitted two proposed minor modifications for additional paint tanks in the last year, including bridging line dip tanks and swing line dip tanks, to reduce paint waste, which would not increase the emissions beyond the Potential to Emit approved in the initial Title V permit. Therefore, the projects were allowed as minor projects. They were completed and are now being included in the renewal permit.

Revised Part 228 citations due to the rewrite of the regulation and newly applicable condition requiring compliance with the federal standard.

Compliance with the federal requirements of 40CRF 63.ZZZZ for National Emissions Standards for HAPs for Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines; Compliance with 40CRF 63.6X -National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants Area Source Standards for Nine Metal Fabrication and Finishing Source Categories for visual monitoring, best management practices, and certification.

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.
