Application ID:

9-2930-00015/02001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Niagara, Niagara County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a modification for the facility which is a producer of crushed limestone and asphalt paving products. This modification reflects the replacement of the existing baghouse and the replacement of the primary cyclone with a particulate knock-out box. Emissions from the facility consist of particulates and particulate matter (PM)-10 from the crushing, screening and conveying operations and volatile organic compounds (VOC), sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, PM and various hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from the asphalt production. The facility will accept production limits so that actual emissions remain below the major source thresholds of 100 tons per year (tpy) of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, PM and sulfur dioxides and 50 tpy VOC and 25 tpy total HAP. This permit contains facility-wide federally enforceable emission limits to establish minor source status for 6NYCRR, Part 231-2-Non-Attainment New Source Review; 6NYCRR, Part 212-3-Resonably Available Control Technology for VOC and NOx; and 6NYCRR, Part 201-6- Title V Permits.

The Department is seeking comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance. A draft permit is available for review.
