Application ID:

9-2909-00107/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Lockport, Niagara County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue the renewal of the Title V Permit for VanDeMark Chemical Inc. located on North Transit Road in the City of Lockport. VanDeMark Chemical Inc. manufactures custom chemicals, including phosgene and phosgene derivatives. The facility is a major source of carbon monoxide, but also emits nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and various hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). The draft permit contains a previously established emission cap limiting emissions of VOCs to less than 50 tons during any consecutive twelve month period to avoid the Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 212. The draft permit also maintains a cap limiting facility-wide SO2 emissions to less than 40 tons per year in order to avoid Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) applicability. The draft permit includes the addition of a tray dryer/carbon in Building D-6 for the removal of heptane from polycarbonates and the addition of general ventilation for centrifuge pack-out in Building D-1.

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 6 NYCRR 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 DEC 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.
