Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Bethlehem, Albany County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the New York State Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the federal Clean Air Act and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal, incorporating previous minor modifications and some new modifications, of the Title V permit for the Owens Corning Insulating Systems (OCIS) Delmar Plant located at 1277 Feura Bush Road, Feura Bush, in Albany County NY. The facility manufactures wool fiberglass insulation products and includes two glass furnaces and associated production lines controlled by electrostatic precipitators and other air pollution control equipment.

The permit modifications include more stringent NOx emission limits in accordance with NOx emission testing conducted by the facility on both oxymelters to determine line-specific NOx RACT emission limits, a revision to the process permissible emissions for the bagging equipment on the DM-2 manufacturing line (process BC2) to reflect the emission rate established previously for permit renewal No. 1 modification No. 8, the removal of the NESHAP 40 CFR 63 Subpart JJJJ requirements as the facility is no longer a major source of Hazardous Air Pollutants due to their binder formulation having been switched from a phenol formaldehyde base to a starch base, and the correction of typographical errors.

In accordance with 6 NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the 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.
