Applicant:

Metal Container Corp
One Busch Place
Saint Louis, MO 63118

Facility:

Metal Container Corp
130 Bruenig Rd
New Windsor, NY 12553

Application ID:

3-3348-00084/00131

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

New Windsor, Orange County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal of the Title V permit held by the Metal Container Corp. located in the Town of New Windsor, Orange County, New York. The facility manufactures two piece aluminum beverage cans. Emissions are from the cutting and forming of the can bodies as well as the coating and decorating operations. Primary emissions associated with facility operations are Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx). The NOx and CO emissions are from the thermal oxidizer and heating sources. The thermal oxidizer functions as a control of VOCs and HAPs generated as result of aluminum can coating and decorating operations.

The Frontend Operations (Emission Unit U-1000) includes the formation of the can body. Emissions are from the cutting oils and cleaners from the cupper, bodymaker and washer. Emissions are controlled by munter oil mist and cyclone units.

The Backend Operations (Emission Unit U-2000) includes the coating and decorating of the formed can bodies. Emissions from the curing ovens are VOC's, and HAP's which are routed and controlled by the natural gas fired thermal oxidizer.

Facility wide natural usage is capped at 547.5 million cubic feet per year limiting NOx emissions to less than 40 tons per year. This cap was established under the original 2001 permit and remains in effect.

Total VOC emissions from the backend operations are limited to less than 326 tons per year (tpy). This limit was established to support the creation of emission reduction credits under a permit issued in 2012. This limit remains in effect.

Total VOC emissions from the Big Can Line (25.5 ounce) are limited to 115 tpy. This limit as well as a number of monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements were established under a permit issued in 2012 reflecting a non-attainment new source review determination (Part 231). These requirements remain in effect.

Because the facility is not a major source of HAPs, 40 CFR 63-KKKK does not apply.

This permit renewal also incorporates a conversion project of can line 3 from producing 12 ounce cans exclusively to producing both 12 ounce and 16 ounce cans interchangeably. This conversion results in a project VOC emission potential of 59.0 tpy. In accordance with the requirements of 6NYCRR Subpart 231-6, the line 3 conversion is subject to nonattainment new source review (NNSR) for VOC. Based on the applicability of NNSR, the facility is required to offset the project with 67.85 tpy VOC emission reduction credits (ERCs). The source of these ERCs is the Metal Container Corp. The permit contains numerous monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements conditions under 6NYCRR Subpart 231 which reflect a NNSR determination relative to the operation of the line 3 conversion. This demonstration is available for review upon request.

The facility's potential air emissions for VOC's and CO exceed the major source pollutant thresholds in 6NYCRR Subpart 201-6. Therefore, the facility is subject to the provisions of Title V. The Standard Industrial Classification Code for this facility is 3411 - Metal Cans and Shipping Containers.

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.

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 Department 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.
