Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Oneida County

Project Description:

The Department has received a request for a new permit to operate air pollution sources and has drafted pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, an Air State Facility Permit, for the Hanson Oriskany Falls facility located in the Town of Oriskany Falls, Oneida County, New York. This State Facility Permit has been drafted as a replacement for the now outdated format of permitting, Certificates to Operate. This facility is engaged in the mining and processing of limestone rock. The Standard Industrial Classification representative of this facility is 1422, Crushed and Broken Limestone.

This State Facility Permit is for a limestone mine consisting of five (5) emission units. The emission units are organized as follows: Portable hot mix asphalt equipment, Permanent hot mix asphalt equipment, Portable aggregate equipment, Permanent aggregate equipment, and Portable generators. The organization of the emission units was determined to allow for the facility to be more flexible in its day to day operations. Overall a total of 247 sources are permitted for the facility, although it is not expected that all sources will be on site at any given time. Several portable sources have been designated and may be moved and operated at a number of Hanson facilites. The equipment on site includes a number of crushers, screens, conveyors, engines, and hot mix asphalt (HMA) equipment.

The facility will accept caps for carbon monoxide (CO), and oxides of nitrogen (NOx). Facility wide capping of these emissions are to ensure the facility does not exceed the major facility threshold. Additional monitoring is in place for particulates, VOCs, and sulfur dioxide.
