Ontario County

Applicant:

Guardian Industries Corp
2300 Harmon Rd
Auburn Hills, MI 48326 -1714

Facility:

Guardian Industries Corp

Application ID:

8-3205-00041/00013

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Geneva, Ontario County


Project Description:

Guardian Industries Corporation has applied for a modification of the Title V Facility Permit for the Guardian Industries Corporation - Geneva Float Glass Facility. The facility is utilized for float glass manufacturing. The permit modification will increase the furnace capacity throughput and includes installation of additional emission control devices to satisfy the requirements of a Consent Decree dated January 13, 2016. Additionally, the CO limit will be removed as the 3R process will no longer exist, and the NOx limit no longer applies pursuant to the Consent Decree.

The permit identifies that particulates from raw material and cullet handling operations are subject to a Part 212 standard, and are also subject to PSD BACT requirements. Both PSD and Part 212 requirements are met with emission controls serving these sources. The glass melting furnace is a Part 212 process, with a permissible particulate emission rate based on process weight, but a process emission source compliant with 40 CFR 60 NSPS satisfies Part 212 requirements. With the furnace subject to 40 CFR 60 Subpart CC particulate requirements, the more stringent NSPS limit applies. The NSPS opacity limit is also more stringent than Part 212 and requires a continuous opacity monitor for compliance assurance.

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue the permit modification. The application, Draft Permit, and Permit Review Report are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed or downloaded as .pdf files at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/dardata/boss/afs/draft_atv.html

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. 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.

Project Description:

The applicant has applied for an initial permit for the continued withdrawal of 630,000 gallons per day of water from Seneca Lake for potable water supply. The facility has been in operation since 1995. No changes in current operations from recent years are proposed.

The Department has determined that the Facility is eligible for an Initial Permit under Section 15-1501.9 of the Environmental Conservation Law.

Initial Water Withdrawal Permits for the reported volume.

The Department has determined that the issuance of "initial permits" under ECL section 15-501.9 as implemented by 6 NYCRR 601.7 is a ministerial action and therefore subject to the Type II exemption set out in 6 NYCRR 617.5(c)(19).
