Applicant:

Durez Corporation

Facility:

Durez Niagara
5000 Packard Rd
Niagara Falls, NY 14304

Application ID:

9-2911-00111/00105

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Niagara Falls, Niagara County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a modified Title V Permit for the Durez Niagara facility located at 5000 Packard Road in the City of Niagara Falls. Durez Niagara is a manufacturer of phenolic resins which are mainly used as glues (bonding agents) or coatings to protect surfaces. The site consists of two main resin production buildings; a waste water treatment plant that treats all sanitary wastewater, storm water, and non-hazardous process waste water; two tank farms containing bulk storage for raw materials, finished product, and hazardous/non-hazardous waste waters; and a process waste water hazardous waste incinerator. The Durez Niagara incinerator is an aqueous liquid disposal system consisting of a 20 million BTU/hour enclosed flame thermal oxidizer and waste heat boiler. The feed to the incinerator consists primarily of water (77 to 98 percent) with phenol, formaldehyde, solvents and trace quantities of other organics. Durez Niagara is subject to 40 CFR 63 Subpart EEE as a hazardous waste incinerator and must monitor various parameters continuously to demonstrate compliance. Performance testing of the incinerator is required every two and a half years. The various resin grinding operations, chemical storage and chemical transfer operations are subject to 6 NYCRR Part 212. Durez Niagara also operates a regenerative thermal oxidizer to control odors from the resin production process.

This permit modification proposes to amend several operating parameter limits and associated monitoring conditions, including the total chlorine feed rate, maximum flue gas flow rate, minimum operating temperature, maximum metals feed rates, and other operating parameters to be consistent with the results of the facility's latest required comprehensive performance test, which was conducted on November 10-14, 2014. The results of that test have been reviewed and approved by the Department.

This permit modification also includes a change to the emissions control layout for the resin flaking operation at the facility. The facility has decommissioned the wet scrubber that controlled this line, and has instead connected the emission point to the regenerative thermal oxidizer for control.

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.
