Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Buffalo, Erie County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to approve the renewal of the Title V Air Permit for PVS Chemicals, Inc. (New York) located at 55 Lee Street in the City of Buffalo. PVS is a manufacturer of all strengths and grades of sulfuric acid and oleum using the contact process. Other substances produced and stored at this facility include ammonium thiosulfate and sodium bisulfite. Raw materials for these processes include molten sulfur, spent sulfuric acid, anhydrous ammonia, sodium hydroxide and sodium carbonate. The facility has eight emission units and is a major source of emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and therefore subject to the Title V permitting requirements of 40 CFR 70 and 6 NYCRR Parts 202-2 and 201-6.

Changes within this permit renewal include the addition of a sulfuric acid (expressed as 100 percent sulfuric acid) production limit of 300 tons per day. By accepting this limit, the facility will not be subject to continuous stack monitoring per 6 NYCRR 224.4(a)(2). Also included will be the addition of a requirement cited under 6 NYCRR Part 200.6 to assure compliance with the 1-hour SO2 National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) by maintaining a minimum scrubber efficiency. Additional changes include removal of emission unit U-00070, which had consisted of the aqueous diethanolamine sulfur dioxide adduct production process and a lowered sulfur in fuel limit per 6 NYCRR Part 225 which applies to the use of distillate oil in the facility boiler. The new limit of 0.0015 percent sulfur by weight is stricter than the federal limit of 0.5 percent in 40 CFR 60.42c(d).

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.
