Facility: Valeo Inc Engine Cooling Truck Division
2258 Allen St
Jamestown, NY 14701-
Application ID: 9-0608-00017/00363
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Title V Facility Permit
Project is Located: in Jamestown in Chautauqua County.
Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft permit and made a tentative determination to approve this application. Valeo Engine Cooling manufactures radiators and charge air coolers for the heavy truck industry. The facility is a major source under Title V of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) since its potential to emit (PTE) for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is greater than the threshold value of 50 tons per year (tpy), the PTE for total hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) exceeds the 25 tpy threshold, and the PTE for an individual HAP, 2-butoxyethanol, exceeds the 10 tpy threshold. Processes at the facility include metal forming, parts cleaning, soldering, welding, drying, painting and laboratory testing. The requirements of volatile organic compound reasonably available control technology (VOC RACT) of 6 NYCRR 212.10 are applicable to the facility since it has the PTE greater than fifty tons per year. VOC RACT requires eighty one percent reduction in VOC emissions from the applicable general process sources. An analysis showed that is was not technically or economically feasible to reduce emissions by eighty one percent for all sources. However it was determined a lesser degree of control, of about fifty percent from previous emission levels was economically and technically feasible. Since some controls were already in use, the fifty percent reduction from previous emission levels, is equal to about a sixty five percent overall reduction. This variance for a lesser degree of control has been approved by the Department and will be submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency for a final decision as a single source State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision. The VOC emissions from the emission units associated with the aluminum product line are limited to less than 85 tons per year to avoid the requirements of New Source Review. If VOC emissions from the aluminum line increase to more than 85 tons, than the New Source Review requirements would be applicable. The twelve month rolling total of VOC emissions are determined monthly to evaluate if the 85 ton limit is being meet. The Application, Draft Permit, relevant supporting materials, and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the DEC office provided in this notice. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicated. DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon a evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised. Hearing Notices will contain instructions on filing for party status and submitting comments. In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(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.

State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) Determination: Project is not subject to SEQR because it is a Type II action.

Application ID: 9-0622-00003/00071
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Title V Facility Permit
Project is Located: in Busti in Chautauqua County.
Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft permit and made a tentative determination to approve this application pursuant to Article 19, Air Pollution Control, of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act for existing facility wide emissions located at 4720 Baker Street Extension in the City of Lakewood, Chautauqua County. The Cummins Engine Company Plant manufactures, assembles, and paints diesel engines. The facility also machines cams for engines that are assembled elsewhere. The plant includes various dry and wet machining, fabricating, washing, assembly and painting operations. The plant also contains an engine test facility, a boiler plant, and a wastewater treatment plant. The facility is a major source under Title V for oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOC). The Draft permit contains a cap on sulfur dioxide emissions to limit emissions below the federal Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) major facility threshold of 250 tons/year (typ). VOC emissions from surface coating operations are capped to stay below the 40 tpy significant source project applicability threshold of 6NYCRR 231-2, New Source Review. Emission caps on xylene and 2-butoxy-ethanol emissions (10 tpy each) from surface coating operations are also contained in this permit so that the surface coating line is non-major for hazardous air pollutants and as such would not be subject to future federal emission standards for hazardous air pollutants. The facility's NOx emission sources are subject to NOx Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) requirements contained in Part 227-2. This permit contains periodic monitoring conditions for NOx RACT emission limits. The facility is subject to the requirements for VOC RACT as specified in 6NYCRR Part 212 for process sources. This permit requires the facility to complete a source specific RACT analysis and install RACT where determined necessary. The facility is also required to use surface coatings which comply with VOC content limits in Part 228. This permit contains periodic monitoring conditions for monitoring compliance with those limits. The application, draft permit, relevant suuporting materials and regulations are available for review and comment during normal business hours at the Department's Region 9 Office. In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.

Application ID: 9-5620-00091/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility Permit
Project is Located: in Arcade in Wyoming County.
Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and made a tentative determination to approve this application for an Air State Facility Permit. The facility is a newly constructed aluminum foundry that melts virgin ingots for use in precision molding operations. The facility has two gas fired furnaces and two electric induction furnace. Emissions from this facility consist of silica sand and organics from metal pouring and sand forming and sand handling operations. Silica sand is a hazardous air pollutant and as such is required to comply with 6NYCRR Part 212 emission limits and Air Guide 1 ambient air impact concentrations. This facility will accomplish this by installing a bag collector to control particulates from this process and by installing an exhaust stack of adequate height to ensure proper dispersion of air contaminants and by limiting emissions of silica sand. The facility also will emit isopropyl alcohol, a volatile organic compound (VOC) from its molding operations. This permit includes federally enforceable capping conditions which limit silica sand emissions below Title V permitting applicability levels and limits VOC below Title V permitting and New Source Review (Part 231) applicability levels. The facility is not subject to New Source Performance Standards for Secondary Aluminum operations because pure aluminum ingots are used for aluminum melting and molding. This permit, however, requires an observation for smoke opacity during fluxing to determine whether an emission stack test is needed to quantify particulate and hydrogen chloride and hydrogen fluoride. The Application, Draft Permit, relevant supporting materials, and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the DEC office provided in this notice. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicated. DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon a evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised. Hearing Notices will contain instructions on filing for party status and submitting comments.
