Application ID: 5-1548-00008/00081
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: in Ticonderoga in Essex County.
Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and made a tentative determination to approve this application to consolidate currently permitted emission sources into a Title V facility permit for the applicant's pulp and paper manufacturing mill. The facility processes hardwood and softwood pulp logs and chips using the kraft process. Converted kraft pulp is washed, bleached and prepared for finishing by paper machines. Large rolls of paper are then rewound and cut into sheets to meet customer specifications. A number of supporting processes are required to produce the pulp and paper. Boilers produce steam for generating electricity as well as process and comfort heat. The recovery boiler and recausticizing process recovers chemicals from the pulping process and prepares them for reuse. The wastewater treatment plant collects and processes wastewater prior to discharge. The facility is a major source of particulate, sulfur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOC's) and hazardous air pollutants(HAP's) emissions. These emissions are regulated by state and federal regulations as well as a consent order signed in 1974 by representatives of the States of Vermont and New York. The consent order requires the facility to control emissions of total reduced sulfur from the recovery boiler and lime kiln and requires that noncondenseable gasses from the pulping process be collected and controlled to at least 99% control efficiency. HAP emissions from the bleach plant and pulping process are regulated by 40CFR63 Subpart S. Fuels are regulated by 6NYCRR Part 225 and combustion sources are regulated by 6NYCRR Part 227. Process sources are regulated by by 6NYCRR Part 212. Emissions of sulfur dioxide and particulates from the power boiler are further regulated by 40CFR52. Primary pollutant control systems include thermal oxidation, electrostatic precipitation and wet scrubbing of exhaust gasses. Continuous emission monitors record emissions of sulfur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen from the power boiler and total reduced sulfur from the recovery boiler and lime kiln. The application, draft permit and relevant materials are available for review at the Warrensburg DEC office. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement prior to the comment deadline. DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon the nature and scope of any issues 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 has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirementsof the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.
