Application ID: 9-1402-00021/00081
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 made a tentative determination to approve this application for an Air Title V facility permit for existing sources and previously authorized emissions. Outokumpu American Brass manufactures and processes various alloys of copper and zinc. The major processing activities include: casting, annealing, hot rolling, and milling. In the cast shop, copper and other metals, including zinc alloy, are melted in electric induction furnaces and poured into water cooled molds to form hot cakes. After heating, cakes are hot rolled to various thicknesses then milled to produce a uniform thickness. Annealing furnaces are used to slowly heat and cool the alloy materials resulting in desired strength and brittleness characteristics. At the end of the annealing process strand materials are usually run through an acidic bath, before being re-wound, in order to remove scale and metal oxides that may have formed. Skimmings, grindings, dross and other materials are routinely sorted and collected for reuse in raw materials. The facility has four natural gas fired boilers for heat and process steam. In 1999 a new tinning line was constructed for brass or copper strip material. Currently the installation of a new cleaning line for brass strips is being planned. The facility is subject to Title V permitting requirements due primarily to the carbon monoxide generated from the combustion of natural gas in the annealing furnaces and boilers. It is also subject to Prevention of Significant Deterioration requirements for the same compounds. Emission estimates were prepared using a combination of published emission factors, stack test results, and engineering calculations.

The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review and comment during normal business hours at the Department's Region 9 office. Comments of support or objection may be made by filling a written statement by the deadline indicated. The Department may schedule a public hearing based upon an evaluation of the nature and scope of written comments received. If a hearing is scheduled it will be preceded by an additional public notice and participation guidance. 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.

Application ID: 9-2911-00030/00321
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Niagara Falls, Niagara County
Project Description:

The Department has drafted a permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments, and made a tentative determination to approve this application for the applicant's existing facility located at Buffalo Avenue and 26th Street in the City of Niagara Falls. The Buffalo Avenue facility is divided into two primary production areas: Sodium and Terathane(R). The Sodium area produces sodium and lithium metals by electrolysis in molten baths. Additionally, chlorine is produced as a by-product. The Terathane(R) area uses volatile organic compounds as raw materials to produce blends of polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG). The facility also has support operations including water treatment and two boilers with maximum heat inputs of 180 million BTU/hr and 202 million BTU/hr. There are four emission units at the plant as follows:

U-NIT01 - Sodium Manufacturing Area produces sodium metal, lithium metal and chlorine as a by-product

U-NIT02 - Terathane(R) production of PTMEG and associated products

U-NIT03 - Powerhouse generates process steam for the facility

U-NIT04 - Environmental Services treats liquid waste streams from the production areas

The facility operation is permitted primarily under the following regulations:

1) 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 requires the facility to obtain a Title V Permit.

2) 6 NYCRR Part 212 requires process sources to install air emission control devices depending

on the type of contaminant emitted and the emission rate potential.

3) 6 NYCRR Part 227 regulates stationary combustion sources in the powerhouse.

4) 6 NYCRR Part 229 regulates volatile organic liquid storage tanks.

5) 40 CFR 63, Subpart PPP (polyether polyol production NESHAP) regulates Terathane(R)

production.

The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials, and regulations are available for

review during normal business hours at the regional office. Written comments may be made

within the 30 day period ending on the last filing date indicated in this notice. The Department

may modify the draft permit based on significant or important information raised during the

comment period. The Department may also schedule a public hearing based upon an evaluation

of the nature and scope of any written objections raised. A hearing notice would contain

instructions on filing for party status and submitting comments. In accordance with 6 NYCRR

Part 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 the applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6 NYCRR Part

201. Following the 30 day comments period, the USEPA will have an additional 45 days to

review the draft or modified draft permit. If the USEPA does not raise any objection in that time,

the Department may then issue the final draft permit as the Title V Permit.
