Facility: A Schonbek Co Inc
61 Industrial Blvd
Plattsburgh, NY 12901-1998
Application ID: 5-0942-00001/00034
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Plattsburgh, Clinton County
Project Description:

The Department has received a complete application and has developed a draft permit that consolidates existing emission point permits. It establishes facility wide emission caps of 49 tons per year of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) , 24 tons per year of total Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) and 9 tons per year of any individual HAP. These caps are below the major source level so the facility is not subject to Title V requirements. An additional emission unit cap of 20 tons per year of VOCs is established in support of a 2 year extension of an existing waiver which allows the facility to use coatings that do not comply with VOC content requirements of 6NYCRR Part 228. The company has provided documentation that compliant coatings which meet their specific requirements are not available and that the cost of installing a control device significantly exceeds the cost threshold for Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT). The draft permit also establishes new record keeping and reporting requirements. The draft permit is available by contacting Michael Sundberg of the Division of Air Resources staff in the Region 5 Warrensburg office at (518) 623-1212.
