Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Rochester, Monroe County
Project Description:

The Department has received an application from Eastman Kodak Company for an Air State Facility Permit to operate a new Emission Unit U-0049A, to include new and modified emission sources for photographic paper production at the Kodak Park facility. The new sources will be located in a 9184 square foot addition to the north side of Building 52. The processes involved are photographic paper handling and treatment operations exhausting to two new emission points, and modifications to increase the capacity of existing solution delivery and photographic paper coating operations exhausting to existing emission points.

The applicant also proposes to accept Special Permit Conditions for the modified paper coating operations which will effectively cap the increase in potential emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) from Emission Unit U-0049A, below the 40 ton per year applicability threshold of 40 CFR Part 52 and 6 NYCRR Part 231 New Source Review in Ozone Transport Regions. The Special Permit Conditions will restrict potential VOC emissions from Emission Points 52-N7 and 52-N8 to 56 tons per year.

To verify that the Emission Unit U-0049A is in compliance with these permit conditions, the permittee will be required to maintain monthly records of the quantity of VOC delivered to the paper coating machines, and 12 month rolling totals of VOC emissions. These records are to be maintained at the Kodak Park facility for a minimum of five years and must be made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office. Comments on this application will be received until the date indicated below, and should refer to the application ID number indicated above.
