Application ID: 9-1402-00435/00037
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Buffalo, Erie 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 facility in Buffalo. PVS Chemicals, Inc. (New York) is a manufacturer of all strengths and grades of sulfuric acid and oleum using the contact process. Other substances produced and stored at this facility include ammonium thiosulfate, sodium bisulfite, diethanolamine sulfur dioxide adduct, etc. Raw materials for these processes are molten sulfur, spent sulfuric acid, anhydrous ammonia, liquid sulfur dioxide, sodium hydroxide, sodium carbonate, diethanolamine, etc. This facility is also a shipping terminal for hydrochloric acid. The PVS Chemicals facility has the potential-to-emit sulfur dioxide at a rate greater than 250 tons per year and sulfuric acid mist at a rate greater than 100 tons per year but less than 250 tons per year. These emission rates are above the major source thresholds of 100 tons per year. Therefore, the facility requires this Title V operating permit. This Title V facility permit for PVS Chemicals contains all of the air emission sources at the facility organized as emission units. Each of the emission units contains emission sources with similar air pollution control requirements. All applicable air pollution control requirements are listed in this permit along with the appropriate monitoring, record keeping and reporting necessary to determine the compliance status of the facility. 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 Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 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 comment period, the EPA will have an additional 45 days to review the draft or modified draft permit. If the EPA does not raise any objection in that time, the Department may then issue the final draft permit as the Title V Permit.
