Bronx, NY 10462-5506
Application ID: 2-6005-00113/00009
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Bronx, Bronx County
Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application. The existing flexographic printing facility, MTP Industries, located at 1180 Commerce Avenue, Bronx, NY 10462, was issued a Title V permit on November 1, 2000. The operation of two six-color flexographic presses was covered under that permit. One of these units is a 36-inch press, the other is a 45-inch press. The facility operates a catalytic fume incinerator from April 1 through October 31 of each calendar year. The primary pollutants emitted from this facility are volatile organic compounds (VOCs). During calendar years 1998-1999, the facility emitted an average of 23.5 tons per year of VOCs. The facility has applied for a modified Title V permit in order to operate an additional 45-inch, six-color flexographic press. The facility has agreed to limit their emissions of VOCs to 46 tons per year facility wide. The corresponding net VOC emission increase will be limited to 22.5 tons per year. As a result of limiting the net emission increase to 22.5 tons per year, the facility is able to avoid the requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 231-2, nonattainment new source review. The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the DEC office provided in this notice. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicated. DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon an evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised. Hearing notices will contain instructions on filing for party status and submitting comments. Certification reports submitted by the facility are also available for review. In accordance with 6 NYCRR 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 6 NYCRR Part 201.

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for an existing Con Edison facility located at 700 First Avenue, New York 10017, Waterside Station, that produces electricity and steam.

The boilers combust residual oil, distillate oil and natural gas, or any combination thereof. Electricity is generated by three steam-driven turbines. The emissions from these boilers are released to the atmosphere through two stacks. Boilers 61 and 62 are served by a 460-foot stack (Emission Point No. 2). Boilers 80 and 90 are also served by a 460-foot stack (Emission Point No. 3). Also included at the facility and in the permit are vapor extractors that prevent a buildup of hydrogen in the turbine lubricating oil reservoir.

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to construct new combined sewer conduits parallel to existing combined sewers along reaches of 53rd and 56th Avenues, Luke Place, Bell Boulevard and 217th Street in the area west of the intersection of Springfield Boulevard and 56th Avenue and install additional catch basins in selected areas along 46th and 56th Avenues, Springfield Boulevard, Bell Boulevard and Luke Place.
