Application ID: 3-5522-00087/00019
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Cortlandt, Westchester County
Project Description:

      The Department has prepared a Draft 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 located in Buchanan, Westchester County.

     The Lafarge facility is required to obtain a Title V Permit as a major source due to its potential to emit oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOC's); each in excess of 25 typ (tons per year), and within a severe non-attainment area for ozone. It also has the potential to emit more than 250 tpy of particulate matter which is the dominant pollutant in gypsum processing plans. Much of this potential is controlled by integral parts of the manufacturing process; these controls collect the particulate emissions and put them back into the manufacturing process.

     This facility is a gypsum plant which produces bulk gypsum and wallboard. Gypsum rock is delivered to the facility by ship. Raw, reclaimed gypsum material and synthetic gypsum material can be stockpiled or sent directly to processing. The first step in the process is the raw, reclaimed gypsum material and synthetic gypsum in the primary crusher. The crushed gypsum is then conveyed to the raymond roller mills which provide final grinding of the rock.The free moisture in the rock is removed in the roller mill flash dryers, which are direct-fired heaters. The product of the roller mills, called landplaster, proceeds to the calcining kettles, where the chemically-bound water is removed. The kettles are indirectly heated and are capable of operating in either batch or continuous modes. The typical operating style at the Buchanan Plant is continuous. The product of the calcining kettles, called stucco, is then pneumatically conveyed to the board plant. Next, the stucco is conveyed to the board plant pin mixer. Depending upon the type of wallboard being produced, appropriate additives, including water, are mixed with the stucco in the pin mixer to produce a gypsum slurry. The slurry is extruded between two sheets of paper in the forming line. While traveling down the length of the forming line, the slurry hardens into wet wallboard. At the end of the forming, the wet wallboard is cut into varying lengths and inverted to protect the face of the board during drying. Finally, the boards are conveyed through the board dryer to drive off moisture and induce chemical bonding of the wallboard ingredients. The wallboard is finished with end saws and the exposed ends are sealed with tape. The wallboard is then stored until shipment off site.

     The Application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Regional Office of the NYSDEC.

     Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below. It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files. The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within 2 business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requester wishes to inspect the files at a later date.

     DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory. A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment. DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists. If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments. The applicant and all persons who have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing. Comments and requests for a legislative public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.

     An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination. An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exist. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.
