Application ID: 8-0734-00029/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Horseheads, Chemung County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve an application for modification of the SPDES permit for the Toshiba Display Devices, Inc. facility in Horseheads, NY to add a new effluent limit and monitoring requirement for Total Organic Halogens at outfall 001.  Outfall 001 is a sampling point located just prior to a storm sewer which discharges to a tributary of Newtown Creek, off of Chemung Street, just east of the plant. The modification is a result of a request to add a new biocide, Biosperse 3010 to the cooling towers. In addition, the Department is proposing a modification to change the acute toxicity testing to chronic toxicity testing because the effluent flow exceeds 5 percent of the total flow of the receiving stream. The application materials and draft permit are available for review and comment at the regional office.

Painted Post, NY 14870-
Application ID: 8-4642-00108/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Erwin, Steuben County
Project Description:
The Department has received an application from Corning Incorporated for an Air State Facility Permit to authorize construction of a new 403,000 square foot manufacturing plant.  To be known as the Corning Inc - Erwin Diesel Facility, it will produce ceramic filters and substrates for diesel engine emission control devices, and will be located at 9261Addison Road (NYS Route 417) in the Town of Erwin, Steuben County.

Due to potential emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in excess of 50 tons per year and hydrogen fluoride (HF) in excess of 10 tons per year, the plant will meet the definition of a Major Source in 6 NYCRR Part 201-2.1(b)(21) and be subject to regulations as specified in 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 Title V Facility Permits, Part 231 New Source Review  (NSR) in Ozone Transport Regions, and  40CFR63 Subpart B maximum achievable control technology (MACT) requirements.  Within a year of the start of operations, Corning Inc will be required to submit a complete Title V application as specified in 6 NYCRR Part 201-6.

Facility operations will include raw materials processing, ceramic extrusion, drying ovens, cutting and shaping, and kiln firing of the fabricated ceramic items.

The Draft Air State Facility Permit, as will the eventual Title V Facility Permit, includes Special Permit Conditions to restrict facility emissions of:
       Oxides of nitrogen (NOx) to 99 tons per year, below the 6NYCRR Part 231-2.2 NSR threshold of 100          tons per year;
       VOC to 122 tons per year, the level of emissions authorized by the emission offsets obtained for this             facility pursuant to 6NYCRR Part 231-2.9;
       Particulates, to 249 tons per year, below the 250 ton per year threshold for 40CFR 52.21, Subpart A              Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) for new facilities in compliance areas.

In accordance with Part 231-2.2 NSR requirements for VOC, Corning Inc has obtained VOC emission offsets 1.15 times the facility's proposed 122 ton per year VOC emission potential.  VOC emissions from the ceramic kilns will be controlled by Thermal oxidizers to achieve "Lowest Achievable Emission Rate" (LAER).  Emissions of HF, subject to MACT requirements, will be controlled by wet and dry scrubbers.

The application and Draft Permit is available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.

Project is Located: Galen, Wayne County
Project Description:
The applicant has proposed to mine topsoil and sand from a 175 acre Life of Mine within a 205 acre parcel located northwest of, and bounded by, the intersection of Rose Valley Road and NYS Route 31.
