Application ID: 4-0122-00007/00719
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Bethlehem, Albany County
Project Description:
The Department has received a Title V Application from the General Electric Company (GE) Selkirk Plastics facility located in the hamlet of Selkirk in Albany County, New York, approximately 8 miles southwest of Albany, NY.   The facility owner is the General Electric Company located at 3135 Easton Turnpike, Fairfield, CT 06431.  The plastics production facility which manufactures monomer (a chemical compound used to manufacture plastic) is on a 700 acre site of which 60 acres are industrialized.  Monomer is either produced (SIC 2869) from raw materials or purchased. The monomers are polymerized to form plastic resins. Manufactured and purchased resins are compounded at the facility by adding colorants and other ingredients to provide desired properties. The facility includes continuous and batch processes, a packaging operation, an energy recovery boiler, and a waste water treatment plant, which operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

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 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 requestor 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 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’s wed site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

The permit application and draft permit are available for review at the Region 4 office. Comments will be received for 30 days from the date of this notice.  If comments are received which raise significant issues or provide additional relevant information, the Department may modify the Draft modified Title V Facility Permit.

In accordance with 6 NYCRR Parts 621.5 (d) 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 the applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6 NYCRR Part 201.
