ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 02/13/2002

Monroe County
Applicant: Eastman Kodak Co
343 State Street
Rochester, NY 14650-
Facility: Kodak Park Division
1669 Lake Ave
Rochester, NY 14650-
Application ID: 8-2614-00205/01828
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Rochester, Monroe County
Project Description:
The Department has received an application from Eastman Kodak Company for an Air State Facility Permit to authorize construction of a new Emission Unit (EU) U00084, at the Kodak Park Facility located in the City of Rochester and the Town of Greece, in Monroe County.  EU U00084 will include pilot scale experimental coating operations of paper, plastic, and metal, and will be located in Building 308 of the Kodak Park Facility.

The Draft Permit includes a permit condition which will limit volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions to 39.98 tons per year on a rolling 12 month basis.  This will cap EU U00084 to below the 40 ton per year applicability thresholds specified for an existing Major Stationary Source in 6 NYCRR Part 231-2 - New Source Review (NSR) in Ozone Transport Regions, and 40 CFR 52.21 Subpart A - Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD).  To verify compliance with this condition, Kodak must maintain a monthly log of VOC brought into the Building 308 pilot coating facility as a raw material or solution during the month, minus liquid waste VOC, and calculate monthly and rolling 12 month emission totals.   All records must be kept on site for a minimum of five years, and be available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

Also as part of this application, Kodak has requested an alternate VOC emission limit for the EU U00084 mixing, drying and storage operations which vent to Emission Point 308B7, to comply with 6 NYCRR Part 212 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) requirements.  Kodak has agreed to an upper limit of 12 tons per year of total VOC emissions from these processes.  This limit is based on the RACT evaluation provided by Kodak which concluded that emission controls for these processes are not cost effective.   

In addition, sources included in EU U00084 are subject to 6 NYCRR Part 212 Best Available Control Technology (BACT) requirements for emissions of acetone and chlorine.  In order to satisfy this requirement, Kodak submitted a BACT evaluation which concluded that emission controls for these contaminants are not cost effective.  Based on this evaluation, maximum emission limits of 4.38 tons per year of acetone and 0.305 tons per year of chlorine are established in the Draft Permit.

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

Application ID: 8-4648-00001/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Hartsville, Steuben County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to renew and modify an existing Mined Land Reclamation permit for the 11 acre sand and gravel mine within a +/- 161 acre parcel east of Ashbaugh Road in the Town of Hartsville. The project site is located approximately 1/4 miles east of Ashbaugh Road, and 2 miles north of the intersection of Ashbaugh and Hinkley Hill Roads. The applicant proposes to add 16.7 acres to the Life of Mine.

Operation of the mine will continue as a traditional surface extraction of sand and gravel, with no mining proposed for below the local water table. Excavation will be by mechanical equipment, and will remove approximately 5000 cubic yards of material over the estimated 30 year operational life of the mine. Material processing on site is limited to crushing and screening. Final reclamation will restore the site to wildlife meadow and will include the replacement of stockpiled topsoil and reseeding. Application materials are available for public review and comment at the Regional Office of the NYS DEC.
