Application ID: 9-0424-00027/00010
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Carrollton, Cattaraugus County
Project Description:
The Department has drafted an Air State Facility Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law for the National Fuel Gas Supply Corporation Limestone Compressor Station.  The installation of a fourth natural gas compressor engine at the facility in 1996 allowed the applicant to discontinue and remove three others from the site.  This has resulted in 30.4 tons per year (tpy) of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emission reduction credits (ERCs) for use elsewhere and 1.3 tpy ERCs of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC).  The draft permit with conditions is available for review at the Region 9 Buffalo Office of NYSDEC.

Buffalo, NY 14231-0565
Facility: Gemus Inc
65 Clyde Ave
Buffalo, NY 14215-
Application ID: 9-1402-00934/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Buffalo, Erie County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve the application of Gemus, Inc. to  produce Cream of Tartar by extracting tartaric acid from grape juice and wine processing waste. The draft permit establishes federally enforceable limits for hydrogen chloride, a hazardous air pollutant (HAP) at 9.5 tons per year (tpy), which is below the 10 tpy threshold for any individual HAP. By accepting this limit the company avoids the requirements of 6NYCRR Subpart 201-6, Title V Permits.  The application and draft Air State Facility Permit are available for review during normal business hours at the regional office.
