Applicant: Carver Inc

Altamont, NY 12009-
Facility: Carver Stone- Asphalt Plant
Settles Hill Rd
Duanesburg, NY -
Application ID: 4-4220-00136/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Duanesburg, Schenectady County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft State Facility Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control Regulations) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) for a Stone Asphalt Plant proposed by the applicant.  The proposed facility will be located in the Town of Duanesburg with the entrance to the facility on the west side of Settles Hill Road in the Town of  Princetown.  Carver Stone is engaged in the manufacturing asphaltic concrete for the construction of roadways, driveways and other uses.  Two emission units will be operated at this facility.  The first emission point (100001) will be for a hot mix asphalt plant which consists of an asphalt mixing tower, cold feed system, dryer, cyclone and baghouse filtration and ancillary support equipment.  The second emission point (200002) will be for a diesel-fueled generator to provide power for the asphalt plant.

The applicant has proposed modifications for limiting the potential to emit for both emission units through enforceable permit conditions which will cap the carbon monoxide emissions at a level which is below the 100 tons per year applicability threshold for Title V requirements.  By accepting these state and federally enforceable limits, the facility will not be subject to Title V requirements.

The applicant has agreed to permit conditions which will limit emissions of carbon monoxide to 70 tons per year by limiting the hours of operation to 2000 per year.  Daily records will be maintained on site for the most recent five year period in a format acceptable to the department.  Carbon monoxide emissions will be rolled on a monthly basis and cannot exceed 70 tons over any 12 consecutive month period.  The application is available for review at the Region 4 office until the deadline date for comments specified in this notice.
