Application ID: 2-6005-00113/00009
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Bronx, Bronx County
Project Description:

 The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application. The existing flexographic printing facility, MTP Industries, located at 1180 Commerce Avenue, Bronx, NY 10462, was issued a Title V permit on November 1, 2000. The operation of two six-color flexographic presses was covered under that permit. One of these units is a 36-inch press, the other is a 45-inch press. The facility operates a catalytic fume incinerator from April 1 through October 31 of each calendar year. The primary pollutants emitted from this facility are volatile organic compounds (VOCs). During calendar years 1998-1999, the facility emitted an average of 23.5 tons per year of VOCs. The facility has applied for a modified Title V permit in order to operate an additional 45-inch, six-color flexographic press. The facility has agreed to limit their emissions of VOCs to 46 tons per year facility wide. The corresponding net VOC emission increase will be limited to 22.5 tons per year. As a result of limiting the net emission increase to 22.5 tons per year, the facility is able to avoid the requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 231-2, nonattainment new source review. The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the DEC office provided in this notice.  In accordance with 6 NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) 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 applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6 NYCRR Part 201.

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 listed below. It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject 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 public 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 Law exist. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at:
