Applicant: Wyeth Pharmaceuticals Inc

Rouses Point, NY 12979-1424
Facility: Wyeth Pharmaceuticals
64 Maple St
Rouses Point, NY 12979-
Application ID: 5-0928-00017/00291
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Champlain, Clinton County
Project Description:
The Department has developed a draft permit and is prepared to issue a modified permit in response to Wyeth-Ayerst's application for a significant modification to their existing Title V operating permit. The requested modifications will establish the following federally enforceable emission caps; 1. A limit of 9.5 tons per year(tpy) facility-wide for any single Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP), and 2. A facility-wide limit of 24.5 tpy for combined HAPs. Compliance with these caps will be achieved to a large extent by controlling HAP emissions from several existing process sources using a proposed new Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer(RTO) and caustic scrubber system. This permit will establish a new emission unit, 0-00013, consisting of two Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers(RTOs), each equipped with a caustic scrubber, that will be used alternately or simultaneously to reduce emissions. The new facility-wide cap on HAP emissions eliminates the need for existing process or source specific HAP caps previously established to prevent those processes or sources from being subject to new source requirements contained in 40CFR 63, Subpart GGG. Therefore, existing conditions containing those capping provisions are being either revised or eliminated as appropriate. In addition, many existing conditions are being grouped in this permit to make the permit more readable. A copy of the draft revised Title V permit can be reviewed at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dardata/boss/afs/draft_atv_e.html.

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 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.), unless the requester 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 Warrensburg DEC 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 2016.4(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.
