This is a Revised Notice of Complete Application and Extension of Public Comment Period

The applicant proposes to construct and operate a new 20" diameter by 4,300 foot long pneumatic conveyer pipeline to be located partially within the adjacent area of FWW HS-101, directly above the existing 16' line.  The new pipeline will allow for the receipt of finished cement product (GranCem/cementitious materials) by barge, and transport it to the facility’s “C” Silos for delivery to local customers by truck through two existing loading bays.   Only five of the 10 “C” silos will be capable of accepting the GranCem/cementitious material.  A new Emission Unit, U-00GCCT, consisting of equipment (converger, filter receiver, air lift, and alleviator) that transfers the cementitious material from the barges,  to the top of the “C” silos will be added, and emission units U-00D36, silo loading, and U-000D8, truck loading will be modified.  The on site manufacturing of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) of 652,000 tons per year, is expected to be unaffected by the change. The facility has a maximum through put of 605,000tpy of GranCem/cementitious material which would result in a maximum increase of 1.486 tpy of PM-10 and 2.731 TPY of PM over the facilities existing discharge of 215 tpy of PM-10 and 363 tpy of PM. It is expected that the facility will actually only bring in approximately 88,000tpy of GranCem/cementitious material and that the emissions figures will be much less.

St Lawrence Cement Co. is a Portland Cement manufacturing plant built in 1966 located on Route 9W, south of the Village of Catskill in the Town of Catskill, Greene County. This facility is a major source for Air Permitting, producing approximately 652,000 tons of cement per year and has a Title V Air permit from the Department.  The facility is on approximately 2248 acres of land which is on both sides of Route 9W.  The 1200 acre quarry is located on the west side of Route 9W and the plant and landfill are located on the east side of Route 9W with the docking facility located on the bank of the Hudson River.  The facility is a wet process plant utilizing a kiln fueled mainly by coal. Limestone mined at their quarry is crushed and combined with other raw materials and water in order to form a slurry which is then fed to the kiln. The slurry is heated in the kiln to produce clinker which is milled and blended with gypsum in a ball mill to produce the Portland Cement. The operations at this facility include quarrying, raw materials acquisition, handling and storage, bulk materials handling and storage, raw milling, kiln operation, finish milling, cement storage and loadout.

The facility is subject to regulations 6NYCRR Part 201, 202, 211, 212, 220, 225, 40CFR Part 63, -Subpart LLL. The Department has prepared a State Facility Preconstruction Permit  for the application that was received from the St. Lawrence Cement Company for their proposed new emission unit U-00GCT.
