Application ID: 8-2699-00065/01751
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Greece, Monroe County
Project Description:
The Department has received an Air State Facility application from NexPress Solutions LLC for expanded operations, which include metal part coating and printer toner and developer production, at its facility located in buildings 82, 83, 308, and 349 of Kodak Park in the City of Rochester and Town of Greece, Monroe County.
As part of the application, NexPress has agreed to Special Permit Conditions which will restrict facility hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions to below the applicability thresholds of 6NYCRR Part 2016 (Title V) for a Major Stationary Source.  These restrictions will limit potentials to emit HAP compounds methylene chloride, methanol, 1,1,2 trichloroethane, and tetrahydrofuran to less than 10 tons per year each, and all HAP compounds combined to less than 25 tons per year.  The HAP 1,1,2 trichloroethane will be further limited to 1.25 tons per year, to remain below the Departmentís guideline concentration at any off site location.

NexPress has also agreed to Special Permit Conditions to restrict emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) to less than the 10 ton per year applicability threshold of 6NYCRR Part 228 Surface Coating Processes regulations.

This facility was previously able to cap by rule pursuant to 6NYCRR Part 201-7.3, due to emissions less than 50 percent of the thresholds above.

To verify compliance, NexPress must maintain a log of VOC, individual HAP compounds, and total HAP input to its coating operations, and calculate annual emission totals.  All records must be kept on site for a minimum of five years, and must be made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

In addition, sources at the NexPress facility are subject to 6 NYCRR Part 212 Best Available Control Technology (BACT) requirements for emissions of methylene chloride. In order to satisfy this requirement, NexPress submitted a BACT evaluation which concluded that emission control for methylene chloride would not be cost effective.  The facility also completed ambient air modeling which demonstrated that the increase in methylene chloride emissions will not cause off site concentrations to exceed the Departmentís ambient air limits.  Based on these evaluations, a maximum emission limit of 9.1 tons per year of methylene chloride is established in the Draft Permit, with emissions of methylene chloride to be phased out by the end of the year 2004.  

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.
