Application ID: 6-4058-00003/00371
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: St Lawrence County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve the application of Alcoa Massena Operations (West Plant), a producer of primary and secondary aluminum.  The permit temporarily renames the emission unit under which this source is designated. The requirements of this permit are in addition to or the same as the requirements in the Title V permit for this source. The permit application is to rebuild a reverberatory aluminum furnace, which will include larger burners designed to produce less Oxides of Nitrogen. The project has capped out of NOx RACT requirements and remains below applicability thresholds for PSD and NSR as an existing source. New requirements under 40 CFR 63 Subpart RRR for secondary aluminum production also do not apply. The furnace remains an existing source in an existing SAPU. The permit also requires the submission of a NOx RACT analysis in order to remove the capping requirements. These changes will then be rolled into the Title V permit within 1 year.
