Facility: Kodak Park Division

Application ID: 8-2614-00205/01836
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Rochester, Monroe County
Project Description:
The Department has received an application from Eastman Kodak Company for an Air State Facility Permit to operate a new Emission Unit (EU) U0024A, to include new and modified emission sources in Building 317 of the Kodak Park Facility in the City of Rochester and the Town of Greece, in Monroe County.  

EU U0024A will include new and modified equipment to be connected to the existing 305 film casting machine.  With regard to 40 CFR Part 52.21 Subpart A Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD), and 6 NYCRR Part 231-2 New Source Review (NSR) in Ozone Transport Regions, this modification is significant due to a potential increase in emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) of over 40 tons per year.

To restrict the potential VOC emission increase to below the 40 ton per year PSD and NSR threshold, Kodak has agreed to Draft Permit conditions which will limit EU U0024A VOC emissions to 66.3 tons per year on a rolling 12 month basis.  To verify compliance, Kodak must maintain monthly records of VOC in coating materials delivered to the coating machine, the quantity of VOC used for cleaning, and calculate monthly and rolling 12 month emission totals based on this information and VOC capture and control efficiency.

In addition, some of the sources included in EU U0024A are subject to 6 NYCRR Part 212 Best Available Control Technology (BACT) requirements for emissions of methylene chloride.  In order to satisfy BACT requirements, Kodak submitted a BACT evaluation which concluded that additional emission controls for methylene chloride, for those sources in EU U0024A and other associated 305 film casting machine sources, are not cost effective.  Based on this evaluation, a maximum emission limit for EU U0024A of 70.2 tons per year of methylene chloride is established in the Draft Permit.  This represents 93.4 percent capture and control of methylene chloride emissions from the processes exhausted by EU U0024A, achieved by 96 percent control of emissions from the largest EU  U0024A source, and is a reduction from the 106 tons per year of methylene chloride emissions previously authorized for the preexisting EU U0024A sources.  To verify compliance, Kodak must maintain a monthly log of methylene chloride input to U0024A coating operations, and calculate monthly and rolling 12 month emission totals based on input and methylene chloride capture and control efficiency.  

VOC and methylene chloride emission records for EU U0024A are to be maintained at the Kodak Park facility for a minimum of five years and must be made available with supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

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