Application ID: 4-3814-00005/00017
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Rensselaer, Rensselaer County
Project Description:
The Department has received a  Title V Facility (ATV) permit modification application from TransMontaigne, Inc. for a facility located at Riverside Avenue, Rensselaer, NY.  The owner is TransMontaigne, Inc. located at Denver, CO. This facility is a bulk gasoline and fuel oil storage and distribution facility.  The facility has large above ground gasoline and distillate oil storage tanks.  The facility has a gasoline tanker truck loading rack from which emissions are controlled by a flare.  This modification requests to increase previous annual thruput limits of gasoline and distillate oil.
The applicant has proposed restricting the potential to emit (PTE) of these emission sources through enforceable permit conditions which will limit or cap emissions at a level which is less than 10 tons per year for each individual Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP) and less than 25 tons per year for the total of all HAPs–the applicability threshold for 40CFR63, subpart R, the National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for gasoline distribution facilities.  
Similarly, the applicant has proposed restricting the PTE through enforceable permit conditions which will limit or cap the difference between future potential and prior actual emissions to less than 40 tons per year for VOCthe significant source project threshold of 6 NYCRR 2312 – New Source Review in Nonattainment Areas and Ozone Transport Regions,
By accepting these state and federally enforceable limits, the facility is not subject to these particular regulations.  The permittee is required to maintain records, including the thruput of gasoline and fuel oil loaded, and to report this data to verify compliance with permit conditions and limits.  
Persons wishing to inspect the subject ATV 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 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor 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.
