ENB Region 7 Completed Applications 01/08/2003

Chenango County

Applicant: Raymond Corp
PO Box 130
South Canal St
Greene, NY 13778 -0130
Facility: Raymond Corporation
Wheeler Street
Greene, NY 13778
Application ID: 7-0830-00037/00025
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Greene, Chenango County
Project Description:
    The DEC is proposing to amend the Air Title V permit for Raymond Corporation.  The amendment establishes emissions caps for all HAP (Hazardous Air Pollutants), thus making the facility a “minor” facility for purposes of applicability to the miscellaneous metal parts surface coating National Emission Standard For Hazarous Air Pollutants.  The modification also requires that modeling be performed to assess compliance with 6 NYCRR Part 212.

    Raymond Corporation manufactures fork lift trucks.  The primary sources of emissions are paint spray booths.  There are no VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions controls on the booths; Raymond complies with DEC’s surface coating regulations by using low VOC-containing coatings.  Other operations (such as bench assembly) are very small sources of emissions.

    In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.

    Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V 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 listed 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:
