Applicant: Corning Inc
Hp-Me-02-50
Corning, NY 14831
Facility: Corning Inc - Fallbrook Plant
Tioga Ave - Ty-Fb-01-1
Corning, NY 14831
Application ID: 8-4603-00008/00070
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Corning, Steuben County
Project Description:
The Department has received an application described as follows, and will approve it unless comments received by the date specified at the end of this notice raise significant issues not addressed by the application.

The application, by Corning Inc, is to establish certified Emission Reduction Credits (ERC)  in accordance with 6 NYCRR Part 231 New Source Review in Ozone Transport Regions.  These ERC are based on the permanent shutdown, effective November 22, 2002, of the Fallbrook Plant, located on Tioga Avenue in the City of Corning.

The Fallbrook Plant produced borosilicate, alumina silicate, and lead glasses, and fabricated glass tubing and electron gun necks.  It was subject to 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) due to potential emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), total particulates, and particulates smaller than 10 microns (PM10) in excess of 100 tons per year each; total hazardous air pollutants (HAP) in excess of 25 tons per year; and individual HAP compounds  hydrogen fluoride (HF) and hydrogen chloride (HCl) in excess of 10 tons per year each.

The ERC from the Fallbrook Plant shutdown will be certified for 187.03 tons per year of oxides of nitrogen (NOX), to be used as emission offsets at the Corning Canton Plant in the Town of DeKalb in St. Lawrence County.

The ERC will be certified with Conditions that identify the source and quantity of the NOX ERC, and that prevent future operation of emission sources at the Fallbrook Plant.

The application is available for review at the both the Department of Environmental Conservation Central Office in Albany, and the Region 8 Department of Environmental Conservation Office in Avon.
