Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Fayette, Seneca County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to modify their existing 396 acre limestone mine.  The modification consists of a 26.8 acre expansion on the west/southwest side of the existing quarry.  The project site is the applicant’s property north of County Road 121, west of Hoster Road and east of Rt 414 and Reed Lane.  The mine operates as a traditional surface extraction of limestone by drill and blast methodology.  Mining will not occur below the local water table.  No other changes are proposed for the mining operation.

Corning, NY 14831
Facility: Erwin Manufacturing Complex
Addison - South Hamilton Road
Erwin, NY 14870
Application ID: 8-4642-00009/00109
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Erwin, Steuben County
Project Description:
Corning Inc has submitted an application for a modification of its current Title V Facility Permit for its Erwin Manufacturing Complex, located on Addison - South Hamilton Road in the Town of Erwin.  The facility manufactures ceramic filter substrates for catalytic emission control units for gasoline and diesel engines.

The modification is proposed for existing Emission Unit (EU) U-00001 venting two automotive ceramic filter production lines.  It involves the installation of a new scrubber to control hydrogen fluoride (HF) emissions to allow simultaneous firing of “high fluorine” raw materials in more than one kiln, and an increase in burner capacity to upgrade an existing thermal oxidizer emissions control device.

Emissions from EU U-00001 were previously restricted to below 6 NYCRR Part 231 New Source Review (NSR) and 40 CFR 52 Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) significance thresholds by emission caps, established in a permit issued to authorize modifications on September 24, 1999.  The 1999 permit restricted emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) to 61.2 tons per year, oxides of nitrogen (NOx) to 79.89 tons per year, particulate matter smaller than 10 microns (PM10) to 24.34 tons per year, and total particulate matter (PM) to 34.34 tons per year.  These limits were based on previous operations, the NSR significant increase thresholds of 40 tons per year each for VOC and NOx, and the PSD significant increase thresholds of 15 tons per year of PM10, and 25 tons per year of PM.

Potential increases in facility emissions of NOx, PM10, and PM, due to this latest proposed modification, exceed NSR and PSD significance thresholds.  As part of this application, Corning Inc has agreed to Special Permit Conditions to restrict NOx, PM10, and PM emission increases to below NSR and PSD thresholds.  Since potential increases are based on present emission levels which were below the previously established emission caps, this will result in a reduction of allowable emissions from EU U-00001.  NOx emissions will be restricted to 44.88 tons per year, PM10 emissions restricted to 17.95 tons per year, and PM emissions restricted to 27.95 tons per year. The present cap for VOC will remain unchanged at 61.2 tons per year.

Additionally, VOC and HF monitoring requirements at this facility will be updated to reflect completed testing specified in the original Title V Permit, and additional particulate monitoring requirements will be imposed.  

The application is available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.
