Endicott, NY 13760
Application ID: 7-0346-00032/00209
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Union, Broome County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve an application from Endicott Interconnect Technologies (EIT), 1701 North Street, Endicott, NY to modify their Air Title V permit.  

EIT manufactures printed circuit boards and laminate chip carriers.  The facility operates a power house consisting of four large boilers (all about 150 mmBtu/hr heat input), each of which is capable of burning either No. 6 oil or natural gas.  EIT is restricted from burning No. 6 oil except during periods when natural gas is not available.

EIT wishes to eliminate No. 6 oil from the site, permanently; to do so, they would combust the fuel.  In place of No. 6 oil, they want to bring No. 2 oil on-site.  There will be no restrictions on burning No. 2 oil.

Emissions of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) from No. 6 oil combustion exceed the NOx Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) limit.  While burning No. 6 oil,  EIT will comply with the Departmentís NOx RACT rule on a system-wide basis by combusting natural gas during the same averaging period as when No. 6 oil is combusted. Emissions from natural gas combustion are below the Nox RACT limit and will offset the higher emissions when No. 6 oil is combusted.

Once No. 6 oil is gone, EIT will be allowed to combust No. 2 oil, provided that NOx emissions from oil combustion are in compliance with the Nox RACT presumptive limit which is based on a one-hour average.

DEC has requested  EPA Region 2 to review potential applicability to EPAís Prevention of Significant Deterioration regulation.  The PSD rules were revised in December, 2002 and DEC is not currently delegated authority to implement the new PSD rules.

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 public 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 web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm
