Washington County

Applicant: Hollingsworth & Vose Co
112 Washington St
East Walpole, MA 02032 -1098
Facility: Hollingsworth & Vose Greenwich Mill
Rt 29
Greenwich, NY 12834
Application ID: 5-5334-00006/00035
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Greenwich, Washington County
Project Description:
The Department has drafted and is prepared to issue a modified Title V facility permit for Hollingsworth & Vose's Greenwich plant. This permit modification is for the replacement of the existing oil fired 20 mmBtu boiler with a new dual fuel fired 25 mmBtu boiler unit. The new boiler is subject to 40 CFR 60, New Source Performance Standards Subpart Dc and will fire No. 6 fuel oil or propane gas. Fuel oil certifications will ensure that the fuel oil sulfur content is less than .5 of one percent by weight. This brings actual potential SO2 emissions from the facility  below the 250 ton per year major source threshold for applicability of the federal Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) rule. As such, the previous PSD fuel cap is no longer required.                    To address formaldehyde concerns and fulfill requirements of the existing Order on Consent, emissions from emission points 011A6, 011A7 and 011A8 have been combined and will be exhausted through a new taller stack (EP 011CS).  In addition to the above referenced modifications the Department has revised the language and format of certain mandatory conditions that will be included in this permit.   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
