Orleans County

Applicant: SAINT-GOBAIN Technical Fabrics America Inc
PO Box 860
Valley Forge, PA 19482 -0860
Facility: SAINT-GOBAIN Technical Fabrics Group
14770 East Ave
Albion, NY 14411
Application ID: 8-3420-00010/00103
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Albion, Orleans County
Project Description:
Saint-Gobain Technical Fabrics Group has submitted an application for a modification of its current Title V Facility Permit for its Albion Facility, located at 14770 East Ave in the Village of Albion.  The facility manufactures coated fiberglass and polyester construction fabrics.  Facility Emission Units (EU) are: B-00001 for 2 boilers; and F-00001, F-00002, and F-00003 for fabric forming and coating.  Potential volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from this facility exceeded 250 tons per year, and potential hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions exceeded 25 tons per year, when the original Title V Facility Permit was issued on September 19, 2000.

This is the second modification of this Title V Facility Permit, and is a major modification. The previous modification, adding some equipment, was minor, that is, not subject to any additional regulations and did not change significant permit conditions such as those which establish an emissions limit or cap.

This second modification consists of the following:

1.  The addition of 8 new fabric forming and coating sources to EU F-00003.
2.  The installation of a regenerative thermal oxidizer to control VOC emissions from EU F-00003.
3.  Special Permit Conditions to cap the EU F-00003 potential to emit VOC at 102.7 tons per year, below the 40 ton per year increase threshold of 6NYCRR Part 231 New Source Review in Ozone Transport Regions, based on previous actual emissions of 63.7 tons per year.
4.  Special Permit Conditions to cap facility potentials to emit HAP at 9.9 tons per year of any single HAP and 24.9 tons per year for all HAP combined.  These will restrict HAP emissions to below the Major Source applicability thresholds of 10 tons per year of any single HAP, and 25 tons per year of all HAP  combined, of 40 CFR 63 Subpart OOOO for fabric coating operations and 40 CFR 63 Subpart DDDDD for industrial boilers.

The increase in potential VOC emissions is restricted by limitations on annual coating use, and the operation of the regenerative thermal oxidizer.  Emissions of HAP are restricted by limitations on annual coating use.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 2016.4(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
