Applicant: Dolomite Products Co Inc

Rochester, NY 14625 -2202
Facility: Rochester Asphalt Penfield Plt
746 Whalen Rd
Penfield, NY 14526
Application ID: 8-2642-00029/00011
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Penfield, Monroe County
Project Description:
The Department has received an Air State Facility application from Dolomite Products Co Inc d/b/a Rochester Asphalt Materials, to authorize changes to existing equipment at its Penfield Plant, located at 746 Whalen Road in the Town of Penfield.

Dolomite Products proposes to replace a 3 ton asphalt batch plant and a 4 ton batch plant with a single 6 ton asphalt batch plant.  The application includes a request to maintain the present cap on the facility’s potential to emit contaminants below the thresholds of 6 NYCRR Part 2016 (Title V) for Major Stationary Sources and 6 NYCRR Part 212.10 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) for Major Facilities. Revised Special Permit Conditions will limit annual asphalt production to 495,000 tons, which will restrict carbon monoxide (CO) emissions to less than 100 tons per year. Since CO is the contaminant emitted at the highest rate by asphalt batch plant production, the production limit also restricts emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), particulate matter (PM), and volatile organic compounds (VOC), to less than the thresholds in Part 2016 (Title V) and Part 212 RACT, of 100 tons per year each for SO2, NOx, and PM, and 50 tons per year for VOC.  

To verify compliance, Dolomite Products will be required to maintain logs of monthly asphalt production, 12 month rolling totals of asphalt production, and calculations of annual emissions.  Records are to be maintained for a minimum of five years, and must be made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

Also as part of this application, Dolomite Products has proposed to use waste oil, classified as “Waste Fuel A” in 6 NYCRR Part 225, as a fuel, in addition to natural gas and #2 fuel oil.  Waste Fuel A does not contain chemical waste and is subject to contaminant limitations specified in Part 225-2.4(b).  For all 3 fuels, the contaminant emitted at the greatest rate remains CO.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.
