Seneca County

Applicant: Scepter Inc
1485 Scepter Ln
Waverly, TN 37185 -3290
Facility: Scepter Inc. - Seneca Falls Operations
11 Lamb Road
Seneca Falls, NY 13148
Application ID: 8-4532-00105/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Seneca Falls, Seneca County
Project Description:
The Department has received an Air State Facility application from Scepter Inc for the expansion of its scrap aluminum processing operations at its Seneca Falls Facility, located at 11 Lamb Road in the Village of Seneca Falls.  Facility operations include loading and melting of scrap aluminum and fluxing agents, casting of aluminum ingots, and handling and disposal of the waste “salt cake”, which is the fluxing agent combined with impurities.  The expansion involves the addition of 2 new furnaces to the single Facility Emission Unit, 1-FURNS.

Four furnaces were authorized in the original Air State Facility Permit issued August 31, 1998, but two of the four were not built at the time of original construction.  After February 11, 1999, the addition of new furnaces became subject to the secondary aluminum national emission standard for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) requirements of 40 CFR 63 Subpart RRR.  The present permit, issued prior to that date, does not include 40 CFR 63 Subpart RRR requirements for the two furnaces to be added, making modification of the permit necessary to allow Scepter to construct and operate the third and fourth furnaces.

As part of this application Scepter has proposed to limit the amount of scrap aluminum processed to restrict facility emissions, and the Department has added Special Permit Conditions to the Draft Permit, as follows:

Emissions of total particulates will continue to be limited to less than the 6NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) threshold of 100 tons per year, as in the initial Air State Facility Permit.

Emissions of hydrogen chloride (HCl) in the modified permit will be limited to less than 10 tons per year, to restrict facility hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions below the Part 201-6 (Title V) threshold of 10 tons per year of any individual HAP compound, and 25 tons per year of all HAP combined.

Emissions of ammonia (NH3) from acid gas control devices will be limited to 145 tons per year in the modified permit to keep concentrations below the Department’s air guideline concentration (AGC) for any off site receptor.

Emissions of hydrogen fluoride (HF)  in the modified permit will be limited to 0.265 pounds per hour (1.16 tons per year) to ensure compliance with HF standards in 6NYCRR Part 257-8.

In addition, Special Permit Conditions  in the modified permit will expand facility monitoring to ensure compliance with Part 212.4c particulate, and Part 212.6a opacity standards.

Finally, 40 CFR 63 Subpart RRR NESHAP requirements in the modified permit include stack testing for dioxins and furans for the two new furnaces.  Dioxin and furan stack testing showed emissions from the two existing furnaces in compliance with the NESHAP standard.

To verify that the facility is in compliance with Special Permit Conditions to restrict emissions, Scepter will be required to maintain a monthly log of aluminum processed and flux use at the entire facility, calculate monthly and 12 month rolling totals of emissions, and report emissions to the Department annually.   Emissions records are to be maintained at the facility for a minimum of five years, and made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

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