Facility: Fmc Corp - Active Oxidants
37 Sawyer Avenue
Tonawanda, NY 14150
Application ID: 9-1464-00040/00110
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Tonawanda, Erie County
Project Description:
The Department has drafted an Air State Facility Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this application for FMC Corporation's chemical manufacturing facility located at 35 Sawyer Avenue where persulfates and peracetic acid are produced using batch and continuous processes.  The facility operates three boilers, each rated at 49.8 MM Btu/hr.  Boilers 1 and 2 are equiped to fire either No. 6 fuel oil or natural gas.  Boiler 3 burns No. 6 fuel oil only.  If all three boilers were used concurrently and continuously with No. 6 fuel oil, the emissions of Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) would exceed the major facility thresholds for both contaminants.  The draft permit contains conditions which limit the facility's ability to emit NOx and SO2 to less than the major facility threshold value of 100 tons per year of each contaminant.  The facility-wide NOx emissions have been also been capped below the applicability threshold of 6 NYCRR Part 227-2, Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) for NOx, which is 100 tons of NOx per year.  The facility-wide SO2 emissions  have also been capped below the applicability threshold of 40 CFR 52.21, Subpart A, Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD), which is 100 tons of SO2 per year.  The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials, and regulations are available  for review during normal business hours at the Region 9 Office of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation in Buffalo.
