Facility: Vulcraft of New York Inc

Chemung, NY 14825
Application ID: 8-0728-00033/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Chemung, Chemung County
Project Description:
Vulcraft of New York Inc has submitted an application for a Title V Facility Permit for its Chemung Plant, located at 5362 Railroad Street in the Town of Chemung.  The facility manufactures steel joists, bridging, and decking, and operations also include the application of anti-corrosion coatings.  Facility Emission Units (EU) are: P00001, venting steel joist and bridging welding operations, coating operations, dip tanks, and drying ovens; and P00002, venting steel deck production, cleaning, and coating operations.

The Vulcraft - Chemung Plant meets the definition of a Major Source in 6 NYCRR Part 2012.1(b)(21), and is subject to Part 2016 requirements for a Title V Facility Permit due to potential emissions of VOC in excess of 50 tons per year, and potential emissions of Glycol Ethers, a class of hazardous air pollutant (HAP), and total HAP compounds, in excess of 25 tons per year.  Plant construction was authorized by an Air State Facility Permit issued September 11, 2000.

Compliance with 40CFR 60 Subpart TT NSPS for Metal Coil Coating will limit VOC content in surface coatings for steel decking to 0.28 kg per liter (2.34 pounds per gallon) of coating solids applied.

Compliance with Part 231-2.5 lowest achievable emission rate (LAER) requirements will specify maximum VOC content in surface coatings, of 4.5 pounds per gallon of solids applied to steel joists, 1.25 pounds per gallon of solids applied to bridging materials, and 1 pound per gallon of solids applied to steel decking (below the Subpart TT limit above).

The basis of VOC emission limits above are changed from those imposed in the Air State Facility Permit issued September 11, 2000.   The previously issued limits were based on VOC emissions per ton of steel coated.  The current limits are based on a revised LAER determination, and specify maximum VOC content in coatings per gallon of non-VOC coating solids applied to the steel.  Certified VOC Emission Reduction Credits of 200.05 tons per year have been obtained and used for this Permit for emissions not to exceed 173.95 tons of VOC per year.  This represents a 10.5 percent increase over the Air State Facility Permit, reflecting a revised LAER determination taking into account corrected process information, and higher VOC emissions due to operational difficulties not anticipated when the original Air State Facility Permit was issued.

Compliance with 40CFR 63 Subpart MMMM MACT Standards for Miscellaneous Metal Parts will limit organic HAP emissions, from joist and bridging material surface coating operations, to 0.31 kg per liter (2.6 pounds per gallon) of coating solids applied.

Compliance with 40CFR 63 Subpart SSSS MACT Standards for Metal Coil Coating will limit organic HAP emissions, from steel deck coating operations, to 0.046 kg per liter (0.384 pounds per gallon) of coating solids applied.

Department staff have determined that proposed emissions of HAP compounds from this facility will not cause concentrations to reach significant levels for any off site receptors.

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.
