Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Babylon, Suffolk County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for renewal and modification of an existing Air Title V permit. The modification includes the addition of a spray booth with two emission points.
The facility currently has seven spray booths, two drying ovens and exhaust from one mixing/storage room.  All coatings are compliant coatings.  The facility’s painting operations are regulated under 6NYCRR Part 228 - Surface Coating Processes.  This facility is not subject to 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart GG - National Emission Standards for Aerospace Manufacturing and Rework Facilities since it is not a major source of hazardous air pollutants.
The facility also conducts vapor degreasing of aerospace parts.  These operations are regulated under 6NYCRR Part 226 - Solvent Metal Cleaning Processes and 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart T - National Emission Standards for Halogenated Solvent Cleaning.
The facility conducts cadmium and copper plating of steel aerospace parts.  These emissions  are regulated by 6NYCRR Part 212 - General Process Emission Sources. The facility conducts acid based cleaning and uses chromic acid for anodizing. These emissions are regulated under 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart N - National Emission Standards for Chromium Emissions from Hard and Decorative Electroplating and Chromium Anodizing Tanks.
In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(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.
