Application ID: 4-1230-00019/00055
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Deposit, Delaware County
Project Description:
The Department has proposed a modification to the Title V permit for the Norbord Industries facility located on Laurel Bank Avenue, Town of Deposit, County of Delaware, owned by Norbord Industries, Inc. of Deposit, New York.  The facility produces medium density fiberboard (MDF) used by the furniture industry as a core material.  The facility includes boilers, presses, dryer, raw material handling sources and other miscellaneous sources.  The modification is required to update existing volatile organic compound (VOC) permit conditions, emission factors based on recent stack testing, process descriptions, emission unit descriptions, and the facility description to reflect the different grades of MDF manufactured at the facility.  Updating the VOC permit conditions will include modifying the VOC limits to reflect the limits established by Order on Consent R4-2003-0818-103.

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 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 two 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 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 exists.  A copy of the Department’s permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department’s web site at:
