Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Beacon, Dutchess County
Project Description:
    The Department has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this application for a Title V Permit Renewal.
    Chemprene, Inc. is located in Beacon, Dutchess County, New York.  This facility coasts various purchased substrates with rubber or polymer coatings.  The facility is comprised of three raw product mixing mills, five spreader/oven coating lines and two 20.92 MMBTU/hr boilers capable of firing natural gas or # fuel oil. There are several additional emissions points at the facility for activities including toluene storage, solvent and rubber mixing vessels and curing/vulcanizing ovens. A catalytic oxidizer is used for the control of VOCs from the solvent-related coating lines.
    The facility is subject to 6NYCRR Parts 225, 227 and 228.  The facility is limiting total HAP emissions to 22.5 tons per rolling twelve month period and individual HAP emissions to 9.75 tons per rolling twelve month period to cap out of 40CFR 60 Subpart 0000, Fabric Printing, Coating and Dyeing Surface Coating.
    By acceptance of this permit, the permittee agrees that the permit is contingent upon strict compliance with the ECL, all applicable regulations, the General Conditions specified and any Special Conditions included as part of this permit.
    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 two (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.  DECís 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 Departmentís permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.
