Broome County

Applicant: Frito Lay Inc
7701 Legacy Dr
Plano, TX 75024 -0634
Facility: Frito Lay
10 Spud Ln
Kirkwood, NY 13795
Application ID: 7-0334-00009/00023
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Kirkwood, Broome County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a draft permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and made a tentative decision to approve an application for an Air State Facility Permit for Frito-Lay Inc. located at 10 Spud Lane, Kirkwood, NY.

Frito-Lay’s facility in Binghamton manufactures snack foods from corn, potatoes, and seasonings through frying and baking operations.  The facility also operates a primary boiler (IBW gas or propane fired) with a heat input capacity of 79 mmBtu/hr and two Cleaver Brooks backup boilers (12.5 mmBtu/hr each).  The larger boiler was installed in 1986.  

The production of potato chips requires first that the spuds be cleaned, sliced and blanched.  Then the chips are fried in vegetable or animal oil, seasoned and packaged. Frying causes the emissions of particulate matter and Volatile Organic Compound (VOCs).  The amount of VOC emitted is considered to be minimal due to the heavy nature (low vapor pressure) of the oil.  The DEC has requested that Frito Lay either test its own emissions or provide emissions data from similar plants.

Process equipment includes corn cook kettles (16 batch devices that release water vapor); nine fryers; and 11 ovens.  The vast majority of these vents are exempt from permitting pursuant to 6 NYCRR 201-3.2c(2) for small combustion devices and 201-3.3c(18), an exemption for blanching and cooking in food.

The draft permit contains conditions that regulate emissions of oil droplets from the fryers.  The permit also contains an annual emission cap for Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), under which the facility will remain minor and not subject to Title V.

The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the DEC office provided in this notice. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicated. DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon an evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised. Hearing notices will contain instructions on filing for party status and submitting comments.

Cortland County

Applicant: Cortland Line Co Inc
3736 Kellogg Rd
Cortland, NY 13045 -8818
Facility: Cortland Line Co
3736 Kellogg Rd
Cortland, NY 13045
Application ID: 7-1122-00004/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Cortlandville, Cortland County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a draft permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and made a tentative decision to approve an application for an Air State Facility Permit for Cortland Line Company located at 3736 Kellogg Road, Cortland, NY.

Cortland Line’s facility in Cortland, NY makes monofilament fishing line, braided line, and fly fishing line.  The monofilament line is made in an extrusion process, with minimal emissions, and the braiding operation is mechanical, with no emissions.  Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions result from the coating of braided line (waterproofing, priming, coating with a plastisol, and topcoating).

The draft permit contains conditions implementing 6 NYCRR 212 and also imposes a cap on emissions of hazardous air pollutants, under which Cortland Line will remain a minor facility and not be subject to either Title III Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) or Title V permitting.

The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the DEC office provided in this notice. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicated. DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon an evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised.

Tioga County

Applicant: Lockheed Martin Corp
6801 Rockledge Dr
Bethesda, MD 20817 -1836
Facility: Lockheed Martin Systems Integratration
1801 State Route 17C
Owego, NY 13827 -3998
Application ID: 7-4930-00016/00277
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Owego, Tioga County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a draft permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and made a tentative decision to approve an application for an Air State Facility Permit for Lockheed Martin Corporation, 1801 State Route 17C, Owego, NY.

Lockheed Martin’s Owego facility manufactures printed circuit boards.  Electrical circuits are etched onto sheets of copper-coated fiberglass panels.  Individual sheets are then laminated together.  To create the circuits, copper is coated with a photo-sensitive polymer and overlain with “artwork.”  When exposed to Ultra-Violet light, some of the light passes through the artwork and strikes the photoresist, causing it to polymerize.  In subsequent steps the unpolymerized photoresist is stripped away and the un-protected copper is etched, leaving behind the copper protected by the polymerized photoresist. Steps involved in this process include surface cleaning and preparation, lamination of photoresist to copper, etching of copper and plating of tin/lead.

This permit regulates emissions pursuant to 6 NYCRR Parts 212,  225 and 227 and also imposes emissions caps for Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP), Volatile Organic Compound (VOC), Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emissions, under which Lockheed will remain a minor facility not subject to Title V.

The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review during normal business hours at the DEC office provided in this notice. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicated. DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon an evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised.
