Ontario County

Applicant: Dolomite Products Co Inc
1150 Penfield Rd
Rochester, NY 14625 -2202
Facility: Manchester Hot Mix Asphalt Facility
County Rd 7
Manchester, NY 14504
Application ID: 8-3236-00022/00010
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Manchester, Ontario County
Project Description:
The Department has received an application from Dolomite Products Co Inc, d/b/a Rochester Asphalt Materials, for modification of its Initial Air State Facility Permit, issued August 20, 1999.  The Permit covers operations at its Manchester Hot Mix Asphalt Facility, located on County Road 7 in the Town of Manchester.  Dolomite Products proposes to continue to keep its emissions below the Major Stationary Source thresholds in 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) and Part 212 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT).  Emission sources at the facility are a 350 ton per hour asphalt drum plant, and a 5 ton asphalt batch plant capable of producing 300 tons per hour.

The draft modified Facility Permit (Mod 1) reflects the removal of a diesel generator after electrical utility hook up, and includes modification of the current asphalt production limit for any 12 month period.  The proposed production limit is a formula based on the differing emission factors of the drum mix and the batch mix plants, rather than the current fixed production limit on each, allowing production to be flexibly allocated between the plants while emission limits are not exceeded.  The limit is sufficient to restrict facility carbon monoxide (CO) emissions in any 12 month period to less than 100 tons.  Since CO is the contaminant emitted at the greatest rate, and is emitted at more than twice the rate of volatile organic compounds (VOC), the CO based production limit will also restrict facility emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOX), sulfur dioxide (SO2), total particulate matter (PM), and VOC to less than the Major Stationary Source thresholds in Part 201-6 and Part 212 RACT.  These thresholds are 100 tons per year for CO, NOX, SO2, and PM, and 50 tons per year for VOC.

To verify that the facility is in compliance, Dolomite Products will be required to maintain a log of monthly asphalt production at the facility, 12-month rolling totals of asphalt production, and calculate annual totals of emissions. These records are to be maintained for a minimum of five years, and must be made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

Also as part of this application, Dolomite Products has proposed to use waste oil, classified as "Waste Fuel A" in 6 NYCRR Part 225, as a fuel, in addition to natural gas and fuel oil. Waste Fuel A does not contain chemical waste and is subject to contaminant limitations specified in Part 225-2.4(b). For all three fuels, the contaminant emitted at the greatest rate remains CO.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.
