Applicant: Eastman Kodak Co
343 State Street
Rochester, NY 14650
Facility: Kodak Park Division
1669 Lake Ave
Rochester, NY 14650
Application ID: 8-2614-00205/01837
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Rochester, Monroe County
Project Description:
The Department is considering the issuance of a  preconstruction permit which would authorize the construction and initial operation of emission sources associated with a new emission unit, Emission Unit U-00086, at the Kodak Park facility, which is located in the City of Rochester and the Town of Greece, Monroe Co. . The machine will be housed in a new building that will be constructed adjacent to existing Building 325 in the Town of Greece. In addition to the new machine, the permit allows construction of the following: new equipment and parts cleaning units; modification of existing and installation of new equipment for solution preparation and delivery to the machine; new equipment for media finishing operations; new equipment for solvent recovery; and installation of a regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) to control emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) from the printing machine and solvent recovery still.

Kodak is required to submit a complete application to modify the Kodak Park Title V Facility Permit (8-2614-00205/01801) within one year of the initial operation of the new gravure printing machine. Until the Title V Facility Permit is modified, the preconstruction state facility permit will allow Kodak to operate the new gravure printing machine for the purposes of commissioning the new equipment and then to undertake the required performance testing of the RTO. Prior to the performance test, the RTO will be operated under the manufacturer's specifications. Following the completion of the performance testing,  Kodak will be using operating parameters verified by the testing. The performance test operating parameters will also be incorporated into the Title V Facility Permit modification when Emission Unit U-00086 is added to the permit.

With regard to 40 CFR Part 52.21 Subpart A Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD), and 6 NYCRR Part 231-2 New Source Review (NSR) in Ozone Transport Regions, this project meets the definition of a modification and an emission limitation is necessary in order to limit the potential increase in VOC emissions from this project below the significance level of 40 tons per year. Kodak has agreed to permit conditions which will limit VOC emissions from U-00086  to 39.9 TPY on a 12 month rolling average basis. The gravure printing machine and the regenerative thermal oxidizer will be subject to the Maximum Available Control Technology (MACT) for Printing and Publishing Industry. Using Permanent Total Enclosure for capture and the RTO for control, Kodak will be able to achieve the MACT standard for 95% capture and control of VOC.

VOC emissions control provided by the RTO, will ensure that the websurface coating processes and the solution application stations will be in compliance with the  Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) requirements of 85% overall removal efficiency (6NYCRR Part 228) and 81% control( 6NYCRR Part 212), respectively. Kodak has requested an alternate VOC emission limit of 2.6 TPY, on a 12 month rolling average basis,  for emission sources associated with solution preparation and delivery operations to comply with 6NYCRR Part 212 VOC RACT  requirements. This limit is based on a RACT evaluation provided by Kodak which concluded that emission controls for these sources are not cost effective. The RTO will be equipped with low NOx (Oxides of Nitrogen) burners, which Kodak has proposed to meet the requirements of 6NYCRR Part 212 NOx RACT. Kodak will also be complying with a NOx emissions cap of 18.8 TPY on a 12 month rolling average.
    
The application and draft permit are available for review at the Region 8 Office of
the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
