Project Description:
This Department has received a request to issue a permit and has drafted an Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, an Air State Facility Permit, for the Burrows Paper Corporation. The facility is located at 730 East Mill Street, Little Falls, New York. The facility emissions consist of NOx, CO, SO2, PM/PM10, VOCs and HAPs.  The facility consists of 2 paper machine lines and 2 boilers.  The paper machines prepare various commodity grade paper and have 2 natural gas dryers associated with the paper machines.  The boilers are rated at 54 mmbtu/hr and 44 mmbtu/hr respectively.  The primary boiler of 54 mmbtu/hr is capable of firing natural gas and #2 fuel oil.  The 44 mmbtu/hr boiler is for backup purposes and fires natural gas only.  
The facility emissions are capped below the Title V thresholds for all pollutants.  The facility is therefore minor for all criteria pollutants and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs). The criteria pollutant emissions for which a standard exists have been modeled and do not exceed any of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).  The HAPs have been modeled against the standards in DAR-1 and all HAPs show compliance. The draft permit with conditions is available for review in the Region 6 NYS DEC office in Watertown, New York.
