Application ID: 3-5522-00087/00019
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Cortlandt, Westchester County
Project Description:
       The Department has made a tentative determination to approve the following two (2) Draft Permits for Lafarge North America to modernize and increase capacity at its existing Buchanan Gypsum Wallboard Plant in Buchanan, NY:

Draft Air Title V Modification:       
       The Department has prepared a Draft Title V Air Pollution Control permit modification and has made a tentative determination to approve this proposed modification requested by Lafarge North America for its plans to modernize its Buchanan, New York Gypsum Wallboard Plant. The modernization comprises the installation of newer and more efficient processing equipment that will increase the facility production rate of wallboard to approximately 650 million square feet per year (mmSF/yr). Lafarge will be replacing a significant portion of the existing equipment in the plant including all significant combustion sources.
       The project will involve the shutdown of the existing Raymond Mill No. 1 (Emission Unit 16, process 16a), the four calcimine kettles (Emission Unit 16, process 16b; and emission units 18 through 21), and the existing board dryer (emission unit 24). This equipment will be replaced with a new calcimine mill (Emission Unit 30), a new stucco cooling system (Emission Unit 31) , and a new board dryer (Emission Unit 38).  
      The new combustion equipment will employ improved NOx controls and will only fire natural gas.  The existing Raymond Mill No. 2 (Emission Unit 17) will operate exclusively on natural gas.  Existing fugitive emission unit 000F1,  will be modified to process up to 1,850 tons per hour (up from 1,200 tons per hour currently) of gypsum unloaded from water borne vessels and it thereby will be subject  40 CFR part 60, subpart OOO.
       All other existing fugitive emission units identified in the current Title V permit will remain unchanged.  Current equipment will continue to operate during the construction phase of this project.
  
Draft SPDES Permit Modification:
       The Department has prepared a Draft SPDES discharge permit modification and has made a tentative determination to approve this proposed permit modification requested by Lafarge North America as part of its plans to modernize its Buchanan, New York Gypsum Wallboard Plant.
       The modification to Lafarge's current SPDES permit would  add Outfall #007 for the discharge of stormwater on the west side of the facility, which is the Hudson River side. The effluent requirements for this outfall  will be the same as for the existing, already approved,  Outfalls #004 and #005 which also discharge stormwater.  With this proposed modification the facility would have a total of four outfalls; #002 for sanitary wastes and #004, #005 & #007 for stormwater.  Outfalls # 001 (for cooling water) & #003 (for washwater) were previously deleted.

Tentative Determinations:
       As a tentative determination, the Department seeks public comments on the proposed modifications prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.  The Department is required under federal law to make these tentative determinations and prepare draft permits for Title V Air permits and for SPDES discharge permits.  As such, this tentative determination does not signify Department approval of, or endorsement of, the activity for which the permits are sought or for the overall proposed project.   The purpose of the draft permits issimply to present to the applicant and the public the possible permit conditions and restrictions that could appear in the final issued permit.

Facility Location:   
       The Lafarge North America Gypsum Wallboard Plant is located at 415 Broadway, in the Village of Buchanan, Town of Cortlandt, Westchester County, NY.
       Copies of both draft permits are available for review from the Contact Person listed at the end of this Notice.
