Niagara County

Applicant: Isochem Inc

Lockport, NY 14094
Facility: Isochem Inc
1 North Transit Rd
Lockport, NY 14094
Application ID: 9-2909-00107/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Lockport, Niagara County
Project Description:
   The Department has drafted a permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments, and made a tentative determination to approve this application renewal for the existing facility-wide air emissions from ISOCHEM, Inc, formerly Vandemark Inc., a manufacturer of custom chemicals on a batch or semi-continuous basis. Custom chemicals produced include but are not limited to phosgene and phosgene derivatives. Air emissions include nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur dioxide, volatile organic compounds (VOC), phosgene, chlorine, chlorobenzene and hydrogen chloride.
   The facility is subject to the Title V major source permitting requirements of 40 CFR Part 70 and 6NYCRR, Part 201-6 as determined by actual emissions of carbon monoxide in excess of 100 tons per year. The permit renewal contains previously established emission caps limiting emissions of VOCs to less than 50 tons per year to avoid applicability to reasonably available control requirements of 6NYCRR, Part 212.10 (Major Sources of VOC and NOx) and 6NYCRR, Part 229 (Volatile Organic Liquid Storage Tanks). The renewal also contains an operational flexibility protocol to address minor modification as per the requirements of 6NYCRR , Part 201-6.5(f)(2). In addition the renewal restates the cap limiting emissions of sulfur dioxide for the production of Carbaester to less than the 40 ton deminimus for prevention of serious deterioration(PSD) applicability. The company has chosen to limit sulfur dioxide emissions from the entire facility to less than 40 tons per year in order to avoid the need for any future applicability determinations and noticing requirements in the event of the modification or addition of new sources emitting sulfur dioxide.        
   In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 2016.4(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201. Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below.  It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files. The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within 2 business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date.  DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing.  A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory.  A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment.  DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists. If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments. The applicant and all persons who  have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing. Comments and requests for a legislative public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below. An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination. An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exist.  A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm
