Middletown, NY 10940
Application ID: 3-3352-00111/00033
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Wallkill, Orange County
Project Description:
    The Department has made a tentative decision to approve emission reduction credits (ERC's) for the past emission reductions of Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) which were the result of the shutdown of the tesa tape facility in Middletown.  The applicants application also requested ERC's for Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Particulate Matter (PM-10) ERC's.  Orange county is in attainment of National Ambient Air Quality Standards for CO and PM-10 and as such New York State does not certify ERC's for these contaminants in this area.  
    In summary, as a result of the shutdown of the tesa tape facility (specifically emission units U-50LIN, U-MIXER, U-CCALEN and U-49LIN) the Department intends to certify 5.9 tons of NOx and 143.8 tons of VOC ERC's as requested by the applicant.  The application and supporting documentation are available for review at the NYSDEC Region 3 Office.  Specifically, Mr. Robert Stanton, PE, Region 3 Regional Air Pollution Control Engineer, 21 South Putt Corners Rd, New Paltz, NY 12561  (845) 256-3048.
