ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 11/16/2005

Monroe County

Applicant: Eastman Kodak Co
343 State Street
Rochester, NY 14650
Facility: Kodak Park Division
1669 Lake Ave
Rochester, NY 14650
Application ID: 8-2614-00205/01840
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Rochester, Monroe County
Project Description:
The Department has received an application which seeks a preconstruction air state facility approval for a project to modify Emission Unit (EU) U-00054 at Building 329 at Eastman Kodak Company’s(Kodak) Kodak Park Facility located within the City of Rochester and the Town of Greece in Monroe County.This modification involves the installation of an upgrade to a conveyance system on a coating machine. The upgrade would allow for higher coating speeds and production output. The upgrade would also increase the emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), but would not increase emissions of halogenated compounds or A-rated (higher potential for serious adverse environmental effects) compounds, including methylene chloride. Kodak has agreed to accept as a condition of the Department’s approval a restriction on the allowable VOC emissions from EU U-00054 of 80.2 Tons Per Year (TPY) on a rolling 12 month basis. Currently, Kodak’s Title V Facility VOC emissions from EU U-00054 are restricted to 62.2 TPY in a Title V Facility Permit issued for Kodak’s Kodak Park facility. The new 80.2 Emission cap for VOC emissions will limit the emission increase for this modification to below the 40 TPY emission increase threshold, which if exceeded would make this project subject to the New Source Review requirements found in the federal regulations at 40CFR 52.21 (Prevention of Significant Deterioration -PSD) and the state regulations at 6 NYCRR Part 231-2. The coating machine is vented to a Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO), which is an air pollution control device providing greater than 97% control of contaminant emissions.

Kodak will be required to comply with all other permit conditions for EU U-00054 in the existing Kodak Park Title V Facility Permit (8-2614-00205/0801). Subsequently, any special conditions associated with the State Facility Permit approval for this modification will be incorporated into a future modification of this Title V Facility Permit.

The Department’s review of the application indicates that project location and the area for which the project may have impacts on ambient air quality (½ mile radius) are not located in or within a potential environmental justice area. The Department’s environmental impact assessment has determined that the project will not result in significant adverse environmental impacts.

The application and revised permit condition are available for review at the Region 8 Office of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

Seneca County

Applicant: Tarjac Inc
2241 NYS Rte 414
Waterloo, NY 13165
Facility: Tarjac Inc
2241 St Rte 414
Waterloo, NY 13165
Application ID: 8-4532-00099/02005
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Seneca Falls, Seneca County
Project Description:
The Department has received an Air State Facility permit application from Tarjac, Inc. for operation of a coating facility which applies camouflage decorative coatings to various plastic & metal parts such as gun stocks, bow limbs, and arrow shafts.  The facility has added new emission sources which include two (2) new paint booth operations, a new sample dip tank operation and a new etching room.  The facility is located at 2241 NYS Route 414 in Waterloo, Seneca County.

As part of this application, Tarjac, Inc. has proposed to restrict facility potentials to emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), aggregate hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and individual hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) to below the applicability thresholds in 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V).  This will limit potentials to emit VOCs to 49.9 tons per year, aggregate HAPs to 24.9 tons per year and individual HAPs to 9.9 tons per year.

This facility was previously able to cap by rule pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 201-7.3, due to emissions less than 50 percent of Part 201-6 (Title V) thresholds.  

To verify compliance, a cap tracking system will be implemented where records of actual coatings consumed will be tracked, calculated, and recorded on a 12 month rolling basis.

The application and draft permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.
