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 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 exists.  A copy of the Department’s permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department’s web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

Application ID: 4-2732-00014/00057
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Mohawk, Montgomery County
Project Description:
The Department has proposed a Title V permit for the application that was received for the Keymark Corp. Plant facility located at 1188 Cayadutta Street (Route 334), Village of Fonda, County of Montgomery, owned by Keymark Corp. Of Fonda, New York.  The application is for the renewal of the facility’s existing Title V permit and the modification of one of the facility’s paint lines and addition of a new homogenizer.  The modification of the paint line includes the installation of a new oxidizer for control and the replacement of equipment that was damaged by a fire.  The initial Title V permit for the facility was issued on August 3, 2000.  The facility is an aluminum extruding facility which performs alloying, billet making, extruding, die making, anodizing, thermal break operations, and painting/surface coating.  The facility includes an aluminum melting furnace and holder, extrusion presses, anodizing tanks, and two surface coating lines. The emissions from the two surface coating lines are controlled by three thermal oxidizers, one for one line and two for the other line.  The applicant has agreed to permit conditions which will limit the emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from the two surface coating lines in order to meet regulatory requirements.  The VOC emissions will be limited through the use of thermal oxidizers operating at prescribed minimum temperatures.  The applicant has also agreed to permit conditions which will limit particulate emissions in order to meet several regulatory requirements.  The particulate emissions will be limited through the use of various methods.  Filters will be used on some equipment as one method of limiting the particulate emissions.  The applicant will be required to maintain records and report this data to verify compliance with permit conditions and limits.
