Applicant: Dolomite Products Co Inc

Rochester, NY 14625 -2202
Facility: Victor Hot Mix Asphalt Facility
7607 Commons Blvd - Lot #8
Victor, NY 14564
Application ID: 8-3248-00023/00007
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Victor, Ontario County
Project Description:
The Department has received an Air State Facility application from Dolomite Products Co Inc, d.b.a. Rochester Asphalt Materials, for existing operations at its Victor Hot Mix Asphalt Plant, located at 7607 Commons Blvd in the Town of Victor, Ontario County.

As part of this application, Dolomite Products Co. Inc. has proposed to restrict the Victor Hot Mix Asphalt Plant potentials to emit carbon monoxide (CO) and oxides of nitrogen (NOX) to below the 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) and Part 212 Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) applicability thresholds for a Major Stationary Source.

In response, the Department has drafted a Special Permit Condition to limit asphalt production in any 12-month period sufficiently to restrict CO emissions to less than 100 tons.  This asphalt production limit will also reduce facility potential to emit NOX, emitted at a lower rate than CO, to below the Part 201-6 and Part 212 thresholds of 100 tons per year.

To verify that the facility is in compliance, Dolomite Products Co. Inc. will be required to maintain a log of monthly asphalt production at the facility, 12-month rolling totals of asphalt production, and calculate annual totals of emissions. These records are to be maintained for a minimum of five years, and must be made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

Also as part of this application, Dolomite Products Co. Inc. has proposed to use waste oil, classified as "Waste Fuel A" in 6 NYCRR Part 225, as a fuel, in addition to natural gas and #2 fuel oil. Waste Fuel A does not contain chemical waste and is subject to contaminant limitations specified in Part 225-2.4(b). For all three fuels, the contaminant emitted at the greatest rate remains CO.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.
