Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Riverhead, Suffolk County
Project Description:
The Department ha drafted a permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL and the Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments), and made a tentative determination to approve the renewal application for the applicants existing surface coating facility located at 1852 Old Country Road (RT 58), Riverhead NY.  The facility produces pressure sensitive tapes and labels that adhere to a surface on contact without wetting, heating or adding a curing agent.  The pressure sensitive label and tape industry is a subcategory of paper coating.  Emissions from solvent based coating operations are controlled by incinerators.  Air pollution control equipment at the facility includes one Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer and one Recuperative Thermal Oxidizer to destroy volatile organic compounds (VOC).  The facility is also equipped with a cyclone and bag filter particulate control, an evaporator, a woven filter, cartridge filter and carbon filter.  The facility employs continuous monitoring of the catalytic bed temperature rise for the regenerative oxidizer, combustion temperature for the recuperative oxidizer, stack exit temperature and pressure drop across the coating lines.  Adchem is permitted under 40CFR 60, Subpart KK and 6NYCRR Part 228.  The facility capped below 95 tons per year of VOC based on monthly rolled average to cap out of 6NYCRR Part 231-1.2(a)(4).

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(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 requester 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.
