Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Cortland, Cortland County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a draft permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and made a tentative decision to issue an Air State Facility Permit to GSG Vincent for its facility locaed at 1155 Port Watson Street, Cortland, NY.   The company has requested an Air State Facility Permit that includes federally enforceable permit conditions which limit (cap) facility wide emissions of volatile organic compounds (voc) and hazardous air pollutants (HAP) below the applicability levels of 6 NYCRR Part 2016 (Title V) permitting and 40CFR63, Subpart JJ.

The facility strips and recoats wood furniture.  Removal of the existing coating is accomplished by sanding or by applying a chemical remover.  The furniture is then stained by hand, coated with a clear coating and reupholstered.  Laminated surfaces may be glued onto desk tops.  There are two emissions points, one for the spray booth and one for the chemical stripper booth.

The permit establishes facility-wide federally enforceable emission caps for volatile organic compounds and hazardous air pollutants to keep the facility below the following major source thresholds: (a) 50 tpy VOC; (b) 25 tpy aggregate HAPs; (c) 10 tpy individual HAP.   The owner is required to maintain records and monitor facility emissions to verify compliance with permit conditions and limits, and to submit an annual capping certification report in accordance with 6 NYCRR Part 2017.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 7 Cortland NYSDEC office.
