Applicant: Dunkirk Specialty Steel LLC

PO Box 319
Dunkirk, NY 14048 -0319
Facility: Dunkirk Specialty Steel LLC

Dunkirk, NY 14048
Application ID: 9-0603-00001/00042
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Dunkirk, Chautauqua County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for an Air State Facility Permit for existing air emission sources. The application and draft permit involve converting permits for individual emission points to a single facility permit. A prevous Air Title V permit application, noticed in the November 10, 2004 issue of the ENB, has been withdrawn and replaced by this application, based on more accurate emissions levels determinations and capping described herein. Dunkirk Specialty Steel, LLC owns and operates a specialty steel processing facility that manufactures steel bar, rod, and wire products and is a potential major source of particulate and total hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions. The air pollution sources at Dunkirk Specialty Steel emit air pollutants consisting mainly of particulate matter, combustion by-products, and acid vapors. Dunkirk Specialty Steel is a natural minor source of sulfur dioxide (SO2), volatile organic compounds (VOC), PM-10, and total and individual hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions. Dunkirk Specialty Steel is a synthetic minor source of total particulate, carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions. Particulate emissions are generated primarily from cutting and grinding operations. Many of the particulate sources utilize control equipment to reduce facility-wide emissions to less than 100 tons per year (tpy). The facility has accepted emission limitations on the particulate sources to cap emissions below 80 tpy and avoid Title V permit applicability.  The facility will be required limit the number of grinders in operation at any one time and to operate the particulate control equipment at all times when the specific sources are operating. Compliance with this requirement will be by an inspection and maintenance program of the particulate control equipment. Carbon Monoxide emissions are generated from the combustion sources. The maximum potential CO emissions from the combustion sources exceed 100 tpy. The facility has two boilers of which one hasnot been operational for several years. The reduction of CO emissions from the second boiler reduces the potential facility CO emissions to less than 100 tpy. The facility has agreed to not operate the second boiler at any time and, thus, cap CO emissions below 90 tpy, avoiding Title V permit applicability. Dunkirk Specialty Steel is a potential major source of NOx emissions which are emitted from the combustion sources and the nitric acid pickling tank. The facility has limited NOx emissions below 90 tons per year to avoid Title V permit applicability and the Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) requirements under 6NYCRR Parts 212, 216, and 227-2. The NOx RACTemissions cap issued by letter on December 20, 1995, is being incorporated into this permit, andcompliance monitoring requirements associated with the cap are being updated to reflect new information and changes in operations since the cap was first instituted. Acid gas emissions from the pickling process are to be controlled using a caustic packed tower. The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations, are available for review during normal business hours at the DEC Allegany office. Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement by the deadline date indicted. DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon evaluation of the nature and scope of any written objections raised. Notice of such hearing will contain instructions for filing for party status and submitting comments.
