Chautauqua County

Applicant: Nestle Purina Pet Care Company
Checker Board Square
Saint Louis, MO 63164 -0000
Facility: Nestle Purina Pet Care Company
3800 Middle Rd
Dunkirk, NY 14048
Application ID: 9-0603-00023/02001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Dunkirk, Chautauqua County
Project Description:
The Department has drafted an Air State Facility (ASF) Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and made a tentative determination to approve this application for Nestle Purina PetCare Company's pet food manufacturing facility located at 3800 Middle Road to allow for greater flexibility in terms of fuel usage at the facility. The facility is currently operating under an Air Facility Registration (AFR).  Under the AFR, the facility was capped by rule in order to avoid Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) requirements and major facility, Title V permitting.  Natural gas has been the facility's main source of fuel.  The firm now desires greater flexibility by burning both No. 6 oil and natural gas.  This will require a higher emission cap than is allowed by the AFR cap-by-rule limitation.  To accomplish this higher cap limit, the firm submitted an application for an ASF Permit.  The draft ASF Permit includes a Federally enforceable emission cap limiting Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) emissions based on fuel usage.  NOx emissions are also limited below the major source and NOx RACT applicability threshold.  The facility will remain minor for New Source Review for both NOx and SO2.
