Application ID: 8-4642-00011/00046
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Erwin, Steuben County
Project Description:
The Department has received an application for a modification to the initial State Facility Permit for the existing Corning Inc - Sullivan Park research and development facility. The facility emits air contaminants from glass production operations and process boilers. Corning Inc proposes to increase allowable operation of an emergency generator from a maximum of 500 hours per year, exempted from regulation, to a non-exempt 2000 hours per year, and to include generator emissions under the current emission limits, to continue to restrict potential facility emissions to below the 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) applicability thresholds for a Major Stationary Source.

In response, the Department has generated a Draft Permit, which includes Conditions based on material use, fuel use, and appropriate emission factors, to continue to limit facility emissions:
C    of carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOX), particulate matter smaller than 10 microns (PM-10), and total particulate matter (PM), to a maximum of 99.9 tons per year each, below their 100 ton per year thresholds;
C    of volatile organic compounds (VOC), to a maximum of 49.9 tons per year, below their 50 ton per year threshold;
C    of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) hydrogen chloride (HCl), hydrogen fluoride (HF), and chlorine (Cl2), to a maximum of 9.9 tons per year each, below their 10 ton per year thresholds; and
C    of all HAP substances combined,  to a maximum of 24.9 tons per year, below their 25 ton per year threshold.

In addition, the Draft Permit continues to limit facility arsenic emissions from glass production and research operations to 34.9 pounds per year.

Facility emission processes include operation of two 46.7 million BTU per hour natural gas fired boilers that can burn number 2 fuel oil as backup, sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid storage tanks, acrylate coating processes, batch mixing and specialty glass production operations, hydrofluoric acid bath platinum crucible cleaning operations, fiber optic production, drying operations, process cleanup and maintenance vacuum systems, and two research and development continuous glass melters.

Compliance verification includes operation of emission control equipment, maintenance of operation logs for the boilers, melters, and emission control equipment, and calculations of 12 month rolling totals of emissions.  These records are to be maintained at the facility for a minimum of five years and must be made available with all supporting data to Department inspectors upon request.

The application and Draft Permit are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.  The Draft Permit may be viewed or downloaded as a .pdf file at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dardata/boss/afs/draft_asf.html
