Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Elmira, Chemung County
Project Description:
Anchor Glass Container Corporation has submitted an application for renewal of its Title V Facility Permit, originally issued June 25, 2001, for its glass container manufacturing facility in the City of Elmira.  The facility manufactures glass containers for beverage and food packaging, and has emission points exhausting 2 glass melting furnaces, 4 glass container forming lines, 4 vapor deposition coating lines, raw material unloading, weighing, transfer and mixing operations, inkjet printers to code containers, crushing operations for glass cullet, and equipment for recycling cardboard packaging materials.  

The Department has generated a Draft Permit, based on the application received, for Title V Permit renewal.  Operations authorized by the Draft Permit are unchanged from those authorized by the Permit issued June 25, 2001.

The facility meets the definition of a major facility in 6 NYCRR Part 201-2.1(b)(21), and is subject to Part 201-6 (Title V), due to emissions in excess of 100 tons per year each of: particulate matter less than 10 microns (PM-10); total particulate matter(PM); sulfur dioxide (SO2); and oxides of nitrogen (NOx).

The application, Draft Title V Facility Permit, and Permit Review Report are available for review at the Region 8 NYSDEC office.

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application.
In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(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 requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date.  The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dar/boss/afs/index.html.
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.
