Application ID: 9-1402-00574/00025
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Buffalo, Erie County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared two draft permits and has made tentative determinations to approve two permit actions for the Flexo Transparent, Inc. (Flexo) printing facility.  The first action is a Department initiated modification of Flexo’s existing ASF permit to establish a new volatile organic compounds (VOC) emission cap of less than 45 tons per year (tpy) for emission unit 1-PRINT (DEC No. 9-1402-00574/00023).  This emission unit previously had a VOC emission cap of 15 tpy.  The second action is a new ASF permit for construction and operation of a new emission unit, 2-PRINT, a 10-color flexographic printing press and dedicated regenerative thermal oxidation control device (DEC No. 9-1402-00574/00025).  This ASF permit imposes a VOC emission cap of less than 50 tons per year on the new emission unit.  Flexo must submit an application for a Title V permit which will incorporate the requirements of their two ASF permits within one year of commencement of operation of emission unit 2-PRINT.  Persons wishing to inspect the subject files, including the applications with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permits, and all other materials available to the DEC that are relevant to these decisions should contact the DEC representative listed below. It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files. A public hearing may be held if a significant degree of public interest exists.

Facility: Gernatt Asphalt Products Inc

Collins, NY 14034
Application ID: 9-1436-00002/00009
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Collins, Erie County
Project Description:
The Gernatt Asphalt Products Inc., Taylor Hollow Road in the Town of Collins, includes one batch hot mix plant and one portable asphalt drum plant.  The portable asphalt drum plant was installed after June 11, 1973 and is subject to both the the opacity standard and the standard for particulate matter in 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart I Section 92.  The batch hot mix plant was installed prior to June 11, 1973 and is not subject to Subpart I Section 92 but is subject to the opacity limit in 6NYCRR Part 212.6(a).  The permit contains conditions which limit the facility's ability to emit carbon monoxide (CO) to less than the major facility threshold value of 100 tons per year. Once CO is capped, all other pollutants will be capped below Title V thresholds. The capping conditions provide specific formulae for calculating CO emissions for each emission source. Gernatt Asphalt Products is required to annually certify continuous compliance with the emission caps through use of a 12-month rolling total emission rate, calculated on a monthly basis. The application, draft permit, relevant supporting materials and regulations are available for review duiring normal business hours at the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation office provided in this notice. Comments of support or objection may be made by fiiling a written statement by the deadline date indicated.

Application ID: 9-2911-00030/00041
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES

Project Description:
The Department has decided to pursue a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the SPDES permit (NY 000-3328) of E.I. Dupont de NeMours & Company Inc.,as part of the Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS).  The proposed changes would: modify the current method of measuring oil and grease effluent, require a Pollutant Minimization Program (PMP) for mercury, remove monitoring requirements for select parameters that have been consistently measured at levels significantly below the permit action level over the last four years of sampling, reduce the zinc effluent limit, add a requirement for monitoring nickel at select outfalls, and would include several other minor reporting modifications.  The permittee’s surface discharges occur at the following outfall locations into the respective receiving waters:  01E and 01W - To Niagara River via a diversion sewer (Class: A-Special); 004, 101,  103, 104, and 106 - to Niagara River (Class:  A-Special); SW1 - Stormwater Swale to Gill Creek (Class C).  The Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.  The DIM does not signify department approval for or endorsement of the activity for which the permit is granted or for the overall proposed project.
