West Henrietta, NY 14586
Application ID: 8-2632-00225/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Henrietta, Monroe County
Project Description:
Hammer Packaging Corporation has submitted an application for a Title V Facility Permit for its lithographic printing facility.

The Facility was originally issued an Air State Facility Permit for operation of its original five lithographic printing presses, on February 22, 1999.  That Permit included conditions to restrict emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and hazardous air pollutants (HAP) to below 6NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) thresholds of 50 tons per year of VOC, 10 tons per year of any individual HAP compound, and 25 tons per year of all HAP compounds combined.  A sixth lithographic press was added in 2004, and a seventh in 2005, under the provisions of the operational flexibility plan in the Permit.  These additions did not change any emission limits or regulatory requirements established in the Permit.

Due to expanding operations, Hammer Packaging Corp proposes to remove the existing limits on VOC and HAP emissions.  Potential facility emissions of VOC will exceed the major source threshold of 50 tons per year. This will make the facility subject to the permitting requirements of Title V and the requirements of 6NYCRR Part 234, which regulates VOC emissions from major graphic arts sources.

The Department has prepared a Draft Permit and 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.

Applicant: Frazier Industrial Co

Facility: Frazier Industrial Co
1291 Waterloo Geneva Rd
Waterloo, NY 13165
Application ID: 8-4538-00004/00013
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Waterloo, Seneca County
Project Description:
Frazier Industrial Company has submitted an Air State Facility application for its Waterloo Facility, which manufactures industrial steel storage rack systems.  Facility operations include steel part welding, cleaning, dip coating, and spray coating, and are currently regulated by permits for individual process emission points, in effect prior to enactment of current regulations.  The Air State Facility application submitted does not propose a change in operations, but will allow the Department to issue a single permit for all operations at the facility.

In the current emission point based permits, facility emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and hazardous air pollutants (HAP) are restricted to below 50 tons per year of VOC, below 25 tons per year total HAP, and below 10 tons per year for each individual HAP compound, by permit conditions limiting coating use. These are applicability thresholds in 6 NYCRR Part 201-6 (Title V) regulations, and the restrictions allow Frazier Industrial Company to remain below Major Stationery Source thresholds requiring a Title V Permit.

As part of this application, Frazier Industrial Company seeks to maintain its current emissions restrictions below the Title V VOC and HAP thresholds indicated above, by continuing to limit coating use.

In response, the Department has generated a Draft Air State Facility Permit that allows Frazier Industrial Company to remain capped below Title V thresholds for VOC and HAP.  To verify compliance, Frazier Industrial Company will be required to maintain records of coating use and emissions at the facility, to be maintained on site for a minimum of five years, and 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 Air State Facility Permit may be viewed or downloaded as a .pdf file at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dardata/boss/afs/draft_asf.html
