Facility: Burrows Paper Corp - Mill St Fac

Little Falls, NY 13365
Application ID: 6-2109-00003/00007
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Herkimer County
Project Description:
This Department has received a request to modify an existing permit and has drafted an Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law, an Air State Facility Permit, for the facility located at Burrows Paper Corp-Mills Street Facility, 730 East Mill Street, Little Falls, NY 1336. The facility emissions consist of NOx, CO, SO2, PM/PM10, VOCs and HAPs.  The facility consists of 2 paper machine lines and 2 boilers. The paper machines prepare various commodity grade paper and have 2 natural gas dryers associated with the paper machines.  The boilers are rated at 54 mmbtu/hr and 44 mmbtu/hr respectively.  The primary boiler of 54 mmbtu/hr is capable of firing natural gas and #2 fuel oil.  The 44 mmbtu/hr boiler is for backup purposes and fires natural gas only.  The modification is to add an emission point for a paper repulper.
The facility emissions are capped below the Title V thresholds for all pollutants.  The facility is therefore minor for all criteria pollutants and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs). The criteria pollutant emissions for which a standard exists have been modeled and show no exceedances of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).  The HAPs have been modeled against the standards in DAR-1 and all HAPs show compliance. The draft permit with conditions is available for review in the Region 6 NYS DEC office in Watertown, NY.

Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: St Lawrence County
Project Description:
The Department has drafted a renewal permit pursuant to Article 19( Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and has made a tentative determination to approve this application for the existing facility located at Corning Inc.-Canton Plant, 334 County Route 16, Canton, New York. The facility produces several types of high purity specialty glass.  The primary SIC code for the facility is:  3229 - pressed and blown glass.  The facility consists of Emission Units:  U-00001, U-00002, U-00004, U-00005 and U-00006.  The facility is a major emitter for Nitrogen Oxides.

The glass forming furnaces included in emission unit U-00001 are subject to Part 231-2 and 40 CFR 52.21 and limited to 427.43 tons per year of Nitrogen Oxides.  Emission units U-00005 and U-00006 are limited to 79,210 lbs/yr of nitrogen oxides and 79,500 lbs/yr of sulfur dioxide.

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 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 a.m. through 4:45 p.m.), unless the requester wishes to inspect the files at a later date.

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 a 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 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's web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Part 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the 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.  After the public comment period, the USEPA will be provided a proposed permit and will have an additional 45 day period for review.  If USEPA does not raise any objection, the Department will issue the permit.

The application and Draft Title V Facility Permit are available in the Region 6 NYSDEC office in Watertown, New York.
