Queensbury, NY 12804
Application ID: 5-5234-00007/00087
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air State Facility
Project is Located: Queensbury, Warren County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a draft permit and made a tentative determination to approve this application for a State Facility Permit that will replace the currently valid individual emission point permits held by this facility.  The applicant manufactures medical devices and the processes of cleaning, coating and drying the devices create emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) to the atmosphere.  The permit limits VOC and HAP emission to levels below major source emission levels.

Some processes employ coatings which do not meet the VOC content requirements of 6NYCRR Part 228.  The Department has received and proposes to approve a request for a waiver allowing limited use of these coatings for 3 years.  The company has provided documentation that compliant coatings which meet their specific requirements are not available and that the cost of installing a control device significantly exceeds the cost threshold for Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT).  The permit contains conditions which only allow application of non-compliant coatings while using techniques that minimize emissions and which  limit the quantity of non-compliant coatings that may be used.

The application, draft permit and relevant materials are available for review at the Warrensburg DEC office.  Comments of support or objection may be made by filing a written statement prior to the comment deadline.  DEC may schedule a public hearing based upon the nature and scope of any issues raised.  Hearing notices will contain instructions on filing for party status and submitting comments.
