Facility: Gm Powertrain - Massena Plant
Rooseveltown Rd
Massena, NY 13662
Application ID: 6-4058-00004/00135
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: St Lawrence County
Project Description:
This Department has received a request to issue a permit renewal and has drafted a permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments for the  facility located at GM Powertrain, Rooseveltown Road, Massena, NY 13662.

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve the application of the GM Powertrain facility, a lost foam aluminum die casting operation. This is a re-notice of the permit after modifications due to comments made on the original permit. The Title V permit renewal allows the operation of Emission units 1-GMFAC, G-MCAST, G-MMELT, G-MMOLD. Each is part of the production process to produce aluminum engine parts using the lost foam process.  The facility has capped out of 6 NYCRR Part 231-2 requirements by limiting emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx). This will be done by tracking the production process and calculating emissions based on current stack test data and the process parameters. The facility has also capped out of PSD 40 CFR 52.21 requirements by limiting the emissions of particulates and PM-10 (particulates that are 10 microns or less in size) These will also be tracked through calculations from stack test data and process parameters.

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.
