Negative Declaration

Broome County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Imperium 3NY Lithium Ion Battery Manufacturing Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by Imperium 3 New York, Inc. (IM3NY), a lithium ion battery (LIB) business, to construct and operate a manufacturing facility to manufacture high performing lithium ion batteries. IM3NY intends to negotiate a lease agreement with Huron for use of two buildings (#48 and #53) on the Huron Endicott, NY campus. Facility emissions quantified in the permit application are low enough to qualify for an air facility registration, however NYS DEC required the facility apply for an Air State Facility (ASF) permit to conduct a more thorough review and implement permit conditions. IM3NY will function as a lithium ion battery manufacturing facility and be equipped to manufacture various sizes of rechargeable batteries. The facility will have raw material mixing rooms controlled by dust collectors which exhaust inside the building. The coating line is exhausted through thermal oxidizers or condensers for control of volatile organic compounds. Electrolyte filling operations are vented through a condenser. Once the facility is operational, they will be required to perform emissions testing to confirm control device efficiency and permit application emissions. IM3NY will submit an operations and maintenance plan for all control devices at the facility to ensure they remain within the operating parameters for which the testing was conducted and ensure optimal performance. As part of the permit application process, the facility conducted a DAR-1 review of their emissions inventory and confirmed there are no adverse off-site impacts exceeding DAR guideline concentrations through dispersion modeling which has been approved by NYS DEC. Some renovations will be necessary to existing buildings to accommodate IM3NY operations and building code requirements. The project is located at 1301 Clark Street, Buildings 48 and 53 in Endicott, New York.
