Application ID:

7-0346-00225/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Union, Broome County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and made a tentative determination to approve, subject to public comment or other information, this application by Imperium 3NY (IM3NY), a lithium ion battery (LIB) business, that proposes to construct and operate a manufacturing facility making high performing lithium ion batteries. IM3NY intends to lease 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 DEC required the facility to 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 DEC. Some renovations will be necessary to existing buildings to accommodate IM3NY operations and building code requirements.
