Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Islip, Suffolk County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to approve, subject to public comment or other information, the application to modify the Title V permit to authorize the installation and operation of three (3) seamer units and two (2) corona treaters. Amcor Flexibles North America Inc. operates a facility at 100 Wilshire Road in Edgewood, Town of Islip, Suffolk County, for the manufacturing of labels for consumer and industrial products. The Edgewood facility already contains provisions for four central-impression (CI) flexographic printing lines, two ink jet printing units, and a flexographic plate-making process (all identified under the grouping of Emission Unit 1-PRINT) and a seamer. The facility is proposing to install two corona treaters and three additional seamers.

Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions generated from solvent based printing operations are captured and controlled through the use of Permanent Total Enclosure technology (meeting criteria for 100% VOC capture efficiency) and the use of two (2) regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTOs). The oxidizers will be operated to perform with minimum VOC destruction efficiencies of 98%. A catalytic oxidizer operates as a backup to be used if one of the RTOs is out of service.

Applicable Federally enforceable annual emission limits are 60 tons per year (tpy) of VOC, 22.5 tpy of nitrogen oxides (NOx), 22.5 tpy of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), and 9 tpy of any individual HAP. These limits were established to meet major nonattainment area new source review requirements, and to establish area source status for HAP emissions. Monthly and rolling 12-month net VOC throughput and fuel consumption records and emissions calculations will be maintained by Amcor to show compliance with the emission limits.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.3(c), the Administrator of the United States 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.
