Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air Title V Facility

Project is Located:

Chili, Monroe County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination, subject to public comment or other information, to approve Renewal 1 of the Air Title V (ATV) Permit for the American Packaging Corp. facility located at 100 APC Drive, Churchville, NY 14428, which manufactures and prints various industrial and commercial packaging.

Facility operations are included under one emission unit (A-00001). This renewal also incorporates the proposed changes requested as part of a minor modification application submitted to the Department in September 2021. This modification was not issued prior to the renewal application being received and is therefore being processed as part of the renewal.

The minor modification adds two (2) new extrusion coating lines with corona treaters with a third thermal oxidizer for emissions control. Additionally, this modification includes the installation of a sleeve washer that was authorized in the initial ATV permit but never constructed. The new extrusion coating lines, corona treaters, and thermal oxidizer are identical in operation to existing permitted sources and controls and are included under the existing single Emission Unit (A-00001).

The facility will continue to comply with 70 tpy VOC limit established in the initial ATV permit and is considered a major source of VOC emissions. After the installation of the proposed new sources, the facility will still be considered a minor source of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions. Existing sources and process continue to be subject to VOC LAER under 6 NYCRR 231-5 as established in the initial ATV permit.

The permit-exempt emergency generator is subject to 40 CFR 60, Subpart JJJJ NSPS for Industrial, Institutional and Commercial Stationary Internal Combustion Engines. The facility must comply with the applicable requirements of the 40 CFR 60, Subpart JJJJ.

Relocation or removal of permit conditions have been made where necessary as part of this renewal to reflect the above changes. Prior permits erroneously contained Emission Source ALDP2 which corresponds to a source that does not exist. This source has been removed from the permit as part of this Renewal. Additionally, emission source/control IDs have been assigned for the existing and proposed permanent total enclosures. Miscellaneous changes to permit conditions have been made to reflect updated regulations or to improve clarity.

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.

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 listed below. The Draft Permit and Permit Review Report may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at:
