The U.S. Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Engraving and Printing has the potential to emit (PTE) the following air pollutants:

 

FACILITY-WIDE EMISSIONS SUMMARY [TONS PER YEAR]

Pollutants

Potential Emissions

Sulfur Dioxide (SO2)

0.03

Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx)

7.07

Total Particulate Matter (PM Total)

2.39

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)

82.28

Carbon Monoxide (CO)

0.60

Total Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP)

3.68

The PTE of 82.28 tons per year (TPY) of volatile organic compounds (VOC) exceeds the major source threshold in the District of Columbia of 25 TPY of VOC. No other major source thresholds are exceeded based on the above potential emissions. Because potential emissions of VOC exceed the relevant major source threshold, pursuant to 20 DCMR 300.1(a), the source is subject to Chapter 3 and must obtain an operating permit in accordance with that regulation and Title V of the federal Clean Air Act.

The Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) has reviewed the permit application and related documents and has made a preliminary determination that the applicant meets all applicable air quality requirements promulgated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the District.  Therefore, draft Title V Permit No. 035-R1 has been prepared.

The application, the draft permit, and all other materials submitted by the applicant [except those entitled to confidential treatment under 20 DCMR 301.1(c)] considered in making this preliminary determination are available for public review during normal business hours at the offices of the Department of Energy and Environment, 1200 First Street NE, 5th Floor, Washington DC 20002. Copies of the draft permit and related fact sheet are available at http://doee.dc.gov/service/public-notices-hearings.

A public hearing on this permitting action will not be held unless DOEE has received a request for such a hearing within 30 days of the publication of this notice.  Interested parties may also submit written comments on the permitting action.

Comments on the draft permit and any request for a public hearing should be addressed to:

Stephen S. Ours 
Chief, Permitting Branch - Air Quality Division
