A food packaging company with two manufacturing plants discovered an opportunity to purchase a larger plant nearby. The new facility would allow them to consolidate both of the previous facilities under one roof. In addition, the company was looking at purchasing a new printing press. One of the plants held a Title V air permit and was from waiting six to nine months from application submittal to receiving a new Title V from the state. Once the draft air permit for the plant was received, it was too restrictive to the operations. Pinnacle assisted the client in solving the problem in the following ways:
Pinnacle recommended new pollution control equipment that would reduce Volatile Organic Compound emissions from the facility to qualify for a Capped Air Emission State Permit.
Pinnacle completed a Capped Permit Application and the required Ambient Air Quality Assessment in a timely manner. The permit was issued within 90 days.
The facility was able to purchase the new facility, consolidate their operations, and obtained permitting flexibility that was not available under the Title V Program with the Capped option.
Following the move, Pinnacle assisted the facility with air permitting compliance, semi-annual deviations reporting, annual air emission Inventory reporting, and completing the Capped Pre-Change Analysis for combining the two facilities.
