Public Comment Period: Preliminary Determination of Air Quality Permit Application for Corning Incorporated - Midland


Corning Incorporated - Midland has applied to the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Air Quality (DAQ), Permitting Section, to make modifications to the facility located at 14556 Highway 601 South, Midland in Cabarrus County. The proposed modification revises a previous BACT determination and increases emissions of VOC from the facility-wide cleaning operations.

The facility is subject to review and processing under North Carolina Administrative Code, Title 15A, Subchapter 02D .0530, "Prevention of Significant Deterioration." The facility is defined as an existing "major stationary source." The proposed modification will result in a significant emissions increase of VOC. The Corning Incorporated - Midland application has been reviewed by the DAQ, Air Quality Permitting Section in Raleigh, North Carolina to determine compliance with the requirements of the North Carolina Environmental Management Commission air pollution regulations. A preliminary review, including analysis of the impact of the facility emissions on local air quality, has led to the determination that the facility can be approved, and the DAQ air permit issued, if certain permit conditions are met.

Cabarrus County is classified as an attainment area for all pollutants. Compliance with all ambient air quality standards and the PSD increments is projected.
