Purpose of the meeting
DEQ will convene a public hearing on a draft amendment to a Prevention of Significant Deterioration Permit for Volvo Group North America, LLC located in Dublin, Virginia. Volvo Group North America, LLC has applied for a significant amendment to the permit to modify the New River Valley Plant’s existing integrated cab and plastics paint line resulting in the addition of five sanding/touch-up booths and two storage silos. The project is subject to major new source review for VOC, PM10 and PM2.5. The facility is classified as a major source of air pollution. Modeling has shown that the proposed project does not cause or significantly contribute to a predicted violation of any applicable NAAQS or Class II area PSD increment. The maximum annual emissions of air pollutants from the facility are expected to be: VOC (801.4 tons/yr), PM (44.7 tons/yr), PM10 (44.7 tons/yr), PM2.5 (44.7 tons/yr), NOx (46.0 tons/yr) and CO (38.6 tons/yr). The applicant proposes to use 920 x 106 standard cubic feet of natural gas per year. The technologies that will be used to control the air pollution from the facility are dry filters, low NOx burners, air recirculation and regenerative thermal oxidizers. No adverse impact on air quality near the facility is expected from the proposed project.The comment period on the draft permit amendment began on March 14, 2017 and ends on April 28, 2017.
