Purpose of the meeting
A public hearing to receive comment on a draft permit amendment for Volvo Group North America LLC located in Dublin. Volvo Group North America, LLC has applied for a significant amendment to the permit to modify the New River Plant’s existing integrated cab and plastics paint line to accommodate additional surface treatment emission units and modify the welding process. 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 and is located at 4881 Cougar Trail Road in Dublin, VA. The projected annual emission rates for VOC, PM10 and PM2.5 will not increase; VOC emissions are projected to decrease by 15.9 tons per year and PM10 and PM2.5 emissions are projected to decrease by 0.68 tons per year. The technologies that will be used to control the air pollution from the facility are low NOx burners, dry filters, venturi wet scrubbers, concentrators, regenerative thermal oxidizers, and low VOC coating materials. No adverse impact on air quality near the facility is expected from this proposed project.
