Purpose of notice: The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking comments and announcing a public hearing on a proposed state operating permit to Kraft Foods Global, Inc., Richmond Bakery, to limit air pollution emitted by a facility in Henrico County, Virginia.  If adopted, the Commonwealth intends to submit the permit as a revision to its State Implementation Plan in accordance with the requirements of § 110(a) of the federal Clean Air Act.

Description of proposal: The proposed revision consists of a determination of reasonably available control technology (RACT) for the control of emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) to the atmosphere from the Kraft Foods bakery located in the Henrico County, Virginia portion of the Richmond Ozone Maintenance Area.  The RACT determination is being made pursuant to 9 VAC 5-40-7370 of state regulations.  A state operating permit is being issued as an administrative mechanism to enforce the RACT determination. The permit is being issued pursuant to Article 5 (9 VAC 5-80-800 et seq.) of 9 VAC 5-80 (Permit for Stationary Sources) of state regulations and is federally enforceable upon issuance.  The permit will establish emission limits for control of VOC.

Federal information: This notice is also being given to satisfy the public participation requirements of federal regulations (40 CFR 51.102).  The proposal will be submitted as a revision to the Commonwealth of Virginia SIP under § 110(a) of the federal Clean Air Act in accordance with 40 CFR 51.104.

How to comment: DEQ accepts written comments by e-mail, facsimile transmission and postal mail.  In order to be considered, written comments must include the full name, address and telephone number of the person commenting and be received by DEQ by 5:00 p.m. on the last day of the comment period.  Due to problems with the quality of facsimile transmissions, commenters are encouraged to provide the signed original by postal mail within one week.  Both oral and written comments are accepted at the public hearing.  DEQ prefers that comments be provided in writing, along with any supporting documents or exhibits.  All testimony, exhibits and documents received are part of the public record.  Please note this proposed permit is being concurrently reviewed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
