The main purpose of this permit amendment is to convert the existing lumber dry kiln with ID No. KL02 from steam-heated batch operation to direct-fired continuous operation and remove Existing Lumber Dry Kiln KL03 and existing Boiler PB01, which will increase volatile organic compounds emissions by approximately 38.7 tons per year (tpy) and will decrease particulate matter (PM), PM10, PM2.5, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide total hazardous air pollutants, and greenhouse gases emission by approximately 5.70 tpy, 5.50 tpy, 5.50 tpy, 2.41 tpy, 47.4 tpy, 58.1 tpy, and 6.84 tpy and 19,300 tpy, respectively. The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) has prepared this Title V Operating Permit Amendment in accordance with Title V of the Clean Air Act. This permit amendment will be enforceable by the Georgia EPD, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and other persons as otherwise authorized by law.
The draft permit amendment and all information used to develop the draft permit amendment are available for review. This includes the application and all other relevant materials available to the permitting authority. This information is available for review at the office of the Air Protection Branch, 4244 International Parkway, Atlanta Tradeport ╨ Suite 120, Atlanta, Georgia 30354.

Any requests for a public hearing must be made within the 30-day public comment period.

Following this 30-day public comment period, the EPD will consider all comments, make any necessary changes, and issue a proposed permit amendment to U.S. EPA. The proposed permit amendment will then undergo a 45 day review by U.S. EPA in accordance with 40 CFR 70.8. Information pertaining to U.S. EPA╒s review period can be found on their website at www.epa.gov/region4/air/permits.
After the EPA review period has expired, the EPD will issue a final Part 70 Operating Permit Amendment incorporating any changes required by U.S. EPA. Copies of the final Title V Operating Permit, comments received, EPD╒s responses to comments, and any other relevant information will then be made available for public review during normal business hours at the office of the Air Protection Branch. A summary of comments and any changes made to the final permit will be found in an addendum to the narrative.
