ACTION: Proposed amendment and request for comment. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, also ‘‘the Agency’’ or ‘‘we’’ in this preamble) is proposing to modify an exclusion (or ‘‘delisting’’) from the lists of hazardous waste previously granted to Nissan North America, Inc. (Nissan) in Smyrna, Tennessee. This action responds to a petition for amendment submitted by Nissan to increase the maximum annual volume covered by its current exclusion for a F019 listed hazardous waste. The Agency is basing its tentative decision to grant the petition for amendment on an evaluation of specific information provided by the petitioner. This tentative decision, if finalized, would increase the annual volume of waste conditionally excluded from the requirements of the hazardous waste regulations under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). DATES: EPA is requesting public comments on this proposed amendment. We will accept comments on this proposal until August 8, 2005. Comments postmarked after the close of the comment period will be stamped ‘‘late.’’ These late comments may not be considered in formulating a final decision. Any person may request a hearing on this tentative decision to grant the petition for amendment by filing a request by July 11, 2005. The request must contain the information prescribed in 40 CFR 260.20(d). VerDate jul<14>2003 16:57 Jun 23, 2005 Jkt 205001 Please send two copies of your comments to Daryl R. Himes, South Enforcement and Compliance Section, RCRA Enforcement and Compliance Branch, Waste Management Division, U.S. EPA Region 4, 61 Forsyth Street SW., Atlanta, GA, 30303. Comments may also be sent to Daryl R. Himes via email at Himes.Daryl@epa.gov. Your request for a hearing should be addressed to Narindar M. Kumar, Chief, RCRA Enforcement and Compliance Branch, Waste Division, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 4, Atlanta Federal Center, 61 Forsyth Street SW., Atlanta, Georgia 30303. The RCRA regulatory docket for this proposed rule is located at the offices of U.S. EPA Region 4, 61 Forsyth Street SW., Atlanta, GA, 30303, and is available for your viewing from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except on Federal holidays.

National Technology Transfer and Advancements Act XV. Executive Order 13132 Federalism I. Background A. What Laws and Regulations Give EPA the Authority To Delist Waste? EPA published amended lists of hazardous wastes from nonspecific and specific sources on January 16, 1981, as part of its final and interim final regulations implementing Section 3001 of RCRA. These lists have been amended several times, and are found at 40 CFR 261.31 and 261.32. We list these wastes as hazardous because: (1) They typically and frequently exhibit one or more of the characteristics of hazardous wastes identified in Subpart C of 40 CFR Part 261 (i.e., ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, and toxicity), or (2) they meet the criteria for listing contained in 40 CFR 261.11(a)(2) or (a)(3). Individual waste streams may vary, however, depending on raw materials, industrial processes, and other factors. Thus, while a waste that is described in these regulations generally is hazardous, a specific waste from an individual facility meeting the listing description may not be. For this reason, 40 CFR 260.20 and 260.22 provide an exclusion procedure which allows a person to demonstrate that a specific listed waste from a particular generating facility should not be regulated as a hazardous waste, and should, therefore, be delisted. According to 40 CFR 260.22(a)(1), in order to have these wastes excluded a petitioner must first show that wastes generated at its facility do not meet any of the criteria for which the wastes were listed. The criteria which we use to list wastes are found in 40 CFR 261.11. An explanation of how these criteria apply to a particular waste is contained in the background document for that listed waste. In addition to the criteria that we considered when we originally listed the waste, we are also required by the provisions of 40 CFR 260.22(a)(2) to consider any other factors (including additional constituents), if there is a reasonable basis to believe that these factors could cause the waste to be hazardous. In a delisting petition, the petitioner must demonstrate that the waste does not exhibit any of the hazardous waste characteristics defined in Subpart C of E:\FR\FM\24JNP1.SGM 24JNP1

Allegheny County

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve a revision to the Allegheny County 
portion of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania State Implementation Plan 
(SIP). This revision, submitted by the Pennsylvania Department of 
Environmental Protection (PADEP) on behalf of the Allegheny County 
Health Department (ACHD), establishes standards and requirements to 
control volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions from aerospace, 
mobile equipment, and wood furniture surface coating applications, and 
modifies existing regulations for general and specific coating 
processes. This revision updates the ACHD's regulations to make them 
consistent with the Commonwealth's SIP-approved regulations regarding 
the affected surface coating processes. In the Final Rules section of 
this Federal Register, EPA is approving the State's SIP submittal as a 
direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views this 
as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A

this action, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives 
adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and all 
public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule
