Title: NESHAP for Primary Aluminum Reduction Plants (Renewal) ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1767.05, OMB Control Number 2060– 0360 ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on February 29, 2008. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), for the regulations published at 40 CFR part 63, subpart LL, were proposed on September 26, 1996 and promulgated on October 7, 1997. These standards apply to the owners or operators of new or existing potlines, paste production plants, or anode bake furnaces associated with primary aluminum production and located at a major source, and for each new pitch storage tank associated with a primary aluminum reduction plant that is a major source of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emissions. E:\FR\FM\23JAN1.SGM 23JAN1 ebenthall on PROD1PC69 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 15 / Wednesday, January 23, 2008 / Notices In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports. Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all sources subject to NESHAP. Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least five years following the date of such measurements, maintenance reports, and records. All reports are sent to the delegated state or local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are sent directly to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regional office. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 2,001 (rounded) hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Respondents/Affected Entities: Owners or operators of primary aluminum reduction plants that are major sources of HAP emissions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 16. Frequency of Response: Initially, quarterly, semiannually, and on occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 80,046 hours. Estimated Total Annual Costs: $7,221,357, which includes $0 annualized capital/startup costs, $91,348 annualized Operating and Maintenance (O&M) costs, and $7,130,009 annualized labor costs. Changes in the Estimates: The decrease in burden to industry from the VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:17 Jan 22, 2008 Jkt 214001 most recently approved ICR is due to a decrease in the number of existing primary aluminum reduction plants that are subject to NESHAP subpart LL. The number of facilities in this renewal are less than in the previous ICR due to a more accurate estimate of the number of facilities and the closure of a number of facilities. The closures were caused by economic factors such as the cost of energy. The reduction in the number of respondents to this ICR also resulted in a decrease on the average annual cost for capital/startup and operation and maintenance costs to industry over the next three years of the ICR.

    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1767.05, OMB Control Number 2060-0360
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on February 29, 2008. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor 
the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 
An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to 
respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently 
valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations 
in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when

publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such 
as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The 
display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is 
consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants (NESHAP), for the regulations published at 40 CFR part 63, 
subpart LL, were proposed on September 26, 1996 and promulgated on 
October 7, 1997. These standards apply to the owners or operators of 
new or existing potlines, paste production plants, or anode bake 
furnaces associated with primary aluminum production and located at a 
major source, and for each new pitch storage tank associated with a 
primary aluminum reduction plant that is a major source of hazardous 
air pollutants (HAP) emissions.

[[Page 3953]]

    In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, 
performance tests, and periodic reports. Owners or operators are also 
required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any 
startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected 
facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is 
inoperative. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in 
determining compliance, and are required of all sources subject to 
NESHAP.
    Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall 
maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least 
five years following the date of such measurements, maintenance 
reports, and records. All reports are sent to the delegated state or 
local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated 
authority, the reports are sent directly to the United States 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regional office.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 2,001 
(rounded) hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or 
financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, 
or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This 
includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, 
install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of 
collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and 
maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; 
adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable 
instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train 
personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search 
data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and 
transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Owners or operators of primary 
aluminum reduction plants that are major sources of HAP emissions.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 16.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, quarterly, semiannually, and on 
occasion.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 80,046 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Costs: $7,221,357, which includes $0 
annualized capital/startup costs, $91,348 annualized Operating and 
Maintenance (O&M) costs, and $7,130,009 annualized labor costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: The decrease in burden to industry from 
the most recently approved ICR is due to a decrease in the number of 
existing primary aluminum reduction plants that are subject to NESHAP 
subpart LL. The number of facilities in this renewal are less than in 
the previous ICR due to a more accurate estimate of the number of 
facilities and the closure of a number of facilities. The closures were 
caused by economic factors such as the cost of energy. The reduction in 
the number of respondents to this ICR also resulted in a decrease on 
the average annual cost for capital/startup and operation and 
maintenance costs to industry over the next three years of the ICR.
