Download as PDF jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 72 / Monday, April 14, 2008 / Notices Ingredient Production were promulgated on June 23, 1999 (64 FR 33550). Owners or operators of pesticide active ingredient (PAI) production facilities to which this regulation applies must choose one of the compliance options that are described in the rule or install and monitor a specific control system that reduces hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions to the compliance level. The respondents are subject to sections of subpart A of 40 CFR part 63 relating to the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP). These requirements include those associated with the applicability determination; the notification that the facility is subject to the rule; and the notification of testing (control device performance test and continuous monitoring system [CMS] performance evaluation); the results of performance testing and CMS performance evaluations; startup, shutdown, and malfunction report; and semiannual or quarterly summary reports and/or excess emissions and CMS performance reports. In addition to the requirements of subpart A, many respondents are required to submit pre-compliance plan and leak detection and repair (LDAR) reports; and plants that wish to implement emissions averaging provisions must submit an emission averaging plan. Respondents electing to comply with the emission limit or emission reduction requirements for process vents, storage tanks, or wastewater must record the values of equipment operating parameters as specified in 40 CFR 63.1367 of the rule. If the owner or operator identifies any deviation resulting from any known cause for which no federally approved or promulgated exemption from an emission limitation or standard applies, the compliance report will also include all records that the source is required to maintain that pertain to the periods during which such deviation occurred, as well as the following: The magnitude of each deviation; the reason for each deviation; a description of the corrective action taken for each deviation, including action taken to minimize each deviation and action taken to prevent recurrence; and a copy of all quality assurance activities performed on any element of the monitoring protocol. Owners or operators of PAI production facilities subject to the rule must 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:09 Apr 11, 2008 Jkt 214001 to the delegated state or local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are sent directly to the EPA regional office. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart MMM, as authorized in section 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The required information consists of emissions data and other information that have been determined to be private. Since many of the facilities potentially affected by the NESHAP standards are currently subject to new source performance standards (NSPS), the standards include an exemption from the NSPS for those sources. That exemption eliminates a duplication of information collection requirements. In the Administrator’s judgment, pollutants emitted from PAI production facilities cause or contribute significantly to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health. 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 Number for EPA’s regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, and are identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 60 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: Pesticide active ingredient production. Estimated Number of Respondents: 88. Frequency of Response: Initially, quarterly and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 24,168. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,895,079, which includes $236,430 PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20039 annualized capital costs, or $116,600 in O&M costs, and $1,542, 049. Changes in the Estimates: There is a slight increase of four labor hours which was caused by a calculation error in the previous ICR. This did not affect or changed the burden or cost in any way as compared to the previous ICR. The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. Since the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, there is no significant change in the overall burden. Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, the labor hours and cost figures in the previous ICR are used in this ICR and there is no change in burden to industry.

The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: Hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions from chemical recovery combustion sources at kraft, soda, sulfite, and stand-alone semichemical pulp mills cause or contribute to air pollution that may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. Therefore, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) were promulgated for this source category.

This NESHAP covering emissions from chemical recovery combustion sources at kraft, soda, sulfite, and stand-alone semichemical pulp mills relies on the capture and/or reduction of HAP emissions by recovery furnaces, smelt dissolving tanks (SDTs), lime kilns, or soda or sulfite combustion units. Pulp mill owners or operators (respondents) are required to submit initial notifications, 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. Respondents are required to monitor and keep records of specific operating parameters for each control device and to perform and PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 document periodic inspections of the closed vent and wastewater conveyance systems. As much as possible, in order to reduce the burden, the compliance monitoring and recordkeeping requirements are designed to cover parameters that are already being monitored as part of the manufacturing process. All respondents must submit semiannual summary reports of monitored parameters, and they must submit an additional monitoring report during each quarter in which monitored parameters were outside the ranges established in the standard or during initial performance tests. A source identified to be out of compliance with the NESHAP will be required to submit quarterly reports until the Administrator is satisfied that the source has corrected its compliance problem. In order to ensure compliance with these standards, adequate reporting and recordkeeping is necessary. In the absence of such information, enforcement personnel would be unable to determine whether the standards are being met on a continuous basis, as required by the Clean Air Act. 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 EPA regional office. Notifications are used to inform the Agency or delegated authority when a source becomes subject to the standard. The reviewing authority may then inspect the source to check if the pollution control devices are properly installed and operated. Performance test reports are needed as these are the Agency’s record of a source’s initial capability to comply with the emission standard and note the operating conditions under which compliance was achieved. The quarterly reports are used for problem identification, as a check on source operation and maintenance, and for compliance determinations. The standard also requires semiannual reporting of deviations from monitored opacity, as this is a good indicator of the source’s compliance status. Responses to this information collection are mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart MM). Any information submitted to the Agency for which a claim of confidentiality is made will be safeguarded according to the Agency policies set forth in title 40, chapter 1, part 2, subpart B—Confidentiality of Business Information (CBI) (see 40 CFR part 2; 41 FR 36902, September 1, 1976; amended by 43 FR 40000, September 8, 1978; 43 FR 42251, September 20, 1978; 44 FR 17674, March 23, 1979).

Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours or cost in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, the labor hours and cost figures in the previous ICR are used in this ICR and there is no change in burden to industry. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Dated: April 7, 2008.

    Abstract: Hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions from chemical 
recovery combustion sources at kraft, soda, sulfite, and stand-alone 
semichemical pulp mills cause or contribute to air pollution that may 
reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. 
Therefore, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants 
(NESHAP) were promulgated for this source category.
    The control of emissions of HAP from chemical recovery combustion 
sources at kraft, soda, sulfite, and stand-alone semichemical pulp 
mills requires not only the installation of properly designed 
equipment, but also the operation and maintenance of that equipment. 
This NESHAP covering emissions from chemical recovery combustion 
sources at kraft, soda, sulfite, and stand-alone semichemical pulp 
mills relies on the capture and/or reduction of HAP emissions by 
recovery furnaces, smelt dissolving tanks (SDTs), lime kilns, or soda 
or sulfite combustion units.
    Pulp mill owners or operators (respondents) are required to submit 
initial notifications, 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. Respondents are required to monitor and keep records of 
specific operating parameters for each control device and to perform 
and document periodic inspections of the closed vent and wastewater 
conveyance systems. As much as possible, in order to reduce the burden, 
the compliance monitoring and recordkeeping requirements are designed 
to cover parameters that are already being monitored as part of the 
manufacturing process. All respondents must submit semiannual summary 
reports of monitored parameters, and they must submit an additional 
monitoring report during each quarter in which monitored parameters 
were outside the ranges established in the standard or during initial 
performance tests. A source identified to be out of compliance with the 
NESHAP will be required to submit quarterly reports until the 
Administrator is satisfied that the source has corrected its compliance 
problem.
    In order to ensure compliance with these standards, adequate 
reporting and recordkeeping is necessary. In the absence of such 
information, enforcement personnel would be unable to determine whether 
the standards are being met on a continuous basis, as required by the 
Clean Air Act.
    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 EPA regional office. Notifications are used to 
inform the Agency or delegated authority when a source becomes subject 
to the standard. The reviewing authority may then inspect the source to 
check if the pollution control devices are properly installed and 
operated. Performance test reports are needed as these are the Agency's 
record of a source's initial capability to comply with the emission 
standard and note the operating conditions under which compliance was 
achieved. The quarterly reports are used for problem identification, as 
a check on source operation and maintenance, and for compliance 
determinations. The standard also requires semiannual reporting of 
deviations from monitored opacity, as this is a good indicator of the 
source's compliance status. Responses to this information collection 
are mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart MM). Any information submitted 
to the Agency for which a claim of confidentiality is made will be 
safeguarded according to the Agency policies set forth in title 40, 
chapter 1, part 2, subpart B--Confidentiality of Business Information 
(CBI) (see 40 CFR part 2; 41 FR 36902, September 1, 1976; amended by 43 
FR 40000, September 8, 1978; 43 FR 42251, September 20, 1978; 44 FR

    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for

this collection of information is estimated to average 475 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 pulp mills 
with chemical recovery combustion sources:
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 130.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, on occasion, quarterly, 
semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 150,043 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $8,667,298, which includes capital/
startup costs of $123,000, O&M costs of $864,000, and $7,680,298 in 
labor costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours or 
cost in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two 
considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past 
three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three 
years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative 
or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall 
burden.
    Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there 
is no significant industry growth, the labor hours and cost figures in 
the previous ICR are used in this ICR and there is no change in burden 
to industry.
