Title: NESHAP for Coke Oven Batteries (Renewal) ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1362.08, OMB Control Number 2060– 0253 ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on December 31, 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 Emissions Standards Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Coke Oven Batteries were proposed on December 4, 1992 and promulgated on October 27, 1993. These standards apply to all coke oven batteries, whether existing, new, reconstructed, rebuilt or restarted. It also applies to all batteries using the conventional by-product recovery, the nonrecovery process, or any new recovery process. Under this rule, all existing batteries must choose a compliance track. Two compliance approaches are available under the rule: the ‘‘MACT (Maximum Achievable Control Technology)’’ track, and the ‘‘LAER (Lowest Achievable Emission Rate)’’ extension track, and straddling both tracks (until January 1, 1998). PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64315 Applicability dates vary depending on the emission limitation the affected facility is subject to. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart L. Owners or operators of coke oven batteries, whether existing, new, reconstructed, rebuilt or restarted, are required to comply with monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements. Owners or operators of the affected facilities described must make one-time-only notifications to select a compliance track and to certify initial compliance. 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. Monitoring requirements specific to coke oven batteries provide information on the operation of the emissions control device and compliance with the visible emissions standard. Semiannual reports of compliance certifications are required. These notifications, reports, and records will be used by EPA and the states to: (1) Identify batteries subject to the standards; (2) ensure that MACT and LAER are properly applied; and (3) ensure that daily monitoring and work practice requirements are implemented as required. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1,908 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: Plants with coke oven batteries using the conventional by-product recovery, the nonrecovery process, or any new recovery process. Estimated Number of Respondents: 19 Frequency of Response: Initially, semiannually, and on occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 80,121 hours E:\FR\FM\29OCN1.SGM 29OCN1 64316 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 210 / Wednesday, October 29, 2008 / Notices Estimated Annual Costs: $6,564,165 exclusively in Labor cost; there are neither annualized capital/startup nor O&M costs associated with this ICR. Changes in the Estimates: Although the assumptions in the burden calculation for this ICR remain the same as in the previous ICR, there is a small change in the labor hours due to the correction of rounding errors. The assumptions remain the same as in the previous ICR 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.

    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1362.08, OMB Control Number 2060-0253
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on December 31, 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

(until January 1, 1998). Applicability dates vary depending on the 
emission limitation the affected facility is subject to. This 
information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part

    Owners or operators of coke oven batteries, whether existing, new,

monitoring and work practice requirements are implemented as required.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1,908 
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: Plants with coke oven batteries using the conventional by-
product recovery, the nonrecovery process, or any new recovery process.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 19
    Frequency of Response: Initially, semiannually, and on occasion.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 80,121 hours

[[Page 64316]]

    Estimated Annual Costs: $6,564,165 exclusively in Labor cost; there 
are neither annualized capital/startup nor O&M costs associated with 
this ICR.
    Changes in the Estimates: Although the assumptions in the burden 
calculation for this ICR remain the same as in the previous ICR, there 
is a small change in the labor hours due to the correction of rounding 
errors. The assumptions remain the same as in the previous ICR 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
