SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document, whenever ‘‘we,’’ ‘‘us,’’ or ‘‘our’’ is used, we mean EPA. On July 23, 2010, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) submitted a revision to its State Implementation Plan for the control of NOX from Portland cement kilns. emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with PROPOSALS I. Background The SIP revision consists of a regulation to control NOX emissions from Portland cement kilns. Portland cement manufacturing is an energy intensive process in which cement is made by grinding and heating a mixture of raw materials such as limestone, clay, sand, and iron ore in a rotary kiln. NOX emissions are generated during fuel combustion by oxidation of chemicallybound nitrogen in the fuel and by thermal fixation of nitrogen in the combustion air. This SIP revision is based on the Ozone Transport Commission (OTC) control measure to reduce NOX emissions from cement kilns. The OTC members include Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. The OTC was created under section 184 of the CAA to establish regulatory programs to reduce VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:15 May 19, 2011 Jkt 223001 ozone precursor emissions, which includes the reduction of NOX emissions from cement kilns. II. Summary of SIP Revision The SIP revision amends the NOX emission standards in the Title 25 of the Pennsylvania Code (25 Pa. Code) Chapter 145, Subchapter C (Emissions of NOX from Cement Manufacturing), for Portland cement kilns during the ozone season, from May 1 through September 30, 2011, and for each year thereafter. The SIP revision added new definitions and terms, and revised the following: standard requirements which include emission requirements; compliance determination by operating and maintaining continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS) for NOX emissions; compliance demonstration on a kiln-by-kiln basis, a facility-wide emissions averaging basis or a systemwide averaging basis; and reporting and recordkeeping requirements by reporting CEMS emissions data and maintaining an operating log for each Portland cement kiln on a monthly basis that is maintained onsite for 5 years. A detailed summary of EPA’s review of and rationale for proposing to approve this SIP revision may be found in the Technical Support Document (TSD) for this action which is available on line at http://www.regulations.gov, Docket number EPA–R03–OAR–2011–0287. III. Proposed Action EPA is proposing to approve the Pennsylvania SIP revision for the control of NOX emissions from Portland cement kilns submitted on July 23, 2010. This regulation will reduce emissions of NOX from cement kilns to reduce levels of ozone. The reduction of NOX emissions will also help protect the public health from high levels of fine particulate matter (PM2.5), of which NOX is a precursor component. The reduction of NOX emissions also reduces visibility impairment and acid deposition. EPA is soliciting public comments on the issues discussed in this document. These comments will be considered before taking final action. IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the CAA and applicable Federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). Thus, in reviewing SIP submissions, EPA’s role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this action merely proposes to approve state law as meeting Federal requirements and does PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 29181 not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. For that reason, this proposed action: • Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993); • Does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.); • Is certified as not having a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.); • Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–4); • Does not have Federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999); • Is not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997); • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001); • Is not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent with the CAA; and • Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). In addition, this proposed rule, pertaining to Pennsylvania’s control of NOx emissions from Portland cement kilns, does not have Tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because the SIP is not approved to apply in Indian country located in the state, and EPA notes that it will not impose substantial direct costs on Tribal governments or preempt Tribal law.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Throughout this document, whenever ``we,'' 
``us,'' or ``our'' is used, we mean EPA. On July 23, 2010, the 
Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) submitted a 
revision to its State Implementation Plan for the control of 
NOX from Portland cement kilns.

I. Background

    The SIP revision consists of a regulation to control NOX 
emissions from Portland cement kilns. Portland cement manufacturing is 
an energy intensive process in which cement is made by grinding and 
heating a mixture of raw materials such as limestone, clay, sand, and 
iron ore in a rotary kiln. NOX emissions are generated 
during fuel combustion by oxidation of chemically-bound nitrogen in the 
fuel and by thermal fixation of nitrogen in the combustion air. This 
SIP revision is based on the Ozone Transport Commission (OTC) control 
measure to reduce NOX emissions from cement kilns. The OTC 
members include Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, 
Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, 
Vermont, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. The OTC was created 
under section 184 of the CAA to establish regulatory programs to reduce 
ozone precursor emissions, which includes the reduction of 
NOX emissions from cement kilns.

II. Summary of SIP Revision

    The SIP revision amends the NOX emission standards in 
the Title 25 of the Pennsylvania Code (25 Pa. Code) Chapter 145, 
Subchapter C (Emissions of NOX from Cement Manufacturing), 
for Portland cement kilns during the ozone season, from May 1 through 
September 30, 2011, and for each year thereafter. The SIP revision 
added new definitions and terms, and revised the following: standard 
requirements which include emission requirements; compliance 
determination by operating and maintaining continuous emissions 
monitoring systems (CEMS) for NOX emissions; compliance 
demonstration on a kiln-by-kiln basis, a facility-wide emissions 
averaging basis or a system-wide averaging basis; and reporting and 
recordkeeping requirements by reporting CEMS emissions data and 
maintaining an operating log for each Portland cement kiln on a monthly 
basis that is maintained onsite for 5 years. A detailed summary of 
EPA's review of and rationale for proposing to approve this SIP 
revision may be found in the Technical Support Document (TSD) for this 
action which is available on line at http://www.regulations.gov, Docket 
number EPA-R03-OAR-2011-0287.

III. Proposed Action

    EPA is proposing to approve the Pennsylvania SIP revision for the 
control of NOX emissions from Portland cement kilns 
submitted on July 23, 2010. This regulation will reduce emissions of 
NOX from cement kilns to reduce levels of ozone. The 
reduction of NOX emissions will also help protect the public 
health from high levels of fine particulate matter (PM2.5), 
of which NOX is a precursor component. The reduction of 
NOX emissions also reduces visibility impairment and acid 
deposition. EPA is soliciting public comments on the issues discussed 
in this document. These comments will be considered before taking final 
action.

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP 
submission that complies with the provisions of the CAA and applicable 
Federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). Thus, in 
reviewing SIP submissions, EPA's role is to approve state choices, 
provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this 
action merely proposes to approve state law as meeting Federal 
requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those 
imposed by state law. For that reason, this proposed action:
     Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' subject to 
review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 
12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993);
     Does not impose an information collection burden under the 
provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.);
     Is certified as not having a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.);
     Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4);
     Does not have Federalism implications as specified in 
Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999);
     Is not an economically significant regulatory action based 
on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 
19885, April 23, 1997);
     Is not a significant regulatory action subject to 
Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001);
     Is not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the 
National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 
note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent 
with the CAA; and
     Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to 
address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental

impose substantial direct costs on Tribal governments or preempt Tribal 
law.
