The required information consists of emissions data and other information that have been determined to be private. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 19 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: Calciners and dryers at mineral processing plants. Estimated Number of Respondents: 334. Frequency of Response: Occasionally, semiannually and annually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 6,434. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $724,410, which includes $615,860 in labor costs, no capital startup costs; and $108,550 in operating and maintenance (O&M) costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in the total estimated burden hours as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The change was due to the fact that there are no new respondents. There is, however, an increase in the estimated labor cost. The increase is not due to any program changes. The change is due to the use of the most updated labor rates. There is a change in the capital/ startup costs vs. operation and maintenance (O&M) costs, which could be attributed to the fact that no capital/ startup costs are incurred because there are no new sources. The only cost that is incurred is for the O&M of the monitoring equipment. Dated: December 20, 2011. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.
