Download as PDF srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 249 / Wednesday, December 28, 2011 / Notices of these voluntary partnership programs. EPA has developed this ICR to obtain authorization to collect information from organizations participating in the GPP and CHPP. Organizations that join these programs voluntarily agree to the following respective actions: (1) Designating a Green Power or CHP liaison and filling out a Partnership Agreement or Letter of Intent (LOI) respectively, (2) for the GPP, reporting to EPA, on an annual basis, their progress toward their green power commitment via a 3-page reporting form; (3) for the CHP Partnership, reporting to EPA information on their existing CHP projects, new project development, and other CHP-related activities via a one-page reporting form (for projects) or via an informal email or phone call (for other CHP-related activities). EPA uses the data obtained from its Partners to assess the success of these programs in achieving their national energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals. Partners are organizational entities that have volunteered to participate in either Partnership program. Burden Statement: Please note that the following burden hour and labor rates may change in the final ICR, pending the application of survey results of Partners. The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to equal 10,407 hours for submission and processing and to average 4.79 hours per year per respondent. The average number of annual burden hours on first-year Partners for each type of one-time response is: 4.4 hours for a Partnership Agreement (a one-time burden for GPP Partners) and 2.5 hours for a Letter of Intent (a one-time burden for CHPP Partners). Annual burden hours on existing Partners for yearly reports are estimated at 2.6 hours for the Partner Yearly Report for the GPP and 3.5 hours for the Partner Yearly Report for the CHPP. Partners from both programs may also submit voluntary updates of simple information, such as contact information or company profiles, via the EPA Web site. These updates would take from 15 minutes to 0.5 hours each. A subset of Partners may participate in brief (i.e., 15 minute) telephone calls with EPA to clarify questions pertaining to the Partnership Agreement or LOI, GPP Yearly Report or CHPP Partner project reporting. All of these activities are included in the annual burden estimate. The estimated number of annual respondents averaged over three (3) VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:22 Dec 27, 2011 Jkt 226001 years is 2,174 which include an average of 1,660 for the GPP and 514 respondents for the CHPP. There are no capital or start-up costs associated with this information collection. The average annual operation and maintenance cost resulting for this collection of information is $3 per respondent. The average annual labor cost is $152.09 per respondent, pending the application of survey results of Partners. The resulting total annual cost for Partners averaged over the three year period is $337,166. In the previous ICR the total cost averaged over the 3-year period was $521,937. The total cost estimate decrease for Partners is due to a corrected downward adjustment in the labor rates used to calculate respondent burden, partially offset by an increase in the number of Partners. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, 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. The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,174. Frequency of Response: Annually, on Occasion, One time. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 10,407. Estimated Total Annual Cost (including Partner, EPA, and contractor costs): $473,979, which includes $0 annualized Capital Startup costs, $6,522 annualized Operating and Maintenance (O&M) costs and $467,457 annualized Labor costs. Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval? Since the last ICR renewal, both the GPP and CHPP have introduced program efficiencies to reduce program burden by encouraging the electronic submission of documents directly to the program support contractors. The average number of hours per Partner PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 81493 remained the same, at 3.24 hours, pending a partner survey to determine the results of these efficiencies. The total hourly burden increased due to an increase in the number of Partners. For perspective on the magnitude of partner growth, the number of Partners at the end of 2008 was 1,286, whereas by the end of 2011 there will be an estimated 1,725. The total cost estimate over the 3-year period for this renewal ICR is $1,421,937, or an average of $473,979 per year, of which $6,522 is O&M costs. The total cost to GPP and CHPP Partners is $1,011,498 ($19,566 is O&M), or $337,166 ($6,522 is O&M) per year. In the previous 2008 ICR renewal, the total cost over the 3-year period was $1,991,978. The total cost estimate decrease for Partners is due to a corrected downward adjustment in the labor rates for respondents, partially offset by an increase in the number of Partners. What is the next step in the process for this ICR? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package then will be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. If you have any questions about this ICR or the approval process, please contact the technical person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Dated: December 21, 2011.

Abstract: The final rule for National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Iron and Steel Foundry Area Sources (40 CFR part 63, subpart ZZZZZ) published on January 2, 2008 (73 FR 225). Potential respondents are owners or operators of any existing or new iron or steel foundry that is an area source of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emissions. Research and development facilities are not covered by the rule. Foundries covered by the rule would not be required to obtain a Title V operating permit. There are different requirements for foundries based on size. Small iron and steel foundries are required to comply with pollution prevention management practices for scrap materials, the removal of mercury switches, and binder formulations. Large iron and steel foundries are required to comply with the same pollution prevention management practices as small foundries in addition to emissions limitations for melting furnaces and foundry operations. Owners or operators must submit notification that the facility is subject to the rule, notification of performance PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 test, notification of compliance status (including results of performance tests and other initial compliance demonstrations), and the semiannual compliance report. Owners or operators of cellulose products manufacturing 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 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 ZZZZZ, 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. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 16 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: Iron and Steel Foundry Area Sources. Estimated Number of Respondents: 427. Frequency of Response: Initially, and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 6,024. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $429,208, which includes $420,718 in labor costs, $8,490 capital/startup costs, and no operation and maintenance (O&M) costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours or cost to the respondents 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 E:\FR\FM\28DEN1.SGM 28DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 249 / Wednesday, December 28, 2011 / Notices the next three years; and (2) the growth rate according to the industry sources is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. There are no new facilities expected to be constructed over the next three years of this ICR. Therefore, the labor hours and cost figures in the previous ICR reflect the current burden on the respondents and are reiterated in this ICR. Dated: December 21, 2011.

Potential respondents are owners or operators of any existing or new gasoline distribution facilities that are an area source of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emissions. In addition to the initial notification and notification of compliance status required by the General Provisions to 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, respondents are required to submit one-time reports of start of construction, anticipated and actual startup dates, and physical or operational changes to existing facilities. Reports of initial performance tests on control devices at gasoline distribution storage tanks, loading racks, and vapor balance systems are also required and are necessary to show that the installed control devices are meeting the emission limitations required by the NESHAP. Annual reports of storage tank inspections at all affected facilities are required. In addition, respondents must submit semiannual compliance and continuous monitoring system performance reports, and semiannual reports of equipment leaks not repaired within 15 days or loadings of cargo tanks for which vapor tightness documentation is not available. All records are to be maintained for at least five years. All reports are to be submitted to the respondent’s State or local agency, whichever has been delegated enforcement authority by the EPA. The information is to be used to determine whether all sources subject to the NESHAP are achieving the standards. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart BBBBBB and CCCCCC, 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.

    Abstract: The final rule for National Emission Standards for 
Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Iron and Steel Foundry Area 
Sources (40 CFR part 63, subpart ZZZZZ) published on January 2, 2008 
(73 FR 225). Potential respondents are owners or operators of any 
existing or new iron or steel foundry that is an area source of 
hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emissions. Research and development 
facilities are not covered by the rule. Foundries covered by the rule 
would not be required to obtain a Title V operating permit.
    There are different requirements for foundries based on size. Small 
iron and steel foundries are required to comply with pollution 
prevention management practices for scrap materials, the removal of 
mercury switches, and binder formulations. Large iron and steel 
foundries are required to comply with the same pollution prevention 
management practices as small foundries in addition to emissions 
limitations for melting furnaces and foundry operations.
    Owners or operators must submit notification that the facility is 
subject to the rule, notification of performance test, notification of 
compliance status (including results of performance tests and other 
initial compliance demonstrations), and the semiannual compliance 
report. Owners or operators of cellulose products manufacturing 
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 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 ZZZZZ, 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.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 16 
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: Iron and Steel Foundry Area Sources.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 427.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, and semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 6,024.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $429,208, which includes $420,718 in 
labor costs, $8,490 capital/startup costs, and no operation and 
maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours or 
cost to the respondents 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

[[Page 81495]]

the next three years; and (2) the growth rate according to the industry 
sources is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no 
significant change in the overall burden. There are no new facilities 
expected to be constructed over the next three years of this ICR. 
Therefore, the labor hours and cost figures in the previous ICR reflect 
the current burden on the respondents and are reiterated in this ICR.
