Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period deadline identified. II. What is the background for this action? On February 24, 2010, EPA approved into Indiana’s SIP several VOC rules in order to satisfy Indiana’s VOC RACT requirements for the Lake and Porter County portion of the Chicago-GaryLake County, IL–IN, 1997 8-hour ozone nonattainment area. See 75 FR 8246. These rules included new rule 326 IAC 8–17 for Industrial Solvent Cleaning operations that was based on a CTG issued by EPA in 2006. Subsequent to the approval of Indiana’s rule, EPA concluded that low VOC content cleaning solvents were not adequate to clean process equipment and tanks at facilities that manufacture coatings, inks, adhesives and resins. As a result, EPA determined that RACT for these operations was the alternative requirements in the (California) Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s rules, which are referenced in EPA’s industrial solvent cleaning CTG. EPA approved Wisconsin’s industrial solvent cleaning rules for coating, ink, adhesive and resin manufacturing, based on the Bay Area rules, on August 7, 2012 (77 FR 46961). The American Coatings Association requested that that IDEM also adopt a solvent cleaning rule based on the Bay Area rules. In addition, IDEM realized that it had used limits in its rule that were inconsistent with RACT and EPA’s 2006 CTG. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 55235 IDEM adopted these revisions on April 3, 2012, after public hearings on November 2, 2011, and February 1, 2012. IDEM submitted the revised rules to EPA on May 29, 2012. III. What are Indiana’s submitted VOC rule revisions and what is EPA’s analysis of the revisions? Indiana has revised its Industrial Solvent Cleaning rule, 326 IAC 8–17, for sources in Lake and Porter Counties as follows: 326 IAC 8–17–2(c)(11)—An exemption for the cleaning of application equipment used to apply solvent-borne fluoropolymer coatings has been added to the list of solvent cleaning operations exempted from the VOC content limitations in 326 IAC 8– 17–4. This exemption corrects a mistake in Indiana’s adoption of RACT and is consistent with EPA’s 2006 CTG. It should not result in an increase in VOC emissions, as there are no known sources to which it will apply. 326 IAC 8–17–4(a)—The allowable VOC content for cleaning ultraviolet ink and electron beam application equipment, except for screen printing, has been increased from 4.2 to 5.4 pounds VOC/gallon. This corrects a mistake in Indiana’s adoption of RACT and is consistent with EPA’s 2006 CTG. It should not result in an increase in VOC emissions, as there are no known sources to which it will apply. 326 IAC 8–17–4(g)—Alternative cleaning requirements have been added for manufacturers of coatings, inks, adhesives and resins and corresponding recordkeeping requirements have been added in 326 IAC 8–17–7(f). These requirements are based on the Bay Area rules. These requirements apply to cleaning mixing vats, high dispersion mills, grinding mills, tote tanks, and roller mills, and consist of four options: (1) The solvent or solvent solution used must either contain less than 1.67 pounds VOC per gallon or have a VOC composite partial vapor pressure of less than or equal to 8 millimeters of mercury; (2) several work practices must be implemented, including storing all VOC-containing cleaning materials in closed containers; (3) the emissions from equipment cleaning must be collected and vented to an emission control system with an overall control efficiency of 80 percent or more on a mass basis; or (4) no more than 60 gallons of fresh solvent per month may be used and all VOC-containing cleaning materials must be stored in closed containers. The recordkeeping requirements in 326 IAC 8–17–7(f) have been added to determine whether the 60-gallon limit has been exceeded. E:\FR\FM\10SEP1.SGM 10SEP1 55236 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 175 / Tuesday, September 10, 2013 / Proposed Rules In addition, the owner or operator of a facility engaged in wipe cleaning may not use open containers for the storage of organic compounds to be used for cleaning, or for the storage or disposal of any material impregnated with organic compounds used for cleaning. These alternative cleaning requirements are consistent with EPA’s CTG, and will not result in an increase in emissions because there are no coating, ink, adhesive and resin manufacturers in Lake and Porter Counties, where they apply. IV. What action is EPA taking? EPA has determined that these revisions are consistent with this CTG and applicable EPA RACT guidance at www.epa.gov/ttn/naaqs/ozone/ ozonetech/#ref. Therefore, EPA is proposing to approve the revisions to Indiana’s Industrial Solvent Cleaning rules (in 326 IAC 8–17) as meeting the RACT requirements in the Act. V.

For that reason, this 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.

II. What is the background for this action?

    On February 24, 2010, EPA approved into Indiana's SIP several VOC 
rules in order to satisfy Indiana's VOC RACT requirements for the Lake 
and Porter County portion of the Chicago-Gary-Lake County, IL-IN, 1997 
8-hour ozone nonattainment area. See 75 FR 8246. These rules included 
new rule 326 IAC 8-17 for Industrial Solvent Cleaning operations that 
was based on a CTG issued by EPA in 2006.
    Subsequent to the approval of Indiana's rule, EPA concluded that 
low VOC content cleaning solvents were not adequate to clean process 
equipment and tanks at facilities that manufacture coatings, inks, 
adhesives and resins. As a result, EPA determined that RACT for these 
operations was the alternative requirements in the (California) Bay 
Area Air Quality Management District's rules, which are referenced in 
EPA's industrial solvent cleaning CTG.
    EPA approved Wisconsin's industrial solvent cleaning rules for 
coating, ink, adhesive and resin manufacturing, based on the Bay Area 
rules, on August 7, 2012 (77 FR 46961). The American Coatings 
Association requested that that IDEM also adopt a solvent cleaning rule 
based on the Bay Area rules. In addition, IDEM realized that it had 
used limits in its rule that were inconsistent with RACT and EPA's 2006 
CTG.
    IDEM adopted these revisions on April 3, 2012, after public 
hearings on November 2, 2011, and February 1, 2012. IDEM submitted the 
revised rules to EPA on May 29, 2012.

III. What are Indiana's submitted VOC rule revisions and what is EPA's 
analysis of the revisions?

    Indiana has revised its Industrial Solvent Cleaning rule, 326 IAC 
8-17, for sources in Lake and Porter Counties as follows:
    326 IAC 8-17-2(c)(11)--An exemption for the cleaning of application 
equipment used to apply solvent-borne fluoropolymer coatings has been 
added to the list of solvent cleaning operations exempted from the VOC 
content limitations in 326 IAC 8-17-4. This exemption corrects a 
mistake in Indiana's adoption of RACT and is consistent with EPA's 2006 
CTG. It should not result in an increase in VOC emissions, as there are 
no known sources to which it will apply.
    326 IAC 8-17-4(a)--The allowable VOC content for cleaning 
ultraviolet ink and electron beam application equipment, except for 
screen printing, has been increased from 4.2 to 5.4 pounds VOC/gallon. 
This corrects a mistake in Indiana's adoption of RACT and is consistent 
with EPA's 2006 CTG. It should not result in an increase in VOC 
emissions, as there are no known sources to which it will apply.
    326 IAC 8-17-4(g)--Alternative cleaning requirements have been 
added for manufacturers of coatings, inks, adhesives and resins and 
corresponding recordkeeping requirements have been added in 326 IAC 8-
17-7(f). These requirements are based on the Bay Area rules. These 
requirements apply to cleaning mixing vats, high dispersion mills, 
grinding mills, tote tanks, and roller mills, and consist of four 
options: (1) The solvent or solvent solution used must either contain 
less than 1.67 pounds VOC per gallon or have a VOC composite partial 
vapor pressure of less than or equal to 8 millimeters of mercury; (2) 
several work practices must be implemented, including storing all VOC-
containing cleaning materials in closed containers; (3) the emissions 
from equipment cleaning must be collected and vented to an emission 
control system with an overall control efficiency of 80 percent or more 
on a mass basis; or (4) no more than 60 gallons of fresh solvent per 
month may be used and all VOC-containing cleaning materials must be 
stored in closed containers. The recordkeeping requirements in 326 IAC 
8-17-7(f) have been added to determine whether the 60-gallon limit has 
been exceeded.

[[Page 55236]]

    In addition, the owner or operator of a facility engaged in wipe 
cleaning may not use open containers for the storage of organic 
compounds to be used for cleaning, or for the storage or disposal of 
any material impregnated with organic compounds used for cleaning.
    These alternative cleaning requirements are consistent with EPA's 
CTG, and will not result in an increase in emissions because there are 
no coating, ink, adhesive and resin manufacturers in Lake and Porter 
Counties, where they apply.

IV. What action is EPA taking?

    EPA has determined that these revisions are consistent with this 
CTG and applicable EPA RACT guidance at www.epa.gov/ttn/naaqs/ozone/ozonetech/#ref. Therefore, EPA is proposing to approve the revisions to 
Indiana's Industrial Solvent Cleaning rules (in 326 IAC 8-17) as 
meeting the RACT requirements in the Act.

V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the Act, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP 
submission that complies with the provisions of the Act and applicable 
Federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR Part 52.02(a). Thus, in 
reviewing SIP submissions, EPA's role is to approve State choices, 
provided that they meet the criteria of the Act. Accordingly, this 
action merely approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and 
does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by State 
law. For that reason, this 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);
