Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 37246 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 125 / Tuesday, June 30, 2015 / Notices ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2015. 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, are 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: EPA’s Voluntary Aluminum Industrial Partnership (VAIP) was initiated in 1995 and is an important voluntary program contributing to the overall reduction in emissions of greenhouse gases. This program focuses on reducing direct greenhouse gas emissions including perfluorocarbon (PFC) and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the production of primary aluminum. PFCs are very potent greenhouse gases with global warming potentials several thousand times that of carbon dioxide, and they persist in the atmosphere for thousands of years. CO2 is emitted from consumption of the carbon anode. The Partnership effectively promotes the adoption of emission reduction technologies and practices associated with decreasing the frequency and duration of anode effects. Participants voluntarily agree to designate a VAIP liaison, and to undertake and share information on technically feasible and cost-effective actions to reduce PFC and direct CO2 emissions. The information contained in the annual reports of VAIP members is used by EPA to assess the success of the program in achieving its goals and to advance Partner efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 40 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:34 Jun 29, 2015 Jkt 235001 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: Primary Production of Aluminum. Estimated Number of Respondents: 6. Frequency of Response: Annual. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 240. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $22,668, includes $0 annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens.

Abstract: The regulation applies to nine metal fabrication and finishing area source categories: (1) Electrical and Electronic Equipment Finishing Operations; (2) Fabricated Metal Products; (3) Fabricated Plate Work (Boiler Shops); (4) Fabricated Structural Metal Manufacturing; (5) Heating Equipment, except Electric; (6) Industrial Machinery and Equipment Finishing Operations; (7) Iron and Steel Forging; (8) Primary Metal Products Manufacturing; and (9) Valves and Pipe Fittings. The final rule establishes emission standards in the form of management practices and equipment standards for new and existing operations of dry abrasive blasting, machining, dry grinding and dry polishing with machines, spray painting and other spray coating, and welding operations. These standards reflect EPA’s determination regarding the generally achievable control technology and/or management practices for the nine area source categories. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Owners and operators of facilities in the nine metal fabrication and finishing source categories. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart XXXXXX). Estimated number of respondents: 5,800 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally and annually. Total estimated burden: 35,700 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $3,600,000 (per year), which includes $0 for both annualized capital and operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The previous ICR incorrectly carried over burdens and costs from initial activities and divided the total number of respondents by three. This ICR is corrected to reflect the annual, on-going burden and costs for existing facilities. In addition, the use of more updated labor rates results in an increase in total labor costs. The overall result is an increase in burden hours and costs. Courtney Kerwin, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.
