Download as PDF 4622 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 17 / Wednesday, January 27, 2016 / Notices application to EPA for recognition in the Partner of the Year Awards program. Responses to this information collection are voluntary. Respondents may claim all or part of a response confidential. EPA will disclose information that is covered by a claim of confidentiality only to the extent permitted by, and in accordance with, the procedures in TSCA section 14 and 40 CFR part 2. Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR are establishments engaged in the production, use, and/or advancement of safer chemicals, that have furthered the goals of EPA’s Safer Chemical program through active and exemplary participation in and promotion of the program, and that wish to receive recognition for their achievements. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary. Estimated total number of potential respondents: 50. Frequency of response: Annual. Estimated total burden: 750 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Estimated total costs: $45,486 (per year), includes no annualized capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. Changes in the estimates: There is a decrease of 900 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease reflects the experience of EPA’s Safer Choice program since OMB first approved this information collection. The Safer Choice program conducted its first Partner of the Year Awards in 2015, at which time EPA had received applications from 35 respondents. Based upon revised estimates, EPA has reduced the estimated number of respondents from 110 to 50, with a corresponding decrease in the associated burden. This change is an adjustment. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Courtney Kerwin, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.

Abstract: These emission guidelines apply to small municipal waste combustors (MWCs) constructed on or before August 30, 1999, that combust greater than 35 tons per day (tpd) but less than 250 tpd of municipal solid waste. The emission guidelines regulate organics (dioxin/furans), metals (cadmium, lead, mercury, and particulate matter), and acid gases (hydrogen chloride, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides). The emission guidelines require initial reports, semiannual reports, and annual reports. Owners or operators also are required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. Owners or operators subject to these regulations are required to maintain records of measurements and reports for at least five years. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Small municipal waste combustion units. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart BBBB). Estimated number of respondents: 23 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, semiannually and annually. Total estimated burden: 102,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $11,200,000 (per year), includes $1,040,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Abstract: These standards apply to the area source NESHAP for chemical manufacturing (40 CFR part 63, subpart VVVVVV). There are nine area source categories in the chemical manufacturing sector: Agricultural Chemicals and Pesticides Manufacturing, Cyclic Crude and Intermediate Production, Industrial Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing, Industrial Organic Chemical Manufacturing, Inorganic Pigments Manufacturing, Miscellaneous Organic Chemical Manufacturing, Plastic Materials and Resins Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical Production, and Synthetic Rubber Manufacturing. The requirements apply to process vents, storage tanks, equipment leaks, wastewater systems, transfer operations, and heat exchange systems at affected sources in each area source category and are combined in one subpart. The standards are based on EPA’s determination of generally available control technology (GACT) or management practices for each area source category. Form Numbers: None. PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4623 Respondents/affected entities: Chemical manufacturing area source facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart VVVVVV). Estimated number of respondents: 498 (total). Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 9,590 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $2,220,000 (per year), includes $1,250,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in the respondent burden and number of responses from the most recently approved ICR. The decrease occurred because the rule has been in effect for three years, and the burden associated with initial compliance (e.g. initial performance tests and notification reports) differ from the burden for ongoing compliance (e.g. submittal of semiannual reports). However, there is an adjustment increase in the total capital and O&M cost. This is primarily due to two reasons: (1) The previous ICR presented capital costs as annualized costs over 15 years, rather than one-time costs; and (2) the total number of sources with O&M cost (i.e. maintain systems and monitors) has increased now that the rule is fully implemented.

burden from the most recently approved ICR. The increase in respondent 
labor hour is caused by a change in assumption; in this ICR, we assume 
all existing sources will take some time each year to re-familiarize 
themselves with the rule requirements. There is also a small increase 
in the total O&M cost due to rounding of all calculated values to three 
significant digits.
