VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:27 Aug 26, 2016 Jkt 238001 Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NESHAP (40 CFR part 63, subpart A), and any changes, or additions, to the Provisions are specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart O. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit initial notification, performance tests, and periodic reports and results. Owners or operators are also 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. Reports, at a minimum, are required semiannually. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Ethylene oxide sterilization and fumigation facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart O). Estimated number of respondents: 125 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 9,200 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $1,630,000 (per year), which includes $681,000 in either annualized capital/startup or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in respondent burden in this ICR from the most recently approved ICR. This is due to several reasons: (1) This ICR assumes all existing sources will have to refamiliarize with the regulatory requirements each year; (2) there is an estimated increase in the respondent universe since the last ICR, with an addition of two new sources per year; and (3) the number of responses associated with waiver request and alternative method/monitoring was corrected for consistency. This results in an increase in the labor hours, costs, and total number of responses. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

Abstract: EPA’s Office of Land and Emergency Management Sustainable Food Management (SFM) program is designed to advance sustainable food management practices throughout the United States by preventing and diverting wasted food from landfills. The focal point of the SFM program is the Food Recovery Challenge in which organizations pledge to improve their sustainable food management practices. The success of the SFM program efforts to divert wasted food from landfills requires sufficient capacity to process the diverted materials which includes composting and anaerobic digestion operations. In addition to increasing opportunity to process wasted food diverted from the municipal solid waste stream, anaerobic digesters achieve social, environmental and economic benefits, such as generation of renewable energy, reduction of methane emissions, and opportunities to improve soil health through the production of soil amendments. The SFM program supports these efforts by educating state and local governments and communities about the benefits of wasted food diversion. The SFM program also builds partnerships with state agencies and other strategic partners interested in developing organics recycling capacity and provides tools to assist organizations in developing anaerobic digestion (AD) projects. This information collection consists of a request for data not currently available on AD facilities processing wasted food as well as a review and update of the existing SFM AD facility inventory. Correspondence will include an electronic survey through which respondents can provide new information on their AD projects and an update to the existing AD facility inventory, if appropriate.

Abstract: RadNet is a national network of stations collecting sampling media that include air, precipitation, and drinking water. Samples are sent to EPA’s National Analytical Radiation Environmental Lab (NAREL) in Montgomery, Alabama, where they are analyzed for radioactivity. RadNet provides emergency response/homeland security and ambient monitoring information on levels of environmental radiation across the nation. All stations, usually operated by state and local personnel, participate in RadNet voluntarily. Station operators complete information forms that accompany the samples. The forms request information pertaining to sample type, sample location, start and stop date and times for sampling, length of sampling period, and volume represented. Data from RadNet are made available regularly on the Agency Web sites—Envirofacts and the EPA Web site www.epa.gov/radnet. Form Numbers: 5900–23, 5900–24, 5900–27, 5900–29.
