Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Primary Copper Smelters (40 CFR part 63, subpart QQQ) apply to each existing and new copper concentrate dryer, smelting furnace, slag cleaning vessel, copper converter department, and the entire group of fugitive emission sources located at a primary copper smelter facility that is a major source of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions. Major sources of HAP emissions are sites that emit, or have the potential to emit, any single HAP at a rate of 9.07 megagrams (10 tons) or more per year or any combination of HAPs at a rate of 22.68 megagrams (25 tons) or more per year. New facilities include those that commenced construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. They 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. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all affected facilities subject to NESHAP. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Primary copper smelters. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart QQQ). Estimated number of respondents: 3 (total). Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 9,440 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $999,000 (per year), which includes $8,220 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated burden and cost as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This increase is not due to any program changes. The change in the respondent labor hour estimates occurred because of a change in assumption. This ICR assumes all existing respondents will have to familiarize with the regulatory requirements each year. There is also a decrease of 3 responses due to a correction in the number of sources that submit initial compliance determination reports. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.
