Abstract: Respondents are owners or operators of facilities that produce pulp, paper, or paperboard by employing kraft, soda, sulfite, semi-chemical, or mechanical pulping processes using wood; or any process using secondary or non-wood fiber and that emits 10 tons per year or more of any hazardous air pollutant or 25 tons per year or more of any combination of hazardous air pollutants. Affected sources are all the hazardous air pollutant emission points or the HAP emission points in the pulping and bleaching system for mechanical pulping processes using wood and any process using secondary or non-wood fiber. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of pulp and paper production facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart S). Estimated number of respondents: 114 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, quarterly, and semiannually.

Total estimated cost: $5,191,626 (per year), includes $841,000 in annualized capital or operations and maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in the total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This decrease is not due to any program changes. The currently approved burden estimates contain requirements from the previous regulation as well as duplicate burden activities. In preparing this ICR renewal, EPA has removed duplicate items and updated the ICR so that it only reflects current requirements. This results in an apparent decrease in burden.
