Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Chemical Recovery Combustion Sources at Kraft, Soda, Sulfite, and Stand-Alone Semichemical Pulp Mills apply to new and existing chemical recovery combustion sources at kraft, soda, sulfite, and stand-alone semichemical pulp mills, for which the chemical recovery combustion sources emit greater than or equal to 10 tons per year (tpy) of any one hazardous air pollutant (HAP) or greater than or equal to 25 tpy of any combination of HAPs. 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 any failures to meet applicable standards, 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 40 CFR part 63, subpart MM. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Chemical recovery combustion sources at kraft, soda, sulfite, and stand-alone semichemical pulp mills. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart MM). Estimated number of respondents: 107 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 122,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $14,700,000 (per year), which includes $831,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is decrease in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This ICR includes a more accurate estimate of the number of new respondents based on EPA’s recent consultations with industry trade groups, which indicated that one new facility will start up in the third year of this information collection, in addition to the one new respondent per year that is an existing facility constructing new process units. This ICR also updates the burden associated with the October 11, 2017 RTR amendments, including removing firstyear costs associated with the amendments, and accounting for the remaining one-time burden for facilities that applies through October 2020.
