Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Other Solid Waste Incineration (OSWI) Units (40 CFR part 60, subpart EEEE) apply to very small municipal waste combustion units and institutional waste incineration units. A new incineration unit subject to this subpart should meet either one of two criteria: (1) Commenced construction after December 9, 2004; or (2) commenced reconstruction or modification either on or after June 16, 2006. A very small municipal waste combustion unit is any municipal waste combustion unit that has the capacity to combust less than 35 tons per day of municipal solid waste or refuse-derived fuel. An institutional waste incineration unit is any combustion unit that combusts institutional waste and is a distinct operating unit of the institutional facility that generated the waste. Institutional waste is solid waste that is combusted at any institutional facility using controlled flame combustion in an enclosed, distinct operating unit: Whose design does not provide for energy recovery; operated without energy recovery; or operated with only waste heat recovery. Institutional waste also means solid waste combusted on site in an air curtain incinerator that is a distinct operating unit of any institutional facility. In general, all NSPS standards require initial PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 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 with 40 CFR part 60, subpart EEEE. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: OSWI units, which include two subcategories: VSMWC units that combust less than 35 tons per day of waste and IWI units. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60 Subpart EEEE). Estimated number of respondents: 110 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, semiannually and annually. Total estimated burden: 80,800 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $11,900,000 (per year), which includes $2,720,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the estimates: There is an increase in the labor hours or cost in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. The adjustment increase in burden from the most-recently approved ICR is due to an increase in the number of new or modified sources anticipated to be subject to the standard over the threeyear period. The adjustment increase in burden is due to more accurate estimates of anticipated new sources: Based on Agency review, knowledge, and experience with the NSPS program and source category, and the growth rate for the industry should account for conservative growth and minimal burden. The overall result is an increase in burden hours and costs. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.
