Under section 409(b)(5) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 348(b)(5)), notice was given in the Federal Register of April 18, 2017 (82 FR 18268), that a food additive petition (FAP 2299) has been filed by the Canadian Oilseed Processors Association, 404–167 Lombard Ave., Winnipeg MB R3B 0T6, Canada. The petition proposes to amend Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in part 573 Food Additives Permitted in Feed and Drinking Water of Animals (21 CFR part 573) to provide for the safe use of spent bleaching clay as a flow agent in canola meal for all livestock and poultry species. Additionally, the submission proposes that the existing regulations be amended to provide for the safe use of silicon dioxide (21 CFR 573.940) and diatomaceous earth (21 CFR 573.340) for use as components of spent bleaching clay. This petition included a request for categorical exclusion, but after review we determined the proposed action on spent bleaching clay does not meet the criteria for a categorical exclusion under 21 CFR 25.32(r). The petitioner has prepared and submitted an EA. We are reviewing the potential environmental impact of this petition. To encourage public participation consistent with regulations issued under the National Environmental Policy Act (40 CFR 1501.4(b)), we are placing the EA submitted with the petition that is the subject of this notice on public display at the Dockets Management Staff (see DATES and ADDRESSES) for public review and comment. We will also place on public display, at the Dockets Management Staff and at https://www.regulations.gov, any amendments to, or comments on, the petitioner’s EA without further announcement in the Federal Register. If, based on our review, we find that an environmental impact statement is not required, and this petition results in a regulation, we will publish the notice of availability of our finding of no significant impact and the evidence supporting that finding with the regulation in the Federal Register in accordance with 21 CFR 25.51(b).

ACTION: Proposed rule. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve a state implementation plan (SIP) revision submitted by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The revision updates Philadelphia County’s portion of the Pennsylvania SIP, which includes regulations concerning sulfur content in fuel oil. This revision will implement lower sulfur fuel oil provisions in the Philadelphia County that will reduce the amount of sulfur in commercial fuel oils used in combustion units which will aid in reducing sulfates that cause decreased visibility. This revision will strengthen the Pennsylvania SIP. This action is being taken under the Clean Air Act (CAA). DATES: Written comments must be received on or before April 18, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Erin Trouba, (215) 814–2023, or by email at trouba.erin@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background On June 21, 2018, the City of Philadelphia, Air Management Services (AMS) through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) submitted a formal revision to the Pennsylvania SIP. The SIP revision consists of an amendment to 40 CFR 52.2020(c)(3), the Philadelphia County portion of the SIP 1, in order to implement provisions for lower sulfur levels in commercial fuel oil in Philadelphia County. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions contribute to the formation of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and sulfates in the atmosphere, and subsequently to the formation of regional haze. Regional haze is visibility impairing pollution that scatters and absorbs light. The pollutants that cause visibility impairment come from sources and activities that emit fine particles and their precursors, SO2, PM2.5, nitrogen oxides (NOX), and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The June 21, 2018 SIP revision consists of amendments to the Philadelphia County portion of the Pennsylvania SIP regarding provisions for lower sulfur levels in fuel oil in Philadelphia that are more stringent than the state-wide SIP-approved provisions.2 Since 1972, the Pennsylvania SIP has contained provisions limiting the amount of sulfur allowable in fuel oils in Philadelphia County. In recent years, amendments were made to Title 3 of the Philadelphia Code, the Air Management Code (AMC) and to Air Management Regulation (AMR) III, to lower the maximum allowable level of sulfur in number 2 and lighter fuel oils, to impose more stringent levels on number 4 commercial fuel oils, and to add exemption provisions relating to commercial fuel oil.3 1 The Pennsylvania SIP is set forth at 40 CFR 52.2020(c), with the Philadelphia portion of the Pennsylvania SIP located at 40 CFR 52.2020(c)(3). 2 The regulations in 25 Pa Code Section 123.22 established statewide maximum allowable sulfur contents for certain fuel oil types beginning July 1, 2016. 79 FR 39330 (July 10, 2014). 3 On June 5, 2014, amendments were proposed to Section 3–207 of the AMC (relating to commercial fuel oil) to lower the maximum allowable level of sulfur in number 2 and lighter commercial fuel oils E:\FR\FM\19MRP1.SGM Continued 19MRP1
