Citizen science and crowdsourcing techniques will allow the Agency to collect qualitative and quantitative data that might help inform scientific research, assessments, or environmental screening; validate environmental models or tools; or enhance the quantity and quality of data collected across the country’s diverse communities and ecosystems to support the Agency’s mission. Information gathered under this generic clearance will be used by the Agency to support the activities listed above and might provide unprecedented avenues for conducting breakthrough research. Collections under this generic ICR will be from participants who actively seek to participate on their own initiative through an open and transparent process (the Agency does not select participants or require participation); the collections will be low-burden for ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18019 participants; collections will be low-cost for both the participants and the Federal Government; and data will be available to support the scientific research (including assessments, environmental screening, tools, models, etc.) of the Agency, states, tribal or local entities where data collection occurs. EPA may, by virtue of collaborating with nonfederal entities, sponsor the collection of this type of information in connection with citizen science projects. When applicable, all such collections will accord with Agency policies and regulations related to human subjects research and will follow the established approval paths through EPA’s Human Subjects Research Review Official. Finally, personally identifiable information (PII) will only be collected when necessary and in accordance with applicable federal procedures and policies. If a new collection is not within the parameters of this generic ICR, the Agency will submit a separate information collection request to OMB for approval. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Participants/respondents will be individuals, not specific entities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary. Estimated number of respondents: 17,500 (total). Frequency of response: The frequency of responses will range from once to on occasion. Total estimated burden: 389,083 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $13,784,949 (per year), includes $525,000 annualized capital for operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the estimates.

Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Pulp and Paper Production apply to existing and new 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 (HAP) or 25 tons per year or more of any combination of HAPs. Affected sources are all 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. New facilities include those that commenced construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart S. 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: Owners and operators of pulp and paper mills that are major sources of HAP emissions. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart S). Estimated number of respondents: 114 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 44,438 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $5,191,626 (per year), includes $841,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the 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 PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 current requirements.

    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants (NESHAP) for Pulp and Paper Production apply to existing and

kraft, soda, sulfite, semi-chemical, or mechanical pulping processes 
using wood, or any process using secondary or non-wood fiber and that

    In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications,

    Estimated number of respondents: 114 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
