Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Steel Plants: Electric Arc Furnaces and Argon Oxygen Decarburization Vessels (40 CFR part 60, subpart AA) were proposed on October 21, 1974, promulgated on September 23, 1975, and most recentlyamended on February 22, 2005. These regulations apply to electric arc furnaces and dust-handling systems that commenced construction, modification, or reconstruction either after October 21, 1974 or on/or before August 17, 1983 at steel plants that produce carbon, alloy, or specialty steels. In addition, the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for these regulations (40 CFR part 60, subpart AAa) were proposed on August 17, 1983, promulgated on October 31, 1984, and most recentlyamended on February 22, 2005. These latter regulations apply to electric arc furnaces, argon-oxygen decarburization vessels, and dust-handling systems that commenced construction, modification, or reconstruction after August 17, 1983 at steel plants that produce carbon, alloy, or specialty steels. New facilities include those that commenced construction, modification or reconstruction after the date of proposal. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subparts AA and AAa. In general, all NSPS 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, PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31063 and are required of all affected facilities subject to NSPS. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Steel plants that produce carbon, alloy, or specialty steels: Electric arc furnaces (EAFs), argon oxygen decarburization (AOD) vessels, and dust handling systems. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60 Subparts AA and AAa). Estimated number of respondents: 100.66 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 62,700 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $7,350,000 (per year), which includes $207,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This increase is not due to any program changes. The adjustment increase in burden from the most recently approved ICR is due to an increase in the number of new or modified sources, which is based on an assumption of continued growth in the industry. There is also an adjustment increase in capital and operation and maintenance costs due to the increase in the number of respondents. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The SAB was established pursuant to the Environmental Research, Development, and Demonstration Authorization Act (ERDDAA), codified at 42 U.S.C. 4365, to provide independent scientific and technical advice to the Administrator on the technical basis for Agency positions and regulations.

The SAB will comply with the provisions of FACA and all appropriate SAB Staff Office SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 procedural policies. Pursuant to FACA and EPA policy, notice is hereby given that the SAB 2019 STAA Committee will hold a closed meeting to develop recommendations for recipients of the Agency’s 2019 STAA program achievement awards and recommendations for improvement of the Agency’s STAA program. The STAA awards are established to honor and recognize EPA employees who have made outstanding contributions in the advancement of science and technology through their research and development activities, as exhibited in publication of their results in peer reviewed journals. In conducting its review, the SAB considers each nomination in relation to the following four award levels: • Level I awards are for those who have accomplished an exceptionally high-quality research or technological effort. The awards recognize the creation or general revision of a scientific or technological principle or procedure, or a highly significant improvement in the value of a device, activity, program, or service to the public. Awarded research is of national significance or has high impact on a broad area of science/technology. The research has far reaching consequences and is recognizable as a major scientific/ technological achievement within its discipline or field of study. • Level II awards are for those who have accomplished a notably excellent research or technological effort that has qualities and values similar to, but to a lesser degree, than those described under Level I. Awarded research has timely consequences and contributes as an important scientific/technological achievement within its discipline or field of study. • Level III awards are for those who have accomplished an unusually notable research or technological effort. The awards are for a substantial revision or modification of a scientific/ technological principle or procedure, or an important improvement to the value of a device, activity, program, or service to the public. Awarded research relates to a mission or organizational component of the EPA, or significantly affects a relevant area of science/ technology. • Honorable Mention awards acknowledge research efforts that are noteworthy but do not warrant a Level I, II or III award. Honorable Mention applies to research that: (1) May not quite reach the level described for a Level III award; (2) show a promising area of research that the Subcommittee wants to encourage; or (3) show an area of research that the Subcommittees feels E:\FR\FM\28JNN1.SGM 28JNN1
