Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for the Petroleum Refineries: Catalytic Cracking Units, Catalytic Reforming Units, and Sulfur Recovery Units apply to three types of affected units at major source petroleum refineries: Fluid catalytic cracking units (FCCU) for catalyst regeneration, catalytic reforming units (CRU), and sulfur recovery units (SRU). The rule also includes requirements for by-pass lines associated with the three affected units. Owners and operators of affected units are required to comply with PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 reporting and record keeping requirements for the General Provisions (40 CFR part 63, subpart A), as well as for the applicable standards in 40 CFR part 63, subpart UUU. This includes submitting initial notifications, performance tests and periodic reports and results, and maintaining records of the operation of an affected facility. These reports are used by EPA to determine compliance with these standards. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Petroleum refineries that operate catalytic cracking units, catalytic reforming units, and sulfur recovery units. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63). Estimated number of respondents: 142 (total). Frequency of response: Semiannually. Total estimated burden: 17,500 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $10,800,000 (per year), includes $8,780,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the estimates: There is a moderate decrease in burden in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. The decrease in the burden and cost estimates occurred because refineries are assumed to have implemented the initial 2015 rule compliance activities since the standard has been in effect for more than three years. The previous ICR reflected those burdens and costs associated with the initial activities for subject facilities. This includes conducting performance test(s) and establishing or revising recordkeeping systems. This ICR, by in large, reflects the on-going burden and costs for existing facilities. Activities for existing sources include 5-year performance tests, continuous monitoring of pollutants, and the submission of semiannual reports. This ICR also corrects the Agency burden from the prior ICR to account for burden for review of submitted RATA for units using CEMS. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.
