Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Off-Site Waste and Recovery Operations (OSWRO apply to existing facilities and new facilities with organic hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions that are involved in waste management and recovery operations, and that are not subject to Federal air standards under other subparts in Part 63. In addition, Subpart DD crossreferences control requirements to be applied to specific types of affected sources: Tanks level-1; containers; surface impoundments; individual drain systems; oil-water separators; organic water separators; and loading, transfer, and storage systems. New facilities include those that commenced either construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart DD. In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notification reports, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. They are also required VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:21 Nov 26, 2019 Jkt 250001 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: Facilities that are involved in waste management and recovery operations. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63). Estimated number of respondents: 50 (total). Frequency of response: Semiannually. Total estimated burden: 47,800 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $6,420,000 (per year), which includes $892,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the burden in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. The increase is based on an increase in the number of sources subject to the NESHAP. This also results in an increase in the operation and maintenance costs. This ICR also adjusts the capital and operation and maintenance costs for installing electronic indicators on PRDs on stationary sources per the rule amendments and final action on reconsideration (83 FR 3986, January 29, 2019).

Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants E:\FR\FM\27NON1.SGM 27NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 229 / Wednesday, November 27, 2019 / Notices (NESHAP) for Plywood and Composite Products (40 CFR part 63, subpart DDDD) apply to both new and existing plywood and composite wood products (PCWP) facilities that are a major source of hazardous air pollutants (HAP). A PCWP manufacturing facility is a major source of HAP emissions either in and of itself, or because it is located with other major sources of HAP. A PCWP manufacturing facility is a facility that manufactures plywood and/or composite wood products by bonding wood material (fibers, particles, strands, veneers, etc.) or agricultural fiber, generally with resin under heat and pressure, to form a structural panel or engineered wood product. Plywood and composite wood products manufacturing facilities also include facilities that manufacture dry veneer and lumber kilns located at any facility. Plywood and composite wood products include, but are not limited to, plywood, veneer, particleboard, oriented strandboard, hardboard, fiberboard, medium density fiberboard, laminated strand lumber, laminated veneer lumber, wood I-joists, kiln-dried lumber, and glue-laminated beams. New facilities include those that commenced construction, or reconstruction after January 9, 2003. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart DDDD. 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: Plywood and composite wood products (PCWP) facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart DDDD). Estimated number of respondents: 244 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, semiannually. Total estimated burden: 29,900 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $3,550,000 (per year), which includes $105,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:21 Nov 26, 2019 Jkt 250001 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 is due to several factors. The Agency developed a more accurate estimate of existing and anticipated new sources during the development of the proposed Risk and Technology Review for this subpart. The increase in the number of existing sources led to an increase in burden hours and costs for labor and operation and maintenance. The increase in the number of new sources led to an increase in burden hours and costs for labor, capital, performance testing, and operation and maintenance. New sources are required to purchase and install CMS, conduct performance testing, and send several notifications and reports to EPA. O&M costs for existing sources were updated to reflect more accurate costs for these O&M activities. Also, in the previous ICR, it was assumed that only 10% of sources kept daily records of continuous compliance and annual records of calibration of their CMS; we have corrected this assumption to reflect that 100% of PCWP facilities keep these records. The overall result is an increase in burden hours and costs. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

    Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants

[[Page 65389]]

(NESHAP) for Plywood and Composite Products (40 CFR part 63, subpart 
DDDD) apply to both new and existing plywood and composite wood 
products (PCWP) facilities that are a major source of hazardous air 
pollutants (HAP). A PCWP manufacturing facility is a major source of 
HAP emissions either in and of itself, or because it is located with 
other major sources of HAP. A PCWP manufacturing facility is a facility 
that manufactures plywood and/or composite wood products by bonding 
wood material (fibers, particles, strands, veneers, etc.) or 
agricultural fiber, generally with resin under heat and pressure, to 
form a structural panel or engineered wood product. Plywood and 
composite wood products manufacturing facilities also include 
facilities that manufacture dry veneer and lumber kilns located at any 
facility. Plywood and composite wood products include, but are not 
limited to, plywood, veneer, particleboard, oriented strandboard, 
hardboard, fiberboard, medium density fiberboard, laminated strand 
lumber, laminated veneer lumber, wood I-joists, kiln-dried lumber, and 
glue-laminated beams. New facilities include those that commenced 
construction, or reconstruction after January 9, 2003. This information 
is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart 
DDDD.
    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: Plywood and composite wood products 
(PCWP) facilities.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, 
subpart DDDD).
    Estimated number of respondents: 244 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, semiannually.
    Total estimated burden: 29,900 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $3,550,000 (per year), which includes 
$105,000 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 is due to several factors. The Agency 
developed a more accurate estimate of existing and anticipated new 
sources during the development of the proposed Risk and Technology 
Review for this subpart. The increase in the number of existing sources 
led to an increase in burden hours and costs for labor and operation 
and maintenance. The increase in the number of new sources led to an 
increase in burden hours and costs for labor, capital, performance 
testing, and operation and maintenance. New sources are required to 
purchase and install CMS, conduct performance testing, and send several 
notifications and reports to EPA. O&M costs for existing sources were 
updated to reflect more accurate costs for these O&M activities. Also, 
in the previous ICR, it was assumed that only 10% of sources kept daily 
records of continuous compliance and annual records of calibration of 
their CMS; we have corrected this assumption to reflect that 100% of 
PCWP facilities keep these records. The overall result is an increase 
in burden hours and costs.
