Title: National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions for Polyether Polyol Production, OMB Control Number 2060-0415, EPA ICR Number 1811.03, expiration date July 31, 2002.

Abstract: The National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Polyether Polyols production, (40 CFR part 63 subpart PPP) was proposed on June 1, 1999 and published January 30, 2002. These regulations apply to new and existing facilities that engage in the manufacture of polyether polyols (which also include polyether mono-ols) and emit hazardous air pollutants (GAP). Owners or operators of polyester polyols production facilities to which this regulation is applicable must choose one of the compliance options described in the rule or install and monitor a specific control system that reduces HAP emissions to the compliance level. The respondents are also subject to sections of Subpart A relating to NESHAP.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR Chapter 15. The Federal Register document required under 5 CFR 1320.8(d), soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on January 30, 2002. No comments were received.

Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 248 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
