Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Direct final rule.

SUMMARY:

On October 30, 2002, and January 10, 2003, Indiana submitted a plan to EPA which contained revised and updated rules to control emissions of particulate matter (PM) from incinerators and carbon monoxide (CO) from incinerators and other industrial categories. The rule changes accomplish several objectives. First, they re-adopt useful elements of regulations which were scheduled to expire because of “sunset requirements” under the Indiana Code. In addition, they incorporate by reference a number of applicable EPA rules affecting certain types of incineration units and clarify which limits pertain to other types of units. The revised requirements will apply to those incinerators in the State where Federal rules or guidelines do not apply. Finally, Indiana has eliminated references to language which is outdated and unclear. EPA is taking final action to approve this State plan revision.

DATES:

This rule is effective January 31, 2005, unless EPA receives relevant adverse written comments by December 30, 2004. If EPA receives adverse comment, we will publish a timely withdrawal of the rule in the Federal Register and inform the public that the rule will not take effect.

II. What Is EPA Approving in This Action?

We are approving revised rules submitted by the State of Indiana that control the emission of PM from incinerators, 326 Indiana Administrative Code (IAC) 4-2; and of CO emissions from incinerators and other industrial categories, 326 IAC 9-1. The State's rules are part of the Indiana plan which, when approved and implemented, will contribute to the continued attainment of the air quality standards for these two criteria pollutants.

Rule 326 IAC 4-2 restricts the amount of PM allowed to be emitted for all incinerators, except those in residential units of four or fewer families and those incinerators identified in the “Incorporation by Reference” (IBR) provisions. Rule 326 IAC 4-2-1 lists the applicable exceptions, including sources already subject to a number of Federal rules and federally-approved State rules which the State incorporates by reference.

Rule 326 IAC 4-2-2 identifies requirements with which all other incinerators must comply. These include a requirement that all incinerators be maintained, operated, and burn waste in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications or in accordance with an operation and maintenance plan, as specified in the rule. In addition, 326 IAC 4-2-2 establishes an emission rate for sources with a solid waste charging capacity of less than 200 pounds per hour, and retains the emission rate for sources larger than 200 pounds per hour charging capacity.

Rule 326 IAC 9-1 restricts the amount of CO allowed to be emitted from incinerators and several other industrial categories. Rule 326 IAC 9-1-1(a) contains the general applicability provisions, i.e., all stationary sources of CO emissions commencing operation after March 21, 1972 and for which an emission limit has been established in section 2 of the rule. Rule 326 IAC 9-1-1(b) lists the applicable exceptions, including sources already subject to a certain Federal rules and federally-approved State rules which the State incorporates by reference.

Rule 326 IAC 9-1-2 specifies emission limits for sources of CO affected by this rule change. They include: Petroleum refineries, ferrous metal smelters and refuse incinerators and refuse burning equipment. All of these sources are required to control their CO emissions by incineration, in a CO boiler, a direct flame afterburner, a secondary chamber or a recuperative incinerator, as specified in the revised rule. The Indiana rule also provides alternatives to these control methods if the method proposed by a source is submitted as an amendment to the State implementation plan and approved by the EPA.

III. Summary of the State Submittal

What Information Did Indiana Submit To Support the Revision?

Indiana submitted material supporting this revision to the State implementation plan on two separate dates. The first was submitted by cover letter of October 30, 2002, and included notices of public hearings, publishers' affidavits, transcripts of public hearings, and a letter requesting the plan revision. The document dated January 10, 2003, included both final rules 326 IAC 4-2, and 326 IAC 9-1, as LSA Document #00-44(F)(2) published in the Indiana Register on January 1, 2003, 26 Indiana Rule 1070.

It should be noted that EPA originally approved PM rule 326 IAC 4-2 on June 22, 1978 (43 FR 26722), as APC 7. In addition, EPA originally approved CO rule 326 IAC 9-1 on August 24, 1976 (41 FR 35677), as APC 16. Both rules have been reissued on several occasions after being recodified, and are about to expire (sunset).[1] Indiana identified these rules for re-adoption because there are sources in the State which should still be regulated by these rules.

In addition, the Indiana amended rule incorporates by reference applicable federal New Source Performance Standards at 40 CFR part 60; applicable State plans for designated facilities and pollutants at 40 CFR part 62; and applicable National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants at 40 CFR parts 61 and 63. A more detailed list of these provisions is provided below.

Indiana has also eliminated references to language which is outdated and unclear. For instance, 326 IAC 4-2 no longer refers to “hazardous materials, pathogenic bacteria, dangerous chemicals or gases, and noxious odors.”

Why Did Indiana Change These Rules?

The rulemaking action is required by Indiana Code (IC) 13, which regulates the expiration and re-adoption of administrative rules. For example, a rule that was adopted under provision of IC 13 and was in force on December 31, 1995, expired on January 1, 2002. The two rules addressed in this action are being revised and re-adopted in order to retain coverage of sources which would otherwise not be covered by any rule if the amended rules were to expire.

What Changes Did Indiana Make?

Indiana requested approval of two amendments to the State rules 326 IAC 4-2 and 326 IAC 9-1. The amendments in 326 IAC 4-2 change the language in the rules to require that incinerators operate and burn waste in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications or with an operation and maintenance plan, as directed in the rule. PM limits remain the same as in the original rule, but are relocated within the rule to accommodate the new and added provisions. Indiana exempted from the rule incinerators that were subject to more stringent PM limits provided in listed Federal and federally-approved State rules. The revised rule outlines elements of an operation and maintenance plan and the responsibilities of the owner or operator with regard to communication with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) on matters of compliance with the rule. This rule revision does not change the provision which exempts residential units consisting of four or fewer families.

The changes in 326 IAC 9-1 eliminate specific references, in the boiler or direct flame afterburner, to flame temperature and retention time in controlling emissions of CO. The rule change directs a source not to operate an incineration unit unless the waste gas stream is burned in a boiler, direct-flame afterburner, recuperative incinerator, or secondary chamber. This rule applies to grey iron cupolas, blast furnaces, basic oxygen steel furnaces, or other ferrous metal smelting equipment Start Printed Page 69534having a capacity of ten tons per hour or more process weight. The rule also applies to sources of CO in petroleum refining operations where catalyst regeneration and petroleum fluid coking units (known as cokers) must be controlled by a device noted above.

What Other Changes Did the Indiana Plan Revision Include?

Indiana incorporated by reference a number of Federal and federally-approved State rules into the State plan. Sources covered by the identified Federal rules are not subject to the revised State rules (326 IAC 4-2 and 326 IAC 9-1).

The regulations listed below have been incorporated by reference in 326 IAC 4-2-1(b)(2). Sources covered by these rules are exempted by the Indiana amended PM rule:

1. 40 CFR part 60, subpart Eb, Large Municipal Waste Combustors for which Construction Commenced after September 20, 1994.

2. 40 CFR part 60, subpart Ec, Hospital/Medical/ Infectious Waste Incinerators for which Construction Commenced after June 20, 1996.

3. 40 CFR part 60, subpart CCCC, Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration Units for Construction Commenced after November 30, 1999.

4. The State Plan approved under 40 CFR 62.3640 through 40 CFR 62.3642, Hospital/Medical/Infectious Waste Incinerators.

5. The State Plan approved under 40 CFR 62.3650 through 40 CFR 62.3652, Large Municipal Waste Combustors.

6. 40 CFR part 63, subpart EEE, Hazardous Waste Combustors.

The regulations listed below have been incorporated by reference in 326 IAC 9-1(b). Sources covered by these rules are exempted by the Indiana amended CO rule:

1. 40 CFR part 60, Standards of Performance for New Stationary Sources.

2. The State Plan approved under 40 CFR part 62, subpart P, Approval and Promulgation of State Plans for Specific Sources and Facilities in Indiana.

3. 40 CFR part 62, subpart FFF, Federal Plan Requirements for Large Municipal Waste Combustors Constructed on or before September 20, 1994.

4. 40 CFR part 62, subpart HHH, Federal Plan Requirements for Hospital/Medical/Infectious Waste Incinerators Constructed on or before June 20, 1996.

5. 40 CFR part 63, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Source Categories.

What Public Review Opportunities Did Indiana Provide?

Indiana published notices of these proposed rule revisions on March 1, 2000, and May 1, 2000, giving first notice to the public of the intent to re-adopt rules 326 IAC 4-2 and 326 IAC 9-1. Indiana announced a second notice of the comment period on October 1, 2000, and January 1, 2001. Indiana held public hearings on March 7, 2001, and August 7, 2002, following publication of notices in newspapers around the State. Indiana provided to EPA copies of the public record of these hearings as part of the submittal of the rule changes. EPA is satisfied that Indiana provided adequate opportunity for public review and comment on this rule revision.

IV. EPA Review and Action

Why Is the Indiana Plan Revision Approveable?

EPA has reviewed the rule changes and found them to be approveable because they continue to provide for attainment and maintenance of the CO and PM air quality standards. This is consistent with section 110 of the Clean Air Act (CAA), which requires State plans to contain control measures to meet requirements of the CAA.

What Action Is EPA Taking?

In this direct final rule, EPA is approving the amended rules 326 IAC 4-2, concerning PM, and 326 IAC 9-1, concerning CO, as submitted by Indiana on January 10, 2003. EPA is publishing this action without prior proposal because we view this as a noncontroversial revision to the State plan and we anticipate no adverse comment. However, in a separate document in this Federal Register publication, EPA is proposing to approve the State's revised plan in the event that adverse comments are filed. The action will be effective without further notice unless EPA receives relevant adverse written comment by December 30, 2004. Should EPA receive such comments, we will publish a final rule informing the public that this action will not take effect. Any citizens and/or the affected community interested in commenting on this action are asked to submit comments to the individual listed at the front of this action. If no comments are received, the public is advised that this action will be effective on January 31, 2005.

VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

Executive Order 12866; Regulatory Planning and Review

Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this action is not a “significant regulatory action” and therefore is not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget.

Executive Order 13211 Actions That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use

For this reason, this action is also not subject to Executive Order 13211, “Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use” (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001).

Regulatory Flexibility Act

This action merely approves State law as meeting Federal requirements and imposes no additional requirements beyond those imposed by State law. Accordingly, the Administrator certifies that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.).

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

Because this rule approves pre-existing requirements under State law and does not impose any additional enforceable duty beyond that required by State law, it does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4).

Executive Order 13175 Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments

This rule also does not have tribal implications because it will not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000).

Executive Order 13132 Federalism

This action also does not have federalism implications because it does not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the National Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). This action merely approves a State rule implementing a Federal standard, and does not alter the relationship or the distribution of power and responsibilities established in the Clean Air Act.

Executive Order 13045 Protection of Children From Environmental Health and Safety Risks

This rule also is not subject to Executive Order 13045 “Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks” (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because it is not economically significant.

National Technology Transfer Advancement Act

In reviewing plan submissions, EPA's role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. In this context, in the absence of a prior existing requirement for the State to use voluntary consensus standards (VCS), EPA has no authority to disapprove a SIP submission for failure to use VCS. It would thus be inconsistent with applicable law for EPA, when it reviews a SIP submission, to use VCS in place of a plan submission that otherwise satisfies the provisions of the Clean Air Act. Thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply.

Paperwork Reduction Act

This rule does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

Congressional Review Act

The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. Section 804 exempts from section 801 the following types of rules: (1) Rules of particular applicability; (2) rules relating to agency management or personnel; (3) rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice that do not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties. 5 U.S.C. 804(3). EPA is not required to submit a rule report regarding this action under section 801 because this is a rule of particular applicability.

Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by January 31, 2005. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this rule for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)

Footnotes

1.  The Indiana rulemaking was required pursuant to Indiana Code (IC) 13-14-9.5, which provides for the expiration and readoption of administrative rules. A rule that was adopted under provision of IC 13 and was in effect on December 31, 1995, expires not later than January 1, 2002. All rules adopted after that date under IC 13-14-9, with some exception, expire on January 1 of the seventh year after the year in which each rule takes effect. Rules that incorporate a Federal regulation by reference are not subject to the readoption process.
