Title: NESHAP Emissions for Polyether Polyol Production (Renewal)
ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1811.06, OMB Control Number 2060-0415.
ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2009. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 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 in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
Abstract: The National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Polyether Polyols Production, (40 CFR part 63 subpart PPP) was proposed on June l, 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 (HAP).
Owners or operators of polyether 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. Compliance is assumed through initial performance testing or design analysis, as appropriate, and ongoing compliance is demonstrated through parametric monitoring. The respondents are also subject to sections of 40 CFR part 63 subpart A.
Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 72 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 which have subsequently changed; 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.
Respondents/Affected Entities: Owners or operators of facilities that manufacture polyether polyols.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 82.
Frequency of Response: Initially, and semi-annually.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 13,042.
Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,243,954, which includes $1,040,942 in annual labor costs, $203,012 in annualized capital costs, and $0 for O&M costs.
Changes in the Estimates: The decrease in burden is due to an Agency correction in the number of responses from 190 to 180 per year.Start Signature
