Title: NESHAP for Wet-Formed Fiberglass Mat Production (Renewal).
ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1964.04, OMB Control Number 2060-0496.
ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on March 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 Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Wet-Formed Fiberglass Mat Production were proposed on May 26, 2000 (65 FR 34251), and promulgated on April 11, 2002 (67 FR 17823). These standards apply to new and existing component processes at industrial facilities that manufacture wet-formed fiberglass mat including preparation of glass fibers, formation of fibers into a fiberglass mat, saturation with urea-formaldehyde binder solution, curing and drying the binder-coated fiberglass mat, cooling the mat, and trimming, cutting, and packaging.
The monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements outlined in these rules are similar to those required for other NESHAP regulations. Consistent with the NESHAP General Provisions (40 CFR part 63, subpart A), respondents are required to submit initial notifications, conduct performance tests, and submit semiannual reports. They are also required to maintain records of applicability determinations; performance test results; exceedances; periods of startup, shutdown, or malfunction; monitoring records; and all other information needed to determined compliance with the applicable standard.
Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 61 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: Wet-formed fiberglass mat production facilities.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 14.
Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually, and annually.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 1,966.
Estimated Total Annual Cost: $158,672 in annual labor costs and $0 annualized capital or O&M costs. Start Printed Page 10046
Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens.Start Signature
