Title: NESHAP for Coke Oven Pushing Quenching and Battery Stacks (Renewal).
ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1995.04, OMB Control Number 2060-0521.
ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on August 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 Coke Oven Pushing Quenching and Battery Stacks (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart CCCCC) were promulgated on April 14, 2003.
The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NESHAP at 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, and any changes, or additions to the General Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart CCCCC.
Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-time-only report of any physical or operational changes, initial performance tests, and periodic reports and results. Owners or operators 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. Reports, at a minimum, are required semiannually.
Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 229 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: Coke oven pushing quenching and battery stacks.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 19.
Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, weekly, quarterly and semiannually.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burd en: 25,879.
Estimated Total Annual Cost: $2,361,375: which is comprised of $2,191,875 in labor costs, $169,500 in O&M costs, and no annualized capital/startup costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the basis for labor hours or cost to the respondents in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and Start Printed Page 32580(2) the growth rate for respondents is very low, negative, or non-existent. The previous approved ICR renewal indicated 30 annual responses; after review of the previous supporting statement, it was determined that the number of indicated responses was an error. The total number of annual responses is 113. Additionally, there was a calculation error in the previous estimation of labor hours. The slight increase in burden is due to a correction in the total labor burden from 25,208 to 25,879 per year.Start Signature
