Title: NESHAP for Petroleum Refineries, Catalytic Cracking, Reforming and Sulfur Units (Renewal).
ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1844.04, OMB Control Number 2060-0554.
ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2010. 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 Petroleum Refineries, Catalytic Cracking, Reforming and Sulfur Units (40 CFR part 63, subpart UUU) were proposed on September 11, 1998, promulgated on April 11, 2002, and amended on February 09, 2005.
In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports. 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. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all sources subject to NESHAP. Specifically, data is being collected on performance of the continuous monitoring systems for gasoline vapor and related hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), any excess emissions, and any operating parameter exceedances.
Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least five years following the date of such measurements, maintenance reports, and records. All reports are sent to the delegated state or local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are sent directly to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regional office.
Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 42 (rounded) 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 petroleum refineries.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 132.
Frequency of Response: Initially and semiannually.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 11,040 hours.
Estimated Total Annual Cost: $8,814,941, which includes $983,339 of annualized labor costs, no annualized capital/startup costs, and $7,831,602 in annualized operating and maintenance (O&M) costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the 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 (2) the growth rate for the respondents is very low, negative, or non-existent. Therefore, the labor hours and cost figures in the previous ICR reflect the current burden to the respondents and are reiterated in this ICR. However, there is a correction of a previous error in the calculation of the O&M costs from $6,850,602 to $7,831,602.Start Signature
