Title: NESHAP for Epoxy Resin and Non-Nylon Polyamide Production (Renewal).
ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1681.07, OMB Control Number 2060-0290.
ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on May 31, 2011. 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 Epoxy Resin and Non-Nylon Polyamide Production were proposed on May 16, 1994, and promulgated on March 8, 1995. This ICR contains recordkeeping and reporting requirements that are mandatory for compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart W, regulating hazardous air pollutants from process vents, storage vessels, wastewater systems and equipment leaks. The standards require mandatory recordkeeping and reporting to document process information related to the source's ability to comply with the standards. This information is used by the Agency to identify sources subject to the standards and to insure that the maximum achievable control technology is being properly applied. Section 112 of the Clean Air Act, as amended in 1990, requires that EPA establish standards to limit emissions of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from stationary sources. The sources subject to these provisions emit the HAPs epichlorohydrin, and in lesser amounts, hydrochloric acid and methanol. Respondents are owners or operators of new and existing facilities that manufacture polymers and resins from epichlorohydrin. Source categories include basic liquid epoxy resin (BLR) producers and producers of epichlorohydrin-modified non-nylon polyamide resins, also known as wet strength resins (WSR).
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 EPA regional office. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart W, and 40 CFR part 63, Subpart A, as authorized in section 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The required information consists of emissions data and other information that have been determined to be private.
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 Number for EPA's regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, and are identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable.
Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 214 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 purpose of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining, information, and disclosing and providing information. All existing ways will have to adjust to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements that 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: Epoxy resin and non-nylon polyamide production.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 7.
Frequency of Response: Semiannually, quarterly and initially.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 3,853.
Estimated Total Annual Cost: $370,463, which includes $361,463 in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $9,000 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is no increase in the number of affected facilities, labor hours, or the number of responses compared to the previous ICR. There is, however, an increase in the estimated labor burden cost as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This increase is not due to any program change. The change in the labor burden cost estimates has occurred because we updated the labor rates, which resulted in an increase in cost.Start Signature
