Abstract: Respondents are owners or operators of sulfuric acid plants. A sulfuric acid plant is any facility producing sulfuric acid (H2 SO4) by the contact process by burning elemental sulfur, alkylation acid, hydrogen sulfide, organic sulfides and mercaptans, or acid sludge. A sulfuric acid plant does not include facilities where conversion to sulfuric acid is used primarily as a means of preventing emissions to the atmosphere of sulfur dioxide (SO2) or other sulfur compounds.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of sulfuric acid plants.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart H).

Estimated number of respondents: 53 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 13,409 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $1,551,276 (per year), which includes $238,500 in either annualized capital and/or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 4,815 hours in the total estimated respondent burden in this ICR as compared to the ICR currently approved by OMB. This is not due to any program changes; rather, it is due to the correction of a mathematical error.
