Hazardous waste combustors include: Hazardous waste incinerators, hazardous waste cement kilns, hazardous waste lightweight aggregate kilns, hazardous waste solid fuel boilers, hazardous waste liquid fuel boilers, and hazardous waste hydrochloric acid production furnaces. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-time-only report of any physical or operational changes, notification of exceedances, notification of performance test and continuous monitoring system evaluation, notification of intent to comply, notification of compliance, notification if the owner or operator elects to comply with alternative requirements, initial performance tests, and periodic reports and results.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of combustion units burning hazardous waste, States.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart EEE).

Estimated number of respondents: 192.

Frequency of response: Occasionally.

Total estimated burden: 142,381 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).

Total estimated cost: $19,945,848 (per year), includes $4,052,444 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the estimates: There is decrease of 66 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This small decrease is due to the slight decrease in the number of incinerators from last time.
