Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Primary Lead Smelting apply to existing and new facilities engaged in producing lead metal from ore concentrates. The category includes, but is not limited to, the following smelting processes: Sintering, reduction, preliminary treatment, refining and casting operations, process fugitive sources, and fugitive dust sources. New facilities include those that commenced construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. They 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 with 40 CFR part 63, subpart TTT.
Form Numbers: None.
Respondents/affected entities: Facilities engaged in primary lead processing.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart TTT).
Estimated number of respondents: 1 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially, quarterly and semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 6,270 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $855,000 (per year), which includes $169,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase of 5 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase is due to rounding of the total estimated burden to three significant digits.
