Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Municipal Waste Combustors apply to existing and new facilities with a Start Printed Page 65672municipal waste combustor unit capacity greater than 225 megagrams per day of municipal solid waste. In general, all NSPS 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 60, subparts Ea and Eb.
Form numbers: None.
Respondents/affected entities: Owners and operators of municipal waste combustor (MWC) facilities.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subparts Ea and Eb).
Estimated number of respondents: 23.
Frequency of response: Initially, quarterly and semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 34,900 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $3,440,000 (per year), which includes $226,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the estimates: There is an increase in the respondent burdens from the most recent ICR. The adjustments are due to a change in the number of sources subject to each Subpart, which was revised to reflect more recent information obtained through the Agency's research within the MWC sector.
