Abstract: The NESHAP for Polyether Polyols Production (40 CFR part 63, subpart PPP) were proposed on September 4, 1997; promulgated on June 1, 1999; and amended on March 27, 2014. These regulations apply to both new and existing facilities that engage in the manufacture of polyether polyols (including polyether mono-ols) and emit hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). Owners or operators of polyether polyols production facilities to which this regulation applies must either choose one of the compliance options described in the rule or install and monitor a specific control system that reduces HAP emissions to the compliance level. Respondents are also subject to sections of 40 CFR part 63, subpart A. New facilities include those that commenced construction, modification, or reconstruction after the date of proposal. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart PPP.
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, and are required of all affected facilities subject to NESHAP.
Form Numbers: None.Start Printed Page 34434
Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of polyether polyols production facilities.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart PPP).
Estimated number of respondents: 23 (total).
Frequency of response: Semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 3,710 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $429,000 (per year), which includes $0 for annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations. First, the regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. Secondly, the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden.
