Boiler MACT Information Collection Request
Posted: May 24th, 2008Author: All4 Staff
U.S. EPA has submitted a request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve the Information Collection Request (ICR) related to the vacated Boiler MACT (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart DDDDD – Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters). Specifically, the ICR will allow U.S. EPA to solicit information from all affected sources under the authority of Section 114 of the Clean Air Act. U.S. EPA plans to require facilities to complete an electronic survey to provide information about combustion units at their facility. After reviewing the results of the electronic survey, and if deemed necessary, U.S. EPA will then initiate a second Section 114 request that would require owners or operators of combustion units to conduct hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emission testing. Up to 350 combustion units could be required to be tested in various industrial sectors. The sources that will be selected for testing will be chosen at random by U.S. EPA. OMB must approve the ICR before it can be acted upon by U.S. EPA.
