40 CFR Part 62

[EPA-R05-OAR-2012-0086; FRL-9663-3]


Direct Final Approval of Hospital/Medical/Infectious Waste 
Incinerators State Plan for Designated Facilities and Pollutants: 
Indiana

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: EPA is proposing to approve, through direct final rulemaking, 
Indiana's revised State Plan to control air pollutants from Hazardous/
Medical/Infectious Waste Incinerators (HMIWI). The Indiana Department 
of Environmental Management submitted the revised State Plan on 
December 19, 2011, following the required public process. The revised 
State Plan is consistent with Emission Guidelines promulgated by EPA on 
October 6, 2009. This approval means that EPA finds that the revised 
State Plan meets applicable Clean Air Act requirements for subject 
HMIWI units. Once effective, this approval also makes the revised State 
Plan Federally enforceable.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Rules section of this Federal 
Register, EPA is approving the State's submittal as a direct final rule 
without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a 
noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A 
detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final 
rule. If no adverse comments are received in response to this rule, no 
further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the 
direct final rule will be withdrawn and all public comments received 
will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed 
rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period. Any parties 
interested in commenting on this action should do so at this time. 
Please note that if EPA receives adverse comment on an amendment, 
paragraph, or section of this rule and if that provision may be severed 
from the remainder of the rule, EPA may adopt as final those provisions 
of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. For 
additional information, see the direct final rule which is located in 
the Rules section of this Federal Register.

    Dated: April 9, 2012.
