[EPA-R01-OAR-2012-0848; A-1-FRL-9913-00-Region 1]


Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; 
New Hampshire; Reasonably Available Control Technology for Nitrogen 
Oxides and Volatile Organic Compounds

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Direct final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving State 
Implementation Plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the State of New 
Hampshire. These revisions contain an updated regulation establishing 
reasonably available control technology (RACT) for sources of nitrogen 
oxides (NOX), four updated source-specific orders for either 
volatile organic compound (VOC) or NOX RACT, and a request 
to withdraw from the SIP a previously approved NOX RACT 
order. The intended effect of this action is to approve the updated 
NOX RACT regulation and updated VOC and NOX RACT 
orders into the New Hampshire SIP, and to also approve New Hampshire's 
request to remove one NOX RACT order from the SIP. This 
action is being taken in accordance with the Clean Air Act.

DATES: This direct final rule will be effective October 20, 2014, 
unless EPA receives adverse comments by September 22, 2014. If adverse 
comments are received, EPA will publish a timely withdrawal of the 
direct final rule in the Federal Register informing the public that the 
rule will not take effect.

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

I. Background and Purpose

    On March 31, 2011, the State of New Hampshire submitted a formal 
request for a revision to its State Implementation Plan (SIP). The 
requested SIP revision consists of updates to and a renumbering of its 
existing regulation establishing reasonably available control 
technology (RACT) for sources of nitrogen oxides (NOX). 
Additionally, New Hampshire submitted facility specific VOC or 
NOX RACT orders for the following four facilities on the 
dates noted: Concord Litho Group, submitted December 31, 2013; Gorham 
Paper and Tissue, LLC, submitted October 19, 2012; Sturm, Ruger & 
Company, Inc., submitted February 4, 2013; and Textile Tapes 
Corporation, submitted November 16, 2012. Of final note, on December 
16, 2013, New Hampshire submitted a

[[Page 49459]]

request to withdraw a previously approved NOX RACT order for 
Plymouth State College from the SIP. For background on the Clean Air 
Act requirement for RACT and how it relates to New Hampshire, see 77 FR 
66388, November 5, 2012.

II. Description of Submittals

1. Part Env-A 1300, NOX RACT

    EPA has approved previous versions of New Hampshire's 
NOX RACT rule for both the 1-hour ozone and 1997 8-hour 
ozone standards into the New Hampshire SIP. Our initial approval of New 
Hampshire's NOX RACT rule occurred on April 9, 1997 (see 62 
FR 17092), and we approved an update to that rule in the Federal 
Register on November 5, 2012 (see 77 FR 66388). Today's action approves 
the minor updates described below, and also incorporates a renumbering 
of this regulation from Part Env-A 1211, as it was formerly identified 
in our two previous actions, to Chapter Env-A 1300. New Hampshire did 
not submit Env-A 1300, NOX RACT, on March 31, 2011 to meet 
its RACT obligation under the national ambient air quality standard 
(NAAQS) for ozone revised by EPA in 2008.
    In relation to the renumbering, we also note that on November 8, 
2012 (see 77 FR 66921), we approved into the New Hampshire SIP the 
State's VOC RACT rule, a portion of which, at the time of our approval, 
was codified at Part Env-A 1211 (the same codification associated with 
our November 5, 2012 and earlier NOX RACT approvals). Our 
approval of New Hampshire's VOC RACT regulation on November 8, 2012, 
therefore had the inadvertent effect of ``overwriting'' New Hampshire's 
NOX RACT SIP regulations in the official compilation of the 
SIP maintained by EPA and the Office of the Federal Register. In 
accordance with our error correction authority under CAA section 
110(k)(6), we are correcting the error caused by our inadvertent 
``overwriting'' of New Hampshire's NOX RACT regulations by 
revising the official compilation of the New Hampshire SIP to include 
Part Env-A 1300, NOX RACT. Apart from the recodification and 
error correction described above, the substantive changes being made to 
New Hampshire's NOX RACT rule are described below.
a. Revision Applicable to Emission Units Using Electronic Timing
    New Hampshire's original regulation had required all internal 
combustion engines to undergo a manual timing adjustment, but 
experience gained through implementation of that requirement indicated 
that manual adjustments to units equipped with electronic timing were 
not feasible. Additionally, most new engines were equipped with 
electronic timing. Therefore, New Hampshire has removed the requirement 
for manual timing adjustments for units equipped with electronic 
timing, but retained the requirement for units that are not equipped 
with electronic timing.
b. Consolidation of Requirements for Testing, Recordkeeping, and 
Recording
    New Hampshire's air pollution control regulations include Part Env-
A 800, Testing and Monitoring Procedures, and Part Env-A 900, Owner or 
Operator Recordkeeping and Reporting Obligations. These rules have been 
approved into the New Hampshire SIP. See 77 FR 66388, November 5, 2012. 
New Hampshire's updated NOX RACT regulation clarifies and 
updates the cross-referencing to these two rules.
c. Clarification of Use of Discrete Emission Reductions for Compliance
    Part Env-A 1315.03(a) was added to clarify that sources subject to 
the state's NOX RACT rule could comply by the purchase or 
generation of discrete emission reduction credits pursuant to Env-A 
3100, Discrete Emission Reduction Trading Program. However, as noted 
within our approval of New Hampshire's RACT certification for the 1997 
8-Hour ozone standard (77 FR 66388; November 5, 2012), Env-A 3100 has 
not been approved into the New Hampshire SIP. Therefore, any order 
issued by the New Hampshire DES that provides for compliance with 
NOX RACT by use of Env-A 3100 will need to be approved into 
the New Hampshire SIP.
d. Clarification of Procedures for Issuance of a RACT Order
    Part Env-A 1316, NOX RACT Orders, was amended to clarify 
for the regulated community the steps that must be taken to request a 
NOX RACT order containing a NOX RACT limit that 
differs from those found within Env-A 1300. This section was also 
expanded to describe the actions that the New Hampshire DES will take 
upon receipt of such a request, including submitting the order to EPA 
as a SIP revision, and the maximum amount of time the state agency will 
take to complete these actions.
e. Change to Wording of Applicability Section
    Part Env-A 1301.02, Applicability, was amended by inserting 
language in certain subsections to clarify for the regulated community 
the universe of sources subject to NOX RACT. The language in 
question, ``and the permitting applicability levels specified in Env-A 
607.01 are met,'' was added to Env-A 1301.02(b), for example. Env-A 
1301.02(b) is the provision of New Hampshire's NOX RACT 
regulations defining the universe of utility boilers subject to 
NOX RACT. Env-A 607.01, referenced in Env-A 1301.02(b), is 
the section of New Hampshire's statewide permit regulations containing 
preconstruction (or temporary) permit requirements for new and modified 
sources.\1\ In the ``Response to Comments'' document included in the 
March 31, 2011 SIP submittal, New Hampshire DES explained that the new 
language is intended only to indicate that the permitting applicability 
levels (i.e., source ``sizes'') contained in Env-607.01 must also be 
met before NOX RACT applies. Furthermore, New Hampshire 
clarified that the new language is not intended to suggest that only 
new or modified emissions units are subject to NOX RACT, 
i.e. that the added language is consistent with a requirement that 
existing sources are also subject to NOX RACT under New 
Hampshire's regulation. EPA is therefore approving the added language 
because it is consistent with CAA requirements for NOX RACT 
applicability.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Note that Env-A 607.01 is the section of New Hampshire's 
state regulations containing the permitting requirements in 
question, and that Env-A 607.01 is one subsection of Env-A 600, New 
Hampshire's Statewide Permit System regulations. The permit 
requirements now codified in Env-A 607.01 under state law were 
approved earlier by EPA into the New Hampshire SIP in a different 
section of Part Env-A 600 (Statewide Permit System).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

f. Cross Reference to Env-A 2000
    On June 30, 2014, New Hampshire submitted a letter requesting that 
a phrase within Env-A 1311.03(a)(5) not be incorporated into the SIP 
because it cross-references a New Hampshire state regulation, Env-A 
2000, that is not a part of the SIP. Therefore, as requested, we are 
not approving the phrase ``or any opacity standard specified in Env-A 
2000'' in subparagraph Env-A 1311.03(a)(5).

2. NOX RACT for Gorham Paper and Tissue

    On October 19, 2012, New Hampshire submitted NOX RACT 
Order No. ARD-97-003 for the Gorham Paper and Tissue facility located 
in Gorham, New Hampshire, as a revision to the SIP. The premises was 
formerly owned and operated by the Crown Vantage

[[Page 49460]]

Company, and New Hampshire DES originally issued RACT Order No. ARD-97-
003 on September 24, 1997. New Hampshire DES submitted that original 
order to EPA as a SIP revision request, and we approved it into the New 
Hampshire SIP on May 13, 1998. See 63 FR 26455. On May 13, 2011, Gorham 
Paper and Tissue acquired ownership of the facility, and on January 20, 
2012, submitted a NOX RACT Analysis and RACT Order 
Application for a new tissue dryer machine. On October 19, 2012, New 
Hampshire DES issued an update of Order No. ARD-97-003 to the facility, 
and submitted the order to EPA as a SIP revision request on that same 
day.
    The updated order establishes NOX RACT for the tissue 
drying machine, requiring the installation and operation of ultra low 
NOX burners, and an emission limitation of 0.035 lbs/mmBTU 
on a 24-hour calendar day average. The order also requires that initial 
and periodic stack tests be conducted. Additionally, the updated order 
adds a NOX RACT emission limit of 0.25 lbs/mmBTU based on a 
24-hour calendar day average for Boilers 1 and 2 at the facility when 
these boilers combust natural gas, and also provides testing 
requirements for these units. Lastly, a number of RACT requirements 
applicable to equipment that has been removed from the facility were 
deleted from the RACT order. EPA is approving this revised order 
because it is consistent with CAA requirements for NOX RACT 
and with New Hampshire's NOX RACT regulation.

3. NOX RACT for Plymouth State College

    On December 16, 2013, New Hampshire DES submitted a request to 
withdraw from the SIP a NOX RACT order previously issued to 
Plymouth State College. Prior to 2013, Plymouth State routinely 
operated two electrical generators to provide power to the facility. 
During 2013, a decision was made to purchase all of the College's 
electricity from the grid, and to keep the two electrical generators as 
emergency backup generators. While functioning as a primary source of 
electricity for Plymouth State, operation of the generators was 
regulated by the requirements of NOX RACT order ARD-95-002, 
issued to Plymouth Cogeneration Limited Partnership, which was approved 
into the New Hampshire SIP on April 9, 1997. See 62 FR 17087. As 
emergency generators, the operation of these units are now governed by 
New Hampshire regulation Env-A 1311, Emergency Generators, thus 
obviating the need for NOX RACT order ARD-95-002. 
Accordingly, New Hampshire DES issued rescission of Final RACT Order 
No. ARD-95-002, dated December 16, 2013. EPA is therefore approving New 
Hampshire's request to withdraw the facility's NOX RACT 
order from the SIP.

4. VOC RACT for Concord Litho Group

    On December 31, 2013, New Hampshire DES submitted an updated VOC 
RACT order for the Concord Litho Group located in Concord, New 
Hampshire. The primary cause for updating the order was to remove 
specific set point temperatures for the two regenerative thermal 
oxidizers used by the facility to reduce VOC emissions. In place of 
these defined set points, New Hampshire has updated the order with a 
requirement that the temperature set points be determined by the most 
recently approved stack test that successfully demonstrated at least a 
90% destruction efficiency. This update was made in light of the 
facility's periodic stack testing requirement, and the unique 
temperature set points that these tests produce. EPA is approving this 
revised order because it is consistent with CAA requirements for VOC 
RACT and with New Hampshire's Chapter Env-A 1200, VOC RACT regulation.

5. VOC RACT for Sturm, Ruger & Company

    On February 4, 2013, New Hampshire DES submitted an updated VOC 
RACT order for the Sturm, Ruger & Company facility located in Newport, 
New Hampshire. Previously, EPA approved VOC RACT Order No. ARD-03-001 
into the New Hampshire SIP within a final rule published in the Federal 
Register on November 15, 2012. See 77 FR 66388. The updated order 
contains VOC limits for two new processes at the facility, a stainless 
steel bluing line, and a camouflage image transfer and coating line.
    The bluing line uses a rustproofing fluid with a low vapor pressure 
referred to as ``Pen Dip Super.'' This fluid has a low vapor pressure 
which is less than 1.0 millimeter (mm) of mercury, and New Hampshire 
DES indicates within the updated Order that use of this low vapor 
pressure fluid represents RACT for this process. Regarding this vapor 
pressure limit, as a point of reference the Ozone Transport 
Commission's model rule for solvent cleaning uses this threshold to 
distinguish between acceptable (less than 1.0 mm mercury), and 
unacceptable (1.0 mm mercury or higher) vapor pressures for cold 
cleaning solvents.
    The camouflage image transfer and coating process uses a solvent 
based activator-release agent to prepare the camouflage image for 
transfer to a gun. Use of the activator-release agent produces 
approximately 0.05 lbs VOC per gun produced. This amount was 
significantly lower than other coatings available for this process, 
which ranged from 0.09 to 0.20 lbs VOC per gun produced, and therefore 
New Hampshire DES determined that use of the activator-release agent 
represented RACT for this process. EPA is approving this revised order 
because it is consistent with CAA requirements for VOC RACT and with 
New Hampshire's VOC RACT regulation.

6. VOC RACT for Textile Tapes Corporation

    On November 16, 2012, New Hampshire DES submitted an amendment to a 
previously issued VOC RACT order for the Textile Tapes Corporation in 
Gonic, New Hampshire, as a SIP revision request. EPA had previously 
approved VOC RACT order ARD-96-001 for this facility into the New 
Hampshire SIP in a final rule published in the Federal Register on 
November 5, 2012. See 77 FR 66388. The updated order contains VOC 
destruction efficiency requirements, minimum operating temperature 
requirements, and testing requirements for a new recuperative thermal 
oxidizer that replaced an existing unit previously used at the 
facility. EPA is approving this revised order because it is consistent 
with CAA requirements for VOC RACT and with New Hampshire's VOC RACT 
regulation.

Summary

    We have reviewed New Hampshire's revised NOX RACT 
regulation, the four single-source RACT orders the State requested be 
approved into the SIP, and the NOX RACT order the State 
requested be withdrawn from the SIP. We agree with the State's 
rationale for determining that these actions are consistent with CAA 
requirements and with New Hampshire's RACT regulations, and we are 
therefore approving each of New Hampshire's requested SIP revisions.
    In summary, today's action approves minor clarifications and/or 
updates to New Hampshire's previously approved NOX RACT 
regulations and to certain VOC and NOX RACT orders. New 
Hampshire will need to address VOC and NOX RACT requirements 
arising from the 2008 ozone NAAQS in a future SIP submittal to EPA. As 
explained earlier in this notice, today's action approving Env-A 1300, 
NOX RACT, into

[[Page 49461]]

the New Hampshire SIP also corrects an inadvertent error, which we are 
correcting pursuant to CAA section 110(k)(6). As a final note, New 
Hampshire's re-numbered NOX RACT rule is no less stringent 
than its previously adopted rule, thus satisfying the anti-backsliding 
requirements of section 110(l) of the CAA.

III. Final Action

    EPA is approving and incorporating into the New Hampshire SIP Env-A 
1300, NOX RACT, as well as source-specific VOC and 
NOX RACT orders for the following four facilities: Concord 
Litho Group; Gorham Paper and Tissue, LLC; Sturm, Ruger & Company, 
Inc.; and Textile Tapes Corporation. We are also approving New 
Hampshire's request to withdraw from the New Hampshire SIP a previously 
approved NOX RACT order for Plymouth Cogeneration Limited 
Partnership.
    The EPA is publishing this action without prior proposal because 
the Agency views this as a noncontroversial amendment and anticipates 
no adverse comments. However, in the proposed rules section of this 
Federal Register publication, EPA is publishing a separate document 
that will serve as the proposal to approve the SIP revision should 
relevant adverse comments be filed. This rule will be effective October 
20, 2014 without further notice unless the Agency receives relevant 
adverse comments by September 22, 2014.
    If the EPA receives such comments, then EPA will publish a notice 
withdrawing the final rule and informing the public that the rule will 
not take effect. All public comments received will then be addressed in 
a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. The EPA will not 
institute a second comment period on the proposed rule. All parties 
interested in commenting on the proposed rule should do so at this 
time. If no such comments are received, the public is advised that this 
rule will be effective on October 20, 2014 and no further action will 
be taken on the proposed rule. 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.

IV. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the Clean Air Act, the Administrator is required to approve a 
SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the Act and 
applicable Federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). 
Thus, in reviewing SIP submissions, EPA's role is to approve state 
choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the Clean Air Act. 
Accordingly, this action merely approves state law as meeting Federal 
requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those 
imposed by state law. For that reason, this action:
     Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' subject to 
review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Order 
12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993);
     Does not impose an information collection burden under the 
provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.);
     Is certified as not having a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.);
     Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4);
     Does not have Federalism implications as specified in 
Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999);
     Is not an economically significant regulatory action based 
on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 
19885, April 23, 1997);
     Is not a significant regulatory action subject to 
Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001);
     Is not subject to requirements of Section 12(d) of the 
National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 
note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent 
with the Clean Air Act; and
     Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to 
address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental 
effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under 
Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).

In addition, this rule does not have tribal implications as specified 
by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because the 
SIP is not approved to apply in Indian country located in the state, 
and EPA notes that it will not impose substantial direct costs on 
tribal governments or preempt tribal law.
    The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the 
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally 
provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating 
the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, 
to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the 
United States. EPA will submit a report containing this action and 
other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of 
Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior 
to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot 
take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal 
Register. This action is not a ``major rule'' as defined by 5 U.S.C. 
804(2).
    Under section 307(b)(1) of the Clean Air Act, petitions for 
judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court 
of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by October 20, 2014. Filing a 
petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule 
does not affect the finality of this action for the purposes of 
judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for 
judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness 
of such rule or action. Parties with objections to this direct final 
rule are encouraged to file a comment in response to the parallel 
notice of proposed rulemaking for this action published in the proposed 
rules section of today's Federal Register, rather than file an 
immediate petition for judicial review of this direct final rule, so 
that EPA can withdraw this direct final rule and address the comment in 
the proposed rulemaking. This action may not be challenged later in 
proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2).)
