National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Wool 
Fiberglass Manufacturing; Flame Attenuation Lines

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Withdrawal of direct final rule.

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

SUMMARY: Because the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) received 
adverse comment, we are withdrawing the direct final rule for the 
National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Wool 
Fiberglass Manufacturing; Flame Attenuation Lines, published on July 
27, 2017.

DATES: Effective October 24, 2017, the EPA withdraws the direct final 
rule published at 82 FR 34858, on July 27, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions about this action, 
contact Mr. Brian Storey, Sector Policies and Programs Division (D243-

Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina 27711; 
telephone number: (919) 541-1103; fax number: (919) 541-4991; and email

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 27, 2017, the EPA published a direct 
final rule (82 FR 34858) and parallel proposal (82 FR 34910) to amend 
the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Wool 
Fiberglass Manufacturing to provide affected sources a 1-year extension 
to comply with the emission limits for flame attenuation lines. We 
stated in that direct final rule that if we received adverse comment by 
August 28, 2017, the direct final rule would not take effect and we 
would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. We 
subsequently received adverse comment on that direct final rule and are 
withdrawing it. We will address those comments in any subsequent final 
action, which will be based on the parallel proposed rule also 
published on July 27, 2017. As stated in the direct final rule and 
parallel proposed rule, we will not institute a second comment period 
on this action.

    Dated: October 18, 2017.
E. Scott Pruitt,
Administrator.

Accordingly, the amendments to the rule published on July 27, 2017 (82 
FR 34858), are withdrawn as of October 24, 2017.
