I. Background and Purpose

    In 1997, EPA revised the health-based national ambient air quality 
standard (NAAQS) for ozone, setting it at 0.08 parts per million (ppm) 
averaged over an 8-hour time frame. EPA set the 8-hour ozone standard 
based on scientific evidence demonstrating that ozone causes adverse 
health effects at lower ozone concentrations and over longer periods of 
time than was understood when the pre-existing one-hour ozone standard 
was set. EPA determined that the 8-hour standard would be more 
protective of human health, especially with regard to children and 
adults who are active outdoors, and individuals with a pre-existing 
respiratory disease such as asthma.
    On April 30, 2004 (69 FR 23951), EPA designated portions of New 
Hampshire located in the southern part of the state as nonattainment 
for the 1997 8-hour ozone standard. These areas were classified as 
moderate, and are located within portions of Hillsborough, Merrimack, 
Rockingham, and Strafford counties. See 40 CFR 81.330. The use of 
reasonably available control technology (RACT) by certain stationary 
sources is specified by sections 172(c)(1) and 182(b)(2) of the Clean 
Air Act (CAA, or ``the Act'') in nonattainment areas classified as 
moderate or higher. Additionally, section 184(b)(1)(B) of the Act 
requires RACT controls in states located in the ozone transport region 
(OTR). Although most of central and northern New Hampshire were not 
designated nonattainment for the 1997 8-hour ozone standard, all parts 
of the state are within the OTR and therefore all parts of New 
Hampshire are required to implement RACT.
    Specifically, these areas are required to implement RACT on all 
sources covered by a Control Techniques Guideline (CTG) document and on 
all major sources of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrogen 
oxide (NOX) emissions. A CTG is a document issued by EPA 
which establishes a ``presumptive norm'' for RACT for a specific VOC 
source category. A similar set of documents exists for NOX 
control requirements; these are referred to as Alternative Control 
Techniques (ACT) documents. States are required to submit rules or 
negative declarations for CTG source categories, but not for sources in 
ACT categories although RACT must be imposed on major sources of 
NOX, and some of those major sources may be within a sector 
covered by an ACT document.
    On November 29, 2005, EPA published a final rule in the Federal 
Register that outlined requirements for areas found to be in 
nonattainment of the 1997 8-hour ozone standard (see 70 FR 71612). This 
rule, referred to as the ``Phase 2 Implementation rule,'' contains a 
description of what EPA's expectations are for states with RACT 
obligations. The Phase 2 Implementation rule indicated that states 
could meet RACT either through a certification that previously adopted 
RACT controls in its SIP-approved by EPA under the one-hour ozone NAAQS 
represent adequate RACT control levels for 8-hour attainment planning 
purposes, or through the establishment of new or more stringent 
requirements that represent RACT control levels.
    On January 28, 2008, the State of New Hampshire submitted a formal 
revision to its State Implementation Plan (SIP). The SIP revision 
consisted of information documenting how the State complied with RACT 
requirements for the 1997 8-hour ozone standard.\1\ Several of the 
source-specific RACT orders relied on in New Hampshire's January 28, 
2008 submittal have been updated since that time as noted in section 
III of this action.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ New Hampshire's submittal is for the 1997 8-hour ozone 
standard and does not address the 0.075 ppm 2008 ozone standard.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On October 5, 2006, EPA issued four new CTGs which states were 
required to address by October 5, 2007 (71 FR 58745). Also, on October 
9, 2007, EPA issued three more CTGs which states were required to 
address by October 9, 2008 (72 FR 57215). Furthermore, on October 7, 
2008, EPA issued four additional CTGs which states were required to 
address by October 7, 2009 (73 FR 58841). New Hampshire's January 28, 
2008 SIP revision and today's action do not address the state's 
obligations with regard to EPA's 2006, 2007, and 2008 CTGs. EPA intends 
to address those CTG obligations in a separate action in the near 
future.

II. Summary of New Hampshire's SIP Revisions

    On January 28, 2008, New Hampshire submitted a demonstration that 
its regulatory framework for stationary sources met the criteria for 
RACT as defined in EPA's Phase 2 Implementation rule. The state held a 
public hearing on its RACT certification finding on October 20, 2006. 
New Hampshire's RACT submittal notes that the State's former status as 
a nonattainment area for the one-hour ozone standard resulted in the 
adoption of stringent controls for sources of VOC and NOX 
including RACT level controls. Therefore, much of New Hampshire's 
submittal consists of a review of RACT controls adopted under the one 
hour ozone standard and an evaluation of whether those previously 
adopted controls still represent RACT.
    The state's submittal identifies the specific control measures that 
have been previously adopted to control emissions from sources of VOC 
and NOX emissions, and also describes updates made to 
existing rules to strengthen them so that they will continue to 
represent RACT. Additionally, section 3.3 of New Hampshire's RACT 
submittal identifies the CTG categories for which facilities do not 
exist within the state, and makes a negative declaration for these 
categories. The CTG categories for which New Hampshire makes a negative 
declaration are as follows:

1. Aerospace coatings
2. Organic waste process vents
3. Polystyrene foam manufacturing
4. Industrial wastewater

[[Page 66390]]

5. Refinery vacuum producing systems, wastewater separators, and 
process unit turnarounds
6. Surface coating of large appliances
7. Factory surface coating of flat wood paneling
8. VOC leaks from petroleum refinery equipment
9. Manufacture of synthesized pharmaceutical products
10. Manufacture of pneumatic rubber tires
11. Large petroleum dry cleaners
12. Manufacture of high density polyethylene, polypropylene, and 
polystyrene resins
13. VOC equipment leaks from natural gas/gasoline processing plants
14. VOC fugitive emissions from synthetic organic chemical polymer and 
resin equipment
15. VOC emissions from air oxidation processes in synthetic organic 
chemical mfg. industry
16. Synthetic organic chemical mfg. industry distillation and reactor 
processes
17. Shipbuilding and ship repair operations

    Regarding items 6 and 7 above, we note that New Hampshire's 
negative declarations for these sectors is with regard to the CTG's 
issued in 1977 for large appliances (EPA-450/2-77-034, 1977/12) and in 
1978 for flat wood paneling (EPA-450/2-78-032, 1978/06). EPA updated 
the flat wood paneling CTG in 2006, and the large appliance surface 
coating CTG in 2007, and New Hampshire subsequently addressed these 
updated CTGs. However, in this rulemaking we are only acting on New 
Hampshire's negative declarations for the 1977 and 1978 versions of 
these CTGs.
    Appendix A of New Hampshire's submittal contains a summary of 
information for each of EPA's CTG categories, and identifies the 
specific state rule, where relevant, that is in place, the effective 
date for each rule, and the date that EPA approved the rule into the 
New Hampshire SIP. Appendix B identifies the major VOC and 
NOX sources in the state that are not covered by an ACT or 
CTG document, but are subject to RACT via source-specific RACT orders 
issued by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NH-
DES). The state has issued source-specific orders containing control 
requirements for these facilities. The table within Appendix B 
identifies the effective date for each RACT order, and an indication of 
whether or not EPA had approved the order into the New Hampshire SIP. 
Table 1 below contains a list of the single source RACT orders that New 
Hampshire has adopted and submitted to EPA, but that we had not yet 
acted on as of the date of the state's RACT certification submittal. We 
note that the table within Appendix B of New Hampshire's submittal did 
not include an effective date for the order for Newington Energy LLC, 
as that order had not yet been issued when the state held the public 
hearing on its RACT certification in 2006. That order was subsequently 
issued by NH-DES with an effective date of June 20, 2007.

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

    We provide a brief summary of each of the orders in Table 1, and 
identify the action we are taking on them in Section III.B of this 
direct final rule.
    New Hampshire's certification notes that the RACT requirements 
apply to sources that have the potential to emit 50 tons per year or 
more of NOX, and to sources with potential VOC emissions of 
between 10 and 50 tons per year or greater depending on the source 
category. Figures one and two of the state's submittal document the 
significant reduction in emissions that has occurred at sources subject 
to RACT in the state. NOX and VOC emissions have fallen 77 
percent and 59 percent, respectively, from stationary point sources 
since the RACT requirements contained within the CAA amendments of 1990 
were promulgated.
    New Hampshire's submittal notes that for the years 2003 through 
2005 the state did not record any violations of the 1997 ozone 
standard, and the state's submittal concludes that tighter 
NOX and VOC controls are therefore not necessary to bring 
the area into attainment.
    On March 12, 2003, New Hampshire submitted revised versions of Env-
A 800, Testing and Monitoring Procedures, Env-A 1204, VOC RACT, and 
Env-A 1211, NOX RACT, to EPA and requested that these 
revised rules be incorporated into the New Hampshire SIP. Additional 
modifications to each of these rules were submitted to EPA as a SIP 
revision request on July 9, 2007.
    On November 14, 2003, New Hampshire submitted a revised version of 
Env-A 900, Recordkeeping and Reporting Obligations, to EPA as a SIP 
revision request. More recently, on July 6, 2012, New Hampshire 
submitted an updated, revised version of Env-A 900 to EPA as a SIP 
revision request. On September 26, 2012, New Hampshire withdrew its 
November 2003 submission since its July 2012 submission of a revised 
version of Env-A 900 entirely superseded the earlier version of Env-A 
900 included in its November 2003 submission.

III. Evaluation of New Hampshire's SIP Submittals

A. Evaluation of RACT Certification

    EPA has evaluated the VOC and NOX stationary source 
control regulations that New Hampshire cites as meeting RACT for the 
1997 8-hour standard and agrees that the state's regulations are 
satisfactorily meeting EPA's RACT requirements for purposes of the 1997 
8-hour ozone standard. EPA previously approved these NOX and 
VOC RACT requirements into the New Hampshire SIP (See 62 FR 17087, 
April 9, 1997 for NOX; See 63 FR 11600, March 10, 1998 and 
67 FR 48033, July 23, 2002 for VOC), and in today's direct final 
rulemaking we are approving updates to several of these rules, and also 
approving single source RACT determinations for fifteen major sources 
of VOC and NOX in the state.
    We are determining that these regulatory elements and the resulting 
reduction in VOC and NOX emissions from sources demonstrate 
that a RACT level of control has been implemented in the state. 
Additionally, we are approving the negative declarations New Hampshire 
submitted for the source categories identified in Section II of this 
document.
    EPA published a clean data determination for New Hampshire's only 
8-hour ozone nonattainment area in the Federal Register that documents 
that air quality monitoring data in the state currently meets EPA's 
1997 ozone standard. The determination for the Boston-Manchester-
Portsmouth moderate area was published on March 18, 2011 (76 FR 14805). 
The improvements in air quality represented by this clean data 
determination were brought about, in part, by the RACT program 
implemented by New Hampshire. Additional information about the 
revisions to New Hampshire's rules and the single source RACT orders we 
are approving today is contained below in section III.B and III.C.

B. Evaluation of Revised New Hampshire Rules

1. Revisions to VOC Rules and Single Source VOC RACT Orders
    On March 12, 2003, New Hampshire submitted a revised version of its 
VOC RACT regulation, Env-A 1204, to EPA as a SIP revision request. The 
revised version of the VOC RACT rules removed provisions relating to 
petroleum refineries, as there are no such facilities in the state. 
Additionally, the state removed a section regarding an equivalent 
substitute control technique because a similar provision that requires 
submittal to EPA exists and was retained in the rule. Several minor 
updates to references and correction of errors were also made within 
the March 12, 2003 submittal.
    On July 9, 2007, New Hampshire submitted additional updates to its 
VOC RACT regulations to EPA as a SIP revision request. The July 9, 2007 
submittal consisted primarily of updates to the state's existing 
requirements for solvent metal cleaning that were made to match 
requirements recommended within a model rule adopted by the Ozone 
Transport Commission (OTC). The primary changes made to the rule 
consisted of adoption of expanded applicability of the state's existing 
rule to include anyone who sells VOC containing solvent for use in a 
cold cleaning machine, and a prohibition was added preventing certain 
items from being cleaned in a cold cleaning machine. In keeping with 
the model rule adopted by the OTC, New Hampshire's rule prohibits the 
use of solvents with a vapor pressure greater than 1.0 millimeter of 
mercury in cold cleaning operations. The addition of a vapor pressure 
limit makes the revised rule more stringent than the previous version 
of the rule approved by EPA into the New Hampshire SIP in 2002 (67 FR 
48033), thus satisfying the anti-backsliding requirements of section 
110(l) of the CAA. A number of minor updates and renumbering changes 
were also included in the July 9, 2007 submittal. We are approving New 
Hampshire's updated VOC RACT regulations as submitted to EPA on March 
12, 2003, and modified on July 9, 2007.
    As previously mentioned, on March 10, 1998 (63 FR 11600), EPA 
approved New Hampshire's VOC RACT requirements that the state had 
adopted in 1995 as part of its emission control strategy for the one-
hour ozone standard. However, our March 10, 1998 action provided only a 
limited approval of Env-A 1204.27, the state's rule for major sources 
that are not covered by one of EPA's CTG documents. A final, full 
approval of Env-A 1204.27 was issued on July 23, 2002 (67 FR 48033), 
although that approval was limited to portions of the state located in 
the New Hampshire portion of the eastern Massachusetts serious one-hour 
ozone nonattainment area. Approval of Env-A-1204.27 in the remainder of 
the state was not granted at that time because New Hampshire had not 
issued single source RACT orders for all major sources of VOC and 
NOX in the remainder of the state.
    New Hampshire has now adopted RACT for all major sources, and we 
are approving those orders and providing a full statewide approval of 
New Hampshire's requirements for miscellaneous and multi-category 
sources within this direct final rule.
    A brief description of the single source VOC RACT orders that we 
are approving in today's action is provided below. A number of these 
orders contain provisions for complying with RACT via purchase of, or 
generation of, emission reduction credits. New Hampshire has an adopted 
emissions credit trading rule, Env-A 3100, Discrete Emission Reduction 
Trading Program. However, EPA has not approved Env-A 3100 into the New 
Hampshire SIP. Therefore, we have evaluated the generation and use of 
DERs in each of these cases and believe that they represent a 
legitimate option for sources to comply with RACT. We are therefore 
approving their use as outlined in the individual orders being approved 
in this action. Additionally, any purchased credits used for RACT 
compliance must come from a source whose order is also federally 
approved.
Concord Litho Group
    The Concord Litho Group operates a facility in Concord, New 
Hampshire where it uses an offset lithographic printing operation to 
produce greeting cards, brochures, magazines, and direct mail inserts. 
The company operates two regenerative thermal oxidizers to control VOC 
emissions from five of the seven printing presses at the facility. On 
September 17, 2007, NH-DES issued VOC RACT order ARD 07-003 to the 
company. The order requires that the VOC emissions from the dryer 
exhaust of the heat-set web offset lithographic presses either be 
reduced by 90% or have a total organics level of 20 parts per million 
or less. The company will meet these requirements by controlling VOC 
emissions with their two recuperative thermal oxidizers. The order 
allows the facility to comply by purchasing DERs during times that 
maintenance is being performed, or when an oxidizer malfunctions.
Hitchiner Manufacturing
    The Hitchiner Manufacturing Company operates a casting foundry and 
ceramics molding operation in Milford, New Hampshire. In 2002, the 
facility ceased operation of a VOC emitting operation referred to as 
the Plant 2 ceramics molding process and was granted 29 tons in VOC 
emission reduction credits (ERCs) by NH-DES for this shutdown. NH-DES 
issued VOC RACT order ARD-02-001 to the facility on June 21, 2002. The 
order requires that the facility reduce its VOC

[[Page 66392]]

emissions by 81%, and caps annual VOC emissions at less than 50 tons 
per year. The facility will meet these obligations primarily by use of 
the ERCs generated by the shutdown of the Plant 2 ceramics molding 
process.
Hutchinson Sealing Systems, Inc.
    Hutchinson Sealing Systems located in Newfields, New Hampshire, 
operates a facility that produces sealing systems, body seals, and 
rubber glass-run channels used in the automotive and other industries. 
On August 8, 2002, NH-DES issued VOC RACT order ARD-01-002 to the 
facility, and submitted it as a revision to the state's SIP on this 
same day. On March 23, 2012, NH-DES submitted an updated VOC RACT order 
identified as ARD-11-001 that replaced the prior order issued to the 
facility in 2002. The updated order indicates that the company will 
install and operate a catalytic oxidizer to control VOC emissions from 
some of the process lines at the facility. The updated order contains 
VOC content limits for motor vehicle weather-strip adhesive coatings, 
and an allowance for compliance to be met by using either DERs or ERCs. 
The company must also continue to research and test water based and/or 
high solids coatings as new products become available.
Kalwall Corporation
    The Kalwall Corporation located in Manchester, New Hampshire, 
manufactures energy efficient window like structural components out of 
specially formulated, fiberglass reinforced material. The NH-DES 
developed VOC RACT order ARD-95-010 for the facility and submitted it 
to EPA on September 10, 1996, and we approved that order into the New 
Hampshire SIP in our March 10, 1998 final rulemaking mentioned 
elsewhere in this document. On June 25, 1999, NH-DES submitted an 
updated VOC RACT order for Kalwall numbered ARD-99-001 to replace the 
previously issued order, and requested the order be approved into the 
New Hampshire SIP. A minor update to this order was submitted to EPA on 
November 20, 2001, and we are approving that version of ARD-99-001 via 
this final rulemaking. The major aspects of the updated order establish 
VOC content limits for bonding agents used on IBSS process lines 1 and 
2, for coatings used in the KWS process, for clear or transparent 
topcoats used in the KCRF process, and for pretreatment primers applied 
in the KCRF process. VOC RACT order ARD-99-001 also allows the company 
to comply by purchasing DERs as provided for by Env-A 3100 of New 
Hampshire's air regulations.
Mectrol Corporation
    On June 16, 2003, NH-DES issued VOC RACT order ARD-03-002 to the 
Mectrol Corporation located in Salem, New Hampshire and submitted it to 
EPA as a SIP revision request. However, by letter dated July 2, 2009, 
NH-DES subsequently withdrew this request because the coating units 
that had been the subject of the order had been removed from the 
facility. Therefore, we are taking no action with regard to New 
Hampshire's June 16, 2003 SIP submittal request.
Metal Works, Inc
    Metal Works, Inc., operates a facility in Londonderry, New 
Hampshire, where it is primarily engaged in the fabrication of sheet 
metal. The facility operates 5 spray booths, and these booths are the 
primary source of VOC emissions at the facility. On December 22, 2004, 
NH-DES issued VOC RACT order ARD-05-001. The order contains the 
following VOC content limits: for clear and transparent top coats 4.3 
lbs VOC per gallon of coating, as applied, excluding water and exempt 
coatings; for coatings used in extreme environmental conditions, and 
for air dried coatings, 3.5 lbs VOC per gallon of coating; and for all 
other coatings, 3.0 lbs VOC per gallon of coating. The order also 
allows the company to comply with VOC RACT by using DERs.
Parker-Hanifan Corporation, Chomerics Division
    The Chomerics Division of the Parker Hanifan Corporation located in 
Hudson, New Hampshire, produces coated fabrics, films, and other 
substrates for use in the electronics industry. NH-DES issued VOC RACT 
order ARD-03-001 to the company on July 18, 2002. The facility operates 
four continuous web coaters, and the VOC emissions from each are 
captured within a permanent total enclosure that meets the requirements 
of EPA Method 204. Exhaust from dryers on each line is fed to a 
catalytic oxidizer that is required to achieve a minimum destruction 
and removal efficiency for VOCs of 93%. The order contains monitoring 
and recordkeeping requirements for the catalytic oxidizer. The order 
also allows the company to comply by generating and using emission 
credits for compliance, and to comply via the purchase of DERs.
Polyonics
    The Polyonics facility located in Westmoreland, New Hampshire, 
manufactures pressure sensitive tagging and labeling materials. The 
company operates a catalytic oxidizer to control VOC emissions from its 
two web gravure coaters. On December 28, 2007, NH-DES issued VOC RACT 
order ARD 07-004 to the company. The order requires that the company 
comply with a VOC content limit of 2.9 lbs VOC per gallon for its 
paper, fabric, film and foil coating operations. Alternatively, the 
company is allowed to comply by using the catalytic oxidizer, by 
averaging coating limits such that the weighted average complies with 
the 2.9 lbs VOC per gallon coating limit, or by using DERs.
Sturm, Ruger & Company
    Sturm, Ruger & Company located in Newport, New Hampshire, produces 
a variety of steel investment castings in the manufacture of firearms. 
NH-DES issued VOC RACT order ARD-03-001 to the facility on October 13, 
2003, and re-issued it in amended form shortly thereafter on December 
1, 2003. The order contains VOC limits for coatings used in the 
facility's woodworking spray booths and paint mixing rooms, and also 
contains a number of work practice and housekeeping standards to 
minimize emissions. The order also contains a 10 gallon daily maximum 
use amount for touch-up and repair finishing materials, compliance 
standards for cold cleaning operations at the facility, and a 1.0 lb 
VOC per gallon limit for metal parts coating operations other than 
rust-proofing. The VOC emission rate from the company's rust-proofing 
operation is limited to 3.5 lbs VOC per gallon of coating, excluding 
water and exempt compounds. The company is also required to achieve an 
81% reduction in VOC emissions from its flash de-wax process.
Textile Tapes Corporation
    The Textile Tapes Corporation located in Gonic, New Hampshire, 
operates two coating lines that coat woven and non-woven materials with 
adhesive in the production of tapes and coated products. The NH-DES 
issued an initial VOC RACT order to the facility on December 9, 1996, 
and EPA approved that order into the New Hampshire SIP on March 10, 
1998 (63 FR 11600). On August 31, 2007, NH-DES submitted an amended VOC 
RACT order to EPA as a SIP revision request. Since the initial order 
was issued in 1996, a number of revisions have been made to the order, 
as follows. In 1998, the company requested and was granted permission 
to use a generic release coating that had not been addressed in the 
order issued in 1996. In 1999, the company requested

[[Page 66393]]

permission to install a recuperative thermal oxidizer and to replace 
the dryer on coating line 1B. NH-DES granted permission for these 
modifications and issued an amended order to Textile Tapes on April 19, 
2002, and submitted the amended order to EPA as a SIP revision request.
    In 2006, Textile Tapes requested permission to use a coating that 
exceeds the 2.9 lb/gal emission limit required by Env-A 1204.10(c) of 
New Hampshire's air pollution control regulations. NH-DES required the 
company to purchase DER credits as provided for within Env-A 3100 of 
New Hampshire's air pollution control regulations. The facility 
complied by purchasing 4 DER credits from the Public Service Company of 
New Hampshire on October 3, 2006. New Hampshire issued amended order 
ARD-96-001 to Textile Tapes with an effective date of August 10, 2007. 
The amended order allows the company to self-generate DER credits 
needed to compensate for their non-compliant coating via the over-
control achieved by the recuperative thermal oxidizer. New Hampshire 
submitted the amended order to EPA as a SIP revision request on August 
31, 2007, and we are approving the amended order into the New Hampshire 
SIP in this direct final rulemaking.
TFX Medical Incorporated
    TFX Medical Incorporated operates a facility in Jaffrey, New 
Hampshire, where it manufactures tubing for automotive and medical 
applications and devices. The manufacturing process involves extruding 
a mixture of polytetrafluoroethylene resin with a hydrocarbon solvent 
and then curing the tubing in ovens. The facility operates a 
recuperative thermal oxidizer to control VOC emissions from the 
extruder lines and curing ovens. On August 7, 2007, NH-DES issued VOC 
RACT order ARD 07-002 to the company. The order requires the company to 
reduce VOC emissions by a minimum of 81%, and the company achieves this 
obligation primarily by use of the thermal oxidizer. During times that 
the thermal oxidizer is not able to meet this control requirement, the 
order allows the company to comply by using DERs.
Webster Valve, Incorporated
    Webster Valve, Incorporated operates a facility in Franklin, New 
Hampshire, that is engaged in the manufacture of valves, regulators, 
and backflow prevention devices for plumbing, heating, and water 
quality applications. There are 6 spray booths at the facility where 
various coatings are applied to the product. On March 21, 2007, NH-DES 
issued VOC RACT order ARD 07-001 to the company. The order contains the 
following VOC content limits: for clear and transparent top coats 4.3 
lbs VOC per gallon of coating, as applied, excluding water and exempt 
coatings; for coatings used in extreme environmental conditions, and 
for air dried coatings, 3.5 lbs VOC per gallon of coating; and for all 
other coatings, 3.0 lbs VOC per gallon of coating. The order also 
allows the company to comply with VOC RACT by using DERs.
    EPA agrees with New Hampshire's RACT determinations for the eleven 
sources listed above, and therefore we are approving the single source 
VOC RACT orders for these sources, with the exception of the order for 
the Mectrol Corporation, as NH-DES requested withdrawal of the SIP 
revision for that facility. In instances where New Hampshire has 
required air pollution capture and control equipment, a minimum 81% 
reduction has been required to be achieved. The VOC RACT orders contain 
acceptable levels of monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting provisions 
to enable the state to effectively track compliance at these 
facilities. Additionally, we are also fully approving Env-A 1204.27, 
New Hampshire's requirements for miscellaneous and multi-category 
sources, for all parts of the state.
2. Revision to NOX Rules and Single Source NOX 
RACT Orders
    On March 12, 2003, New Hampshire submitted a revised version of its 
NOX RACT regulation, Env-A 1211, to EPA as a SIP revision 
request. As compared to the previous, SIP-approved version of the rule, 
the version submitted in 2003 contained lower NOX limits for 
gas-fired combustion turbines, and revisions applicable to emergency 
generators. The main update made to the rule consisted of a change made 
to the NOX RACT requirements for gas-fired turbines 
constructed after May 27, 1999. A change was made to account for 
certifications that facilities were obtaining from manufacturers that 
these units emitted NOX at levels less than New Hampshire's 
NOX RACT limits. New Hampshire, therefore, made its emission 
limits for these units more restrictive. The new NOX 
emissions limits for these units are found at Env-A 1211.06(d), and 
limit average hourly NOX emissions to 25 parts per million, 
corrected to 15% oxygen, or alternatively, 0.092 pounds per million 
British thermal unit (BTU). Since the revised rule's NOX 
limits for gas-fired turbines constructed after May 25, 1999 are more 
stringent than the previous SIP-approved version, the anti-backsliding 
requirements of section 110(l) of the CAA are satisfied.
    Regarding the emergency generator related revisions, the state 
noted that after the initial provisions for emergency generators were 
adopted in 1994, NH-DES received numerous complaints that an aspect of 
the rule regarding ignition timing was causing many facilities to 
encounter difficulty ensuring that a continuous supply of electricity 
could be provided by the generator. New Hampshire prepared an analysis 
of the emissions impact that removal of this provision would cause and 
determined that the impact would be minimal, and so a change was made 
to the emergency generator regulation providing relief from this 
provision.
    On July 9, 2007, New Hampshire submitted additional revisions to 
Env-A 1211 as a SIP revision request. The revisions included a change 
to the testing requirements for auxiliary boilers with a heat input of 
between 5 million and 50 million BTUs, removed a provision that had 
allowed such boilers to meet a less stringent NOX emission 
limit once emissions exceeded 50 tons per year, and removed a 
requirement that continuous emission monitors (CEMs) be used on small 
boilers.
    In today's action, we are approving the updated version of Env-A 
1211 that New Hampshire submitted on March 12, 2003, and updated on 
July 9, 2007, into the New Hampshire SIP. It should be noted that 
additional NOX requirements within Env-A 1211 were 
subsequently submitted by NH-DES and approved by EPA as part of New 
Hampshire's Regional Haze SIP (77 FR 50602, August 22, 2012).
    Additionally, we are approving NOX RACT orders for four 
facilities. A brief description of each order is provided below.
Anheuser Busch
    Anheuser Busch operates a brewery in Merrimack, New Hampshire. The 
significant NOX emitting devices at the facility consist of 
three oil and natural gas-fired boilers, and also an open flare. On May 
9, 2005, NH-DES issued NOX order ARD-05-001 to the company. 
The order requires that the company comply with a NOX limit 
of 0.068 lbs NOX per million BTUs for the open flare. 
Regarding the boilers, the order requires an emission rate of 0.25 lbs 
NOX per million BTU on a 24-hour average when burning 
natural gas or a combination of natural gas and biogas. An emission 
rate of 0.40 lbs NOX per million BTU on a 24-hour average 
must be met when oil or a combination of oil and biogas is

[[Page 66394]]

being used. Additionally, the order requires testing of a bio energy 
recovery system the facility intends to install at the facility.
Newington Energy, LLC
    Newington Energy operates a 525 megawatt combined cycle electric 
generation facility in Newington, New Hampshire. Other equipment at the 
facility includes a natural gas-fired auxiliary boiler, eight natural 
gas-fired fuel gas heaters, one diesel fired emergency generator, and 
one diesel fired firewater pump. On June 20, 2007, NH-DES issued 
NOX RACT order ARD-04-001 to the company. The order requires 
the company to install and operate low NOX burners on six 
fuel gas heaters, and to also comply with a NOX emission 
concentration of 9.9 ppm and an emission rate of 0.012 lbs 
NOX per million BTU for these gas heaters.
PSNH, Schiller Station
    The Public Service Company of New Hampshire's (PSNH) Schiller 
Station is a 153 megawatt fossil fuel fired electric generating station 
located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Electric power is produced at the 
facility by three utility boilers, one combustion turbine that operates 
as a load shaving unit, and one emergency generator. On August 4, 2006, 
NH-DES issued NOX RACT order ARD-06-001 to the company. The 
order requires that the boiler equipped with a circulating fluidized 
bed install and operate a selective non-catalytic reducing (SNCR) 
control device to meet an emission limit of 0.975 lbs NOX 
per million BTU. Additionally, the order requires that the facility 
continue to comply with conditions D.1.c and D.1.d of NOX 
RACT order ARD-98-001 pertaining to a non-ozone season NOX 
cap of 8,208 tons and an ozone season NOX cap of 3,727 tons 
for the combined emissions from units identified as MK1, MK2, NT1, SR4, 
SR5, and SR6.
Waste Management
    Waste Management operates a facility in Rochester, New Hampshire 
that consists of two, closed municipal solid waste landfills, one 
active municipal solid waste landfill, a materials recovery facility, a 
leachate treatment plant, and two landfill gas to energy plants. On 
August 26, 2002, NH-DES issued NOX RACT order ARD 01-001. 
New Hampshire submitted an updated order to EPA as a SIP revision 
request on August 2, 2012. We are approving the updated order in 
today's action. The order provides performance standards for the three 
flares at the facility, and also provides testing, recordkeeping and 
reporting requirements for the facility to follow.
    EPA agrees that the NOX provisions in the orders for the 
four facilities outlined above constitute RACT for these facilities.
3. Revisions to Testing and Monitoring Procedures
    On March 15, 1983, EPA approved New Hampshire's Env-A 800, testing 
and monitoring requirements for air pollution sources into the New 
Hampshire SIP. Additional updates to these requirements were 
subsequently incorporated in the New Hampshire SIP as noted within 40 
CFR 52.1525.
    On March 12, 2003, New Hampshire submitted revisions to Env-A 800 
to EPA as a SIP revision request. The revisions include simplifications 
to some procedures and delineates what methods should be used when 
monitoring emissions and checking the accuracy of CEM systems. 
Additionally, the amended rule contains a requirement that a relative 
accuracy test audit (RATA) be performed annually on each CEM system. If 
the system does not pass the RATA, the new rule requires that another 
full audit be conducted, whereas the prior version of the rule only 
required a partial audit be done in such circumstances. The state 
submitted additional revisions to Env-A 800 to EPA as a SIP revision 
request on July 9, 2007. The July 9, 2007 submittal contained revisions 
to Env-A 803.03 and Env-A 803.04, primarily with regard to requirements 
for small boilers and emergency generators. We are approving New 
Hampshire's revised version of Env-A 800 as submitted on March 12, 2003 
and revised on July 9, 2007, with the exception of Env-A 807 pertaining 
to requirements regarding testing and monitoring for opacity. We are 
taking no action with regard to Env-A 807.
4. Revisions to Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements
    On March 15, 1983, EPA approved Env-A 900, recordkeeping and 
reporting requirements for air pollution sources, into the New 
Hampshire SIP. Additional updates to these requirements were 
subsequently incorporated in the New Hampshire SIP as noted within 40 
CFR 52.1525.
    On November 14, 2003, New Hampshire submitted an updated version of 
Env-A 900, Owner or Operator Recordkeeping and Reporting Obligations, 
to EPA as a SIP revision request. New Hampshire's submittal was 
prompted by their re-adoption of the rule with amendments. The 
amendments included clarifying language, a re-alignment of the 
reporting date for the annual emission statement requirement, a repeal 
of a provision requiring reporting of malfunctions and replacement of 
that provision with a recordkeeping and reporting requirement for 
permit deviations, and a re-organization of the previously adopted 
rule.
    On July 6, 2012, New Hampshire submitted an updated version of Env-
A 900, Owner or Operator Recordkeeping and Reporting Obligations, to 
EPA as a SIP revision request. The revised version of Env-A 900 
completely supersedes the older version of Env-A 900 that New Hampshire 
had submitted in 2003.\2\ The revisions included clarification to a 
number of recordkeeping provisions, and also amended the requirements 
for fuel-users regarding fuel sulfur content records. Additionally, the 
general reporting requirements for Title V sources that previously had 
been stated in each permit were added to Env-A 900. New Hampshire 
requested that all portions of the revised Env-A 900 be incorporated 
into its SIP with the exception of certain provisions that are required 
by 40 CFR Part 70 for Title V sources.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ On September 26, 2012, New Hampshire withdrew its November 
2003 submission.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At this time, we are not taking action on Env-A 912 (Alternative 
Time Periods), nor on the provisions required relating to Title V 
sources that New Hampshire requested not be incorporated into its SIP.
    In today's action, we are approving New Hampshire's July 6, 2012 
revised version of Env-A 900, with the exceptions of (1) the provisions 
relating to 40 CFR Part 70 contained within Env-A 907 and Env-A 911, 
and (2) the provisions of Env-A 912 (Alternative Time Periods).

IV. Final Action

    EPA is approving SIP revisions submitted by the State of New 
Hampshire. EPA is approving New Hampshire's January 28, 2008 RACT 
certification and negative declarations as meeting RACT for the 1997 8-
hour standard. Additionally, we are approving the following portions of 
New Hampshire's air pollution control requirements: Env-A 800, Testing 
and Monitoring Procedures, with the exception of Env-A 807, Testing for 
Opacity of Emissions; Env-A 900, Owner or Operator Recordkeeping and 
Reporting Obligations, with the exceptions of certain provisions within 
Env-A 907 and Env-A 911, and the entirety of Env-A 912; Env-A 1200, 
Volatile Organic Compound RACT; and,

[[Page 66395]]

Env-A 1211, Nitrogen Oxide RACT. Additionally, we are approving 
individual VOC RACT orders for the Concord Litho Group, Hitchiner 
Manufacturing, Hutchinson Sealing Systems, Kalwall Corporation, Metal 
Works Incorporated, Parker Hannifin Corporation, Polyonics, Sturm Ruger 
& Company, Textile Tapes Corporation, TFX Medical, and Webster Valve 
Incorporated. NOX RACT orders are being approved for 
Anheuser Busch, Newington Energy, PSNH-Schiller Station, and Waste 
Management of New Hampshire.
    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 January 
4, 2013 without further notice unless the Agency receives relevant 
adverse comments by December 5, 2012.
    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 January 4, 2013 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.

V. 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 January 4, 2013. 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).)
