ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 62

[EPA-R08-OAR-2016-0197; FRL-9953-11-Region 8]


Approval and Promulgation of State Air Quality Plans for 
Designated Facilities and Pollutants; State of Wyoming; Control of 
Emissions From Existing Hospital/Medical/Infectious Waste Incinerator 
Units, Plan Revision

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposes to approve 
a revision to the Wyoming hospital/medical/infectious waste incinerator 
(HMIWI) Section 111(d)/129 plan (the ``plan''). The revision contains a 
modified state rule for solid waste combustion that was updated as a 
result of the October 6, 2009, amendments to federal emission 
guidelines (EG) and New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), 40 CFR 
part 60, subparts Ce and Ec, respectively. This revision and approval 
action relate only to HMIWI units.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before November 2, 2016.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, identified by Docket ID No. EPA-R08-
OAR-2016-0377, at http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the online 
instructions for submitting comments. Once submitted, comments cannot 
be edited or removed from Regulations.gov. The EPA may publish any 
comment received to its public docket. Do not submit electronically any 
information you consider to be Confidential Business Information (CBI) 
or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute. 
Multimedia submissions (audio, video, etc.,) must be accompanied by a 
written comment. The written comment is considered the official comment 
and should include discussion of all points you wish to make. The EPA 
will generally not consider comments or comment contents located 
outside of the primary submission (i.e., on the web, cloud, or other 
file sharing system). For

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
this Federal Register, the EPA is approving Wyoming's HMIWI plan 
revision as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the 
agency views this as a noncontroversial SIP revision and anticipates no 
adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in 
the preamble to the direct final rule. If the EPA receives no adverse 
comments, the EPA will not take further action on this proposed rule. 
If the EPA receives adverse comments, the EPA will withdraw the direct 
final rule and it will not take effect. The EPA will address all public 
comments in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The 
EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any 
parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. Please note 
that if the 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, the EPA may adopt as final those provisions of 
the rule that are not the subject of an adverse comment. See the 
information provided in the Direct Final action of the same title which 
is located in the Rules and Regulations Section of this Federal 
Register.

    Authority: 42 U.S.C. 7401 et seq.

    Dated: May 17, 2016.

Regional Administrator, Region 8.
