[TA-W-57,446]


Hercules Incorporation, Aqualon Division, Parlin, New Jersey; 
Notice of Negative Determination on Reconsideration

    On August 19, 2005, the Department issued an Affirmative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration for the workers 
and former workers of Hercules Incorporation, Aqualon Division, Parlin, 
New Jersey (``Hercules''). The Department's Notice was published in the 
Federal Register on September 1, 2005 (70 FR 52131). The petition date 
is June 24, 2005.
    The Department initially denied Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) 
and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance (ATAA) to the subject 
worker group On July 20, 2005 because the subject company did not 
separate or threaten to separate a significant number or proportion of 
workers as required by Section 222 of the Trade Act during the relevant 
period.
    In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner alleged that the 
company separated a majority of the workers at the Power House, which 
produces steam used in the production of a chemical called Natrosol and 
that the Power House supplied a component (steam) to a company which 
was certified for TAA during January 2004.
    The reconsideration investigation revealed that the Power House 
produced steam that was both used to produce Natrosol at the Parlin, 
New Jersey plant and sold to a TAA-certified company.
    To be certified as secondarily-affected, workers must be employed 
by a company which, during the relevant period, supplied a component 
part to a TAA-certified company and the separations are related to the 
production of the import-impacted article.
    Because the sale of steam to the TAA-certified company ceased in 
2003, loss of business to that company prior to the relevant period 
cannot be used as a basis for TAA certification for workers at the 
Hercules Power House.
    Further, the reconsideration investigation revealed that the Power 
House, which is eighty years old and in need of repair, will be 
replaced by a newer, automated, and more cost-efficient structure which 
requires less staff to operate.

Conclusion

    After reconsideration, I affirm the original notice of negative 
determination of eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance 
for workers and former workers of Hercules Incorporation, Aqualon 
Division, Parlin, New Jersey.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 13th day of September 2005.

Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
