ACTION: Notice of Availability. AGENCY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joseph Nick, Commercial and R&D Branch, Division of Nuclear Materials Safety, Region I, 475 Allendale Road, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania 19406, telephone (610) 337–5056, fax (610) 337–5269; or by e-mail: JLN@nrc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the issuance of a license amendment to DGI Biotechnologies, LLC (DGI) for Materials License No. 29–30389–01, to authorize release of its facility in Edison, New Jersey for unrestricted use and terminate the license. NRC has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this proposed action in accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR part 51. Based on the EA, the NRC has concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is appropriate. The amendment will be issued following the publication of this Notice. cchase on PROD1PC60 with NOTICES II. EA Summary The purpose of the proposed action is to authorize the release of the licensee’s Edison, New Jersey facility for unrestricted use and terminate the license. DGI was authorized by NRC from 1997 to use radioactive materials for research and development purposes at the site. In 2003, DGI ceased operations with licensed materials at the Edison site and the DGI facility was taken over by Antyra, Inc. (Antyra). On September 28, 2005, Antyra requested that NRC release the facility for unrestricted use. Antyra has conducted surveys of the facility and provided information to the NRC to demonstrate that the site meets the license termination criteria in subpart E of 10 CFR part 20 for unrestricted release. The NRC staff has prepared an EA in support of the license amendment. The facility was remediated and surveyed prior to the licensee requesting the license amendment. The NRC staff has reviewed the information and final VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:38 Apr 28, 2006 Jkt 208001 status survey submitted by Antyra. Based on its review, the staff has determined that there are no additional remediation activities necessary to complete the proposed action. Therefore, the staff considered the impact of the residual radioactivity at the facility and concluded that since the residual radioactivity meets the requirements in subpart E of 10 CFR part 20, a Finding of No Significant Impact is appropriate. III. Finding of No Significant Impact The staff has prepared the EA (summarized above) in support of the license amendment to terminate the license and release the facility for unrestricted use. The NRC staff has evaluated Antyra’s request and the results of the surveys and has concluded that the completed action complies with the criteria in subpart E of 10 CFR part 20. The staff has found that the radiological environmental impacts from the action are bounded by the impacts evaluated by NUREG–1496, Volumes 1–3, ‘‘Generic Environmental Impact Statement in Support of Rulemaking on Radiological Criteria for License Termination of NRC-Licensed Facilities’’ (ML042310492, ML042320379, and ML042330385). Additionally, no non-radiological or cumulative impacts were identified. On the basis of the EA, the NRC has concluded that there are no significant environmental impacts from the proposed action, and has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action. IV.
