DATES: March 2, 2007. SUMMARY: On October 11, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published its preliminary determination of sales at less than fair value (‘‘LTFV’’) in the antidumping investigation of certain activated carbon from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is July 1, 2005, through December 31, 2005. We invited interested parties to comment on our preliminary determination of sales at LTFV. Based on our analysis of the comments we received, we have made changes to our calculations for the mandatory respondents. The final dumping margins for this investigation are listed in the ‘‘Final Determination Margins’’ section below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Catherine Bertrand or Anya Naschak, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3207 or 482–6375, respectively. AGENCY: Final Determination We determine that certain activated carbon from the PRC is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at LTFV as provided in section 735 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). The estimated margins of sales at LTFV are shown in the ‘‘Final Determination Margins’’ section of this notice. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Case History The Department published its preliminary determination of sales at LTFV on October 11, 2006. See Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination: Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China, 71 FR 59721 (October 11, 2006) (‘‘Preliminary Determination’’). The Department conducted verification of Calgon Carbon (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. (‘‘CCT’’) and certain VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:44 Mar 01, 2007 Jkt 211001 of its suppliers. As the Department determined in the Preliminary Determination that Jacobi Carbons AB (‘‘Jacobi AB’’) was the appropriate mandatory respondent in this case (see Preliminary Determination at 71 FR at 59725), the Department conducted verification of Jacobi AB and certain of its suppliers. The Department also conducted verification of Jilin Province Bright Future Chemicals Co. Ltd. (‘‘JBF Chemical’’) and its affiliated company Jilin Province Bright Future Industry & Commerce Co. Ltd. (‘‘JBF Industry’’) (collectively, ‘‘Jilin Bright Future’’) and one of its suppliers, in both the PRC and the United States (where applicable), and Ningxia Huahui Activated Carbon Co., Ltd., one of the separate rate applicants. See the ‘‘Verification’’ section below for additional information. We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Determination. We received a case brief from Carbochem Inc. (‘‘Carbochem’’) on January 11, 2007. We received case briefs from respondents Jacobi AB and CCT on January 16, 2007. We also received a case brief from Calgon Carbon Corporation and Norit Americas Inc. (‘‘Petitioners’’), on January 12, 2007. We received rebuttal briefs on January 22, 2007, from the following companies: Jacobi AB, CCT, Jilin Bright Future, and Petitioners. All parties that timely requested a hearing in this case withdrew those requests prior to the submission of case briefs. Therefore, the Department did not hold a hearing in this case. On February 2, 2007, we invited parties to comment on the revised NME wage rate, to be used in the final determination of this investigation. No parties submitted comments on this issue. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this investigation are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Determination in the Investigation of Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China, dated February 23, 2007, which is hereby adopted by this notice (‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum’’). A list of the issues which parties raised and to which we respond in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached to this notice as an Appendix. The Issue and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file in the Central Records Unit (‘‘CRU’’), Main Commerce Building, Room B–099, and is accessible on the Web at http://www.trade.gov/ia. The paper copy and electronic version PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of the memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Determination Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made changes to the margin calculation for CCT, Jacobi AB and Jilin Bright Future as follows. CCT: We have made changes resulting from minor corrections and findings at CCT’s verifications. For a detailed analysis of CCT’s margin calculation see the Final Analysis Memorandum for CCT, dated February 23, 2007. Jacobi: We have made the following changes to Jacobi AB’s margin calculation: We have determined that it is appropriate to apply partial adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) to Jacobi for its reported factors of production supplied by Ningxia Guanghua Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.’s (‘‘NXGH’’). See below and Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 7. We have revised the application of facts available for one of Jacobi AB’s suppliers. In addition, we have made changes to Jacobi AB’s U.S. sales and factors of production resulting from minor corrections and findings at Jacobi AB’s verifications. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 19 and Memorandum to the File from Anya L. Naschak: Jacobi Carbons AB, Tianjin Jacobi International Trading Co., Ltd., and Jacobi Carbons, Inc. Program Analysis for the Final Determination, dated February 23, 2007 (‘‘Jacobi Final Analysis Memorandum’’). For a detailed analysis of Jacobi AB’s margin calculation, see Jacobi Final Analysis Memorandum. Jilin Bright Future: As discussed in Comment 27 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we have determined to apply total adverse facts available to Jilin Bright Future. We have assigned the PRC–wide margin of 228.11 percent to Jilin Bright Future. In addition, the Department has made changes to its calculation of the truck freight surrogate value as described in the Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 3, and to the calculation of certain chemical inputs as described in the Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 18. See also, Jacobi and CCT’s Final Analysis Memoranda. The Department has also revised the surrogate value for labor to $0.83, a the revised expected wage rate posted on the Department’s website on February 2, 2007. Further, the Department determines that it is appropriate to apply the methodology described in the December 27, 2006 Federal Register E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 41 / Friday, March 2, 2007 / Notices Notice to this investigation. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 4 and Final Modification; Calculation of the Weighted–Average Dumping Margin During an Antidumping Investigation, 71 FR 77722 (December 27, 2006). pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Affiliation The Department preliminarily determined that Jacobi AB, Tianjin Jacobi International Trading Co., Ltd. (‘‘Jacobi Tianjin’’), and Jacobi Carbons, Inc. (‘‘Jacobi US’’) (collectively, ‘‘Jacobi’’) are affiliated with each other, and that Jacobi AB is the appropriate mandatory respondent in this case. See Memorandum to the File: Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China: Affiliation and Treatment of Sales of Jacobi Tianjin International Trading Co., Ltd., Jacobi Carbons AB, and Jacobi Carbons, Inc., dated October 4, 2006, for further details regarding this issue. No comments were received on this issue and no information was placed on the record that would call into question the Department’s determination in this regard. Therefore, the Department continues to find that Jacobi AB, Jacobi Tianjin, and Jacobi US are affiliated and Jacobi AB is the appropriate mandatory respondent in this case. Scope of Investigation The merchandise subject to this investigation is certain activated carbon. Certain activated carbon is a powdered, granular, or pelletized carbon product obtained by ‘‘activating’’ with heat and steam various materials containing carbon, including but not limited to coal (including bituminous, lignite, and anthracite), wood, coconut shells, olive stones, and peat. The thermal and steam treatments remove organic materials and create an internal pore structure in the carbon material. The producer can also use carbon dioxide gas (CO2) in place of steam in this process. The vast majority of the internal porosity developed during the high temperature steam (or CO2 gas) activated process is a direct result of oxidation of a portion of the solid carbon atoms in the raw material, converting them into a gaseous form of carbon. The scope of this investigation covers all forms of activated carbon that are activated by steam or CO2, regardless of the raw material, grade, mixture, additives, further washing or post activation chemical treatment (chemical or water washing, chemical impregnation or other treatment), or product form. Unless specifically excluded, the scope of this investigation covers all physical forms of certain activated carbon, including powdered VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:44 Mar 01, 2007 Jkt 211001 activated carbon (‘‘PAC’’), granular activated carbon (‘‘GAC’’), and pelletized activated carbon. Excluded from the scope of the investigation are chemically–activated carbons. The carbon–based raw material used in the chemical activation process is treated with a strong chemical agent, including but not limited to phosphoric acid, zinc chloride sulfuric acid or potassium hydroxide, that dehydrates molecules in the raw material, and results in the formation of water that is removed from the raw material by moderate heat treatment. The activated carbon created by chemical activation has internal porosity developed primarily due to the action of the chemical dehydration agent. Chemically activated carbons are typically used to activate raw materials with a lignocellulosic component such as cellulose, including wood, sawdust, paper mill waste and peat. To the extent that an imported activated carbon product is a blend of steam and chemically activated carbons, products containing 50 percent or more steam (or CO2 gas) activated carbons are within this scope, and those containing more than 50 percent chemically activated carbons are outside this scope. This exclusion language regarding blended material applies only to mixtures of steam and chemically activated carbons. Also excluded from the scope are reactivated carbons. Reactivated carbons are previously used activated carbons that have had adsorbed materials removed from their pore structure after use through the application of heat, steam and/or chemicals. Also excluded from the scope is activated carbon cloth. Activated carbon cloth is a woven textile fabric made of or containing activated carbon fibers. It is used in masks and filters and clothing of various types where a woven format is required. Any activated carbon meeting the physical description of subject merchandise provided above that is not expressly excluded from the scope is included within this scope. The products under investigation are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheading 3802.10.00. Although HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive. Scope Comments We have addressed comments to the Scope in our Issues and Decision Memorandum and have determined not to revise the scope of this investigation PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9509 other than to clarify that the exclusion for certain blended activated carbon only applies to mixtures of steam and chemically activated carbons. Facts Available Section 776(a)(2) of the Act provides that if an interested party: (A) withholds information that has been requested by the Department; (B) fails to provide such information in a timely manner or in the form or manner requested, subject to subsections 782(c)(1) and (e) of the Act; (C) significantly impedes a determination under the antidumping statute; or (D) provides such information but the information cannot be verified, the Department shall, subject to subsection 782(d) of the Act, use facts otherwise available in reaching the applicable determination. Section 776(b) of the Act states that if the administering authority finds that an interested party has not acted to the best of its ability to comply with a request for information, the administering authority may, in reaching its determination, use an inference that is adverse to that party. The adverse inference may be based upon: (1) the petition, (2) a final determination in the investigation under this title, (3) any previous review under section 751 or determination under section 753, or (4) any other information placed on the record. CCT: For this final determination, in accordance with section 776(a)(2) of the Act and 776(b) of the Act, we have determined that the use of adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) is appropriate for CCT’s suppliers that have been deemed uncooperative. See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 20. As partial AFA, we are applying the weighted–average of the two highest calculated CONNUM–specific NVs selected from all of the cooperating suppliers1 of CCT andJacobi to all sales made by CCT of these suppliers products. See Memorandum to the File from Anya Naschak: Calculation of Adverse Facts Available Rate dated February 23, 2007. Jacobi: For this final determination, in accordance with section 776(a)(2) of the Act and 776(b) of the Act, we have determined that the use of adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) is appropriate for Jacobi’s reported factors of production supplied by Ningxia Guanghua 1 We excluded the supplier NXGH of Jacobi as well as CCT’s suppliers who did not provide FOP information. E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1 9510 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 41 / Friday, March 2, 2007 / Notices Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.’s (‘‘NXGH’’). See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 7. As partial AFA, we are applying the weighted–average of the two highest calculated CONNUM– specific NVs selected from all of the cooperating suppliers2 of CCT and Jacobi to all sales made by Jacobi of NXGH–produced products. See Memorandum to the File From Anya Naschak: Calculation of Adverse Facts Available Rate dated February 23, 2007. Jilin Bright Future: For the final determination, the Department is applying total adverse facts available to Jilin Bright Future. The Department is applying the facts otherwise available to Jilin Bright Future because it failed to provide verifiable factors of production data and misrepresented and misreported its production operations and factors of production, in accordance with sections 776(a)(2)(A), (C) & (D) of the Act. Furthermore, in accordance with section 776(b) of the Act, the Department found that Jilin Bright Future failed to cooperate to the best of its ability to comply with the Department’s request for information, and, therefore, finds an adverse inference is warranted in determining the facts otherwise available. For a complete discussion of this matter, see Comment 27 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Verification As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, we verified the information submitted by the respondents and one separate rate applicant for use in our final determination. See the Department’s verification reports on the record of this investigation in the CRU with respect to CCT, Jacobi, Jilin Bright Future, and Ningxia Huahui Activated Carbon Co., Ltd. For all verified companies, we used standard verification procedures, including examination of relevant accounting and production records, as well as original source documents provided by respondents. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Surrogate Country In the Preliminary Determination, we stated that we had selected India as the appropriate surrogate country to use in this investigation for the following reasons: (1) it is a significant producer of comparable merchandise; (2) it is at a similar level of economic development pursuant to 773(c)(4) of the Act; and (3) we have reliable data from India that we 2 We excluded the supplier NXGH of Jacobi as well as the CCT’s suppliers who did not provided FOP information. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:44 Mar 01, 2007 Jkt 211001 can use to value the factors of production. See Preliminary Determination. For the final determination, we received no comments and made no changes to our findings with respect to the selection of a surrogate country. Separate Rates In proceedings involving non–marketeconomy (‘‘NME’’) countries, the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the Department’s policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to an investigation in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be entitled to a separate rate. See Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Sparklers from the People’s Republic of China, 56 FR 20588 (May 6, 1991) (‘‘Sparklers’’), as amplified by Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from the People’s Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2, 1994) (‘‘Silicon Carbide’’), and Section 351.107(d) of the Department’s regulations. In the Preliminary Determination, we found that CCT, Jacobi and Jilin Bright Future, and the separate rate applicants who received a separate rate (‘‘Separate Rate Applicants’’) in the Preliminary Determination demonstrated their eligibility for separate–rate status. For the final determination, we continue to find that the evidence placed on the record of this investigation by CCT, Jacobi and Jilin Bright Future, and the Separate Rate Applicants demonstrate both a de jure and de facto absence of government control, with respect to their respective exports of the merchandise under investigation, and, thus are eligible for separate rate status. We determined in the Preliminary Determination that Panshan Import and Export Corporation is not entitled to a separate rate. We received no comments on this issue and we continue to find that Panshan Import and Export Corporation is not entitled to a separate rate. The PRC–Wide Rate In the Preliminary Determination, the Department found that certain companies and the PRC–wide entity did not respond to our requests information. In the Preliminary Determination we treated these PRC producers/exporters as part of the PRC–wide entity because they did not demonstrate that they operate free of government control. No PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 additional information has been placed on the record with respect to these entities after the Preliminary Determination. The PRC–wide entity has not provided the Department with the requested information; therefore, pursuant to section 776(a)(2)(A) of the Act, the Department continues to find that the use of facts available is appropriate to determine the PRC–wide rate. Section 776(b) of the Act provides that, in selecting from among the facts otherwise available, the Department may employ an adverse inference if an interested party fails to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability to comply with requests for information. See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Cold– Rolled Flat–Rolled Carbon–Quality Steel Products from the Russian Federation, 65 FR 5510, 5518 (February 4, 2000). See also, ‘‘Statement of Administrative Action’’ accompanying the URAA, H.R. Rep. No. 103–316, vol. 1, at 870 (1994) (‘‘SAA’’). We find that, because the PRC–wide entity did not respond to our request for information, it has failed to cooperate to the best of its ability. The PRC wide entity includes Datong Huibao Activated Carbon Co., Ltd and its affiliated company Beijing Hibridge Trading Co., Ltd., who we preliminary determined was part of the PRC–wide entity as it was selected as a mandatory respondent and then withdrew. Therefore, the Department finds that, in selecting from among the facts otherwise available, an adverse inference is appropriate for the PRC– wide entity. Because we begin with the presumption that all companies within a NME country are subject to government control and because only the companies listed under the ‘‘Final Determination Margins’’ section below have overcome that presumption, we are applying a single antidumping rate - the PRC–wide rate - to all other exporters of subject merchandise from the PRC. Such companies did not demonstrate entitlement to a separate rate. See, e.g., Synthetic Indigo from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 65 FR 25706 (May 3, 2000). The PRC–wide rate applies to all entries of subject merchandise except for entries from the respondents which are listed in the ‘‘Final Determination Margins’’ section below (except as noted). Corroboration At the Preliminary Determination, in accordance with section 776(c) of the Act, we corroborated our adverse facts available (‘‘AFA’’) margin using E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1 9511 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 41 / Friday, March 2, 2007 / Notices information submitted by certain respondents. To assess the probative value of the total AFA rate it has chosen for the PRC–wide entity, the Department compared the final margin calculations of certain respondents in this investigation with the rate of 228.11 percent from the petition, as used in the Preliminary Determination. We continue to find that the rate is within the range of the highest margins we have determined in this investigation. See Memorandum to the File: Corroboration of the PRC–Wide Facts Available Rate for the Final Determination in the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China, dated February 23, 2007 (‘‘Final Corroboration Memo’’). Since the record of this investigation contains margins within the range of 228.11 percent, the margin selected from the petition, we determine that the rate used in the Preliminary Determination continues to be relevant for use in this investigation. As discussed therein, we found that the margin of 228.11 percent has probative value. See Final Corroboration Memo. Accordingly, we find that the rate of 228.11 percent is corroborated within the meaning of section 776(c) of the Act.

Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain 
Activated Carbon from the People's Republic of China

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

DATES: March 2, 2007.
SUMMARY: On October 11, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published its preliminary determination of sales at less 
than fair value (``LTFV'') in the antidumping investigation of certain 
activated carbon from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). The 
period of investigation (``POI'') is July 1, 2005, through December 31, 
2005. We invited interested parties to comment on our preliminary 
determination of sales at LTFV. Based on our analysis of the comments 
we received, we have made changes to our calculations for the mandatory 
respondents. The final dumping margins for this investigation are 
listed in the ``Final Determination Margins'' section below.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Catherine Bertrand or Anya Naschak, 
AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
3207 or 482-6375, respectively.

Final Determination

    We determine that certain activated carbon from the PRC is being, 
or is likely to be, sold in the United States at LTFV as provided in 
section 735 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). The 
estimated margins of sales at LTFV are shown in the ``Final 
Determination Margins'' section of this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Case History

    The Department published its preliminary determination of sales at 
LTFV on October 11, 2006. See Preliminary Determination of Sales at 
Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination: Certain 
Activated Carbon from the People's Republic of China, 71 FR 59721 
(October 11, 2006) (``Preliminary Determination''). The Department 
conducted verification of Calgon Carbon (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. (``CCT'') 
and certain of its suppliers. As the Department determined in the 
Preliminary Determination that Jacobi Carbons AB (``Jacobi AB'') was 
the appropriate mandatory respondent in this case (see Preliminary 
Determination at 71 FR at 59725), the Department conducted verification 
of Jacobi AB and certain of its suppliers. The Department also 
conducted verification of Jilin Province Bright Future Chemicals Co. 
Ltd. (``JBF Chemical'') and its affiliated company Jilin Province 
Bright Future Industry & Commerce Co. Ltd. (``JBF Industry'') 
(collectively, ``Jilin Bright Future'') and one of its suppliers, in 
both the PRC and the United States (where applicable), and Ningxia 
Huahui Activated Carbon Co., Ltd., one of the separate rate applicants. 
See the ``Verification'' section below for additional information.
    We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Determination. We 
received a case brief from Carbochem Inc. (``Carbochem'') on January 
11, 2007. We received case briefs from respondents Jacobi AB and CCT on 
January 16, 2007. We also received a case brief from Calgon Carbon 
Corporation and Norit Americas Inc. (``Petitioners''), on January 12, 
2007. We received rebuttal briefs on January 22, 2007, from the 
following companies: Jacobi AB, CCT, Jilin Bright Future, and 
Petitioners. All parties that timely requested a hearing in this case 
withdrew those requests prior to the submission of case briefs. 
Therefore, the Department did not hold a hearing in this case.
    On February 2, 2007, we invited parties to comment on the revised 
NME wage rate, to be used in the final determination of this 
investigation. No parties submitted comments on this issue.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this investigation are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum 
for the Final Determination in the Investigation of Certain Activated 
Carbon from the People's Republic of China, dated February 23, 2007, 
which is hereby adopted by this notice (``Issues and Decision 
Memorandum''). A list of the issues which parties raised and to which 
we respond in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached to this 
notice as an Appendix. The Issue and Decision Memorandum is a public 
document and is on file in the Central Records Unit (``CRU''), Main 
Commerce Building, Room B-099, and is accessible on the Web at http://
www.trade.gov/ia. The paper copy and electronic version of the 
memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of comments received, we have made changes to 
the margin calculation for CCT, Jacobi AB and Jilin Bright Future as 
follows.

CCT:

    We have made changes resulting from minor corrections and findings 
at CCT's verifications. For a detailed analysis of CCT's margin 
calculation see the Final Analysis Memorandum for CCT, dated February 
23, 2007.

Jacobi:

    We have made the following changes to Jacobi AB's margin 
calculation:
    We have determined that it is appropriate to apply partial adverse 
facts available (``AFA'') to Jacobi for its reported factors of 
production supplied by Ningxia Guanghua Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.'s 
(``NXGH''). See below and Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 7. 
We have revised the application of facts available for one of Jacobi 
AB's suppliers. In addition, we have made changes to Jacobi AB's U.S. 
sales and factors of production resulting from minor corrections and 
findings at Jacobi AB's verifications. See Issues and Decision 
Memorandum at Comment 19 and Memorandum to the File from Anya L. 
Naschak: Jacobi Carbons AB, Tianjin Jacobi International Trading Co., 
Ltd., and Jacobi Carbons, Inc. Program Analysis for the Final 
Determination, dated February 23, 2007 (``Jacobi Final Analysis 
Memorandum''). For a detailed analysis of Jacobi AB's margin 
calculation, see Jacobi Final Analysis Memorandum. Jilin Bright Future:
    As discussed in Comment 27 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum, 
we have determined to apply total adverse facts available to Jilin 
Bright Future. We have assigned the PRC-wide margin of 228.11 percent 
to Jilin Bright Future.
    In addition, the Department has made changes to its calculation of 
the truck freight surrogate value as described in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum at Comment 3, and to the calculation of certain 
chemical inputs as described in the Issues and Decision Memorandum at 
Comment 18. See also, Jacobi and CCT's Final Analysis Memoranda. The 
Department has also revised the surrogate value for labor to $0.83, a 
the revised expected wage rate posted on the Department's website on 
February 2, 2007. Further, the Department determines that it is 
appropriate to apply the methodology described in the December 27, 2006 
Federal Register

Comment 4 and Final Modification; Calculation of the Weighted-Average 
Dumping Margin During an Antidumping Investigation, 71 FR 77722 
(December 27, 2006).

Affiliation

    The Department preliminarily determined that Jacobi AB, Tianjin 
Jacobi International Trading Co., Ltd. (``Jacobi Tianjin''), and Jacobi 
Carbons, Inc. (``Jacobi US'') (collectively, ``Jacobi'') are affiliated 
with each other, and that Jacobi AB is the appropriate mandatory 
respondent in this case. See Memorandum to the File: Certain Activated 
Carbon from the People's Republic of China: Affiliation and Treatment 
of Sales of Jacobi Tianjin International Trading Co., Ltd., Jacobi 
Carbons AB, and Jacobi Carbons, Inc., dated October 4, 2006, for 
further details regarding this issue. No comments were received on this 
issue and no information was placed on the record that would call into 
question the Department's determination in this regard. Therefore, the 
Department continues to find that Jacobi AB, Jacobi Tianjin, and Jacobi 
US are affiliated and Jacobi AB is the appropriate mandatory respondent 
in this case.

Scope of Investigation

    The merchandise subject to this investigation is certain activated 
carbon. Certain activated carbon is a powdered, granular, or pelletized 
carbon product obtained by ``activating'' with heat and steam various 
materials containing carbon, including but not limited to coal 
(including bituminous, lignite, and anthracite), wood, coconut shells, 
olive stones, and peat. The thermal and steam treatments remove organic 
materials and create an internal pore structure in the carbon material. 
The producer can also use carbon dioxide gas (CO[bdi2]) in place of 
steam in this process. The vast majority of the internal porosity 
developed during the high temperature steam (or CO[bdi2] gas) activated 
process is a direct result of oxidation of a portion of the solid 
carbon atoms in the raw material, converting them into a gaseous form 
of carbon.
    The scope of this investigation covers all forms of activated 
carbon that are activated by steam or CO[bdi2], regardless of the raw 
material, grade, mixture, additives, further washing or post activation 
chemical treatment (chemical or water washing, chemical impregnation or 
other treatment), or product form. Unless specifically excluded, the 
scope of this investigation covers all physical forms of certain 
activated carbon, including powdered activated carbon (``PAC''), 
granular activated carbon (``GAC''), and pelletized activated carbon.
    Excluded from the scope of the investigation are chemically-
activated carbons. The carbon-based raw material used in the chemical 
activation process is treated with a strong chemical agent, including 
but not limited to phosphoric acid, zinc chloride sulfuric acid or 
potassium hydroxide, that dehydrates molecules in the raw material, and 
results in the formation of water that is removed from the raw material 
by moderate heat treatment. The activated carbon created by chemical 
activation has internal porosity developed primarily due to the action 
of the chemical dehydration agent. Chemically activated carbons are 
typically used to activate raw materials with a lignocellulosic 
component such as cellulose, including wood, sawdust, paper mill waste 
and peat.
    To the extent that an imported activated carbon product is a blend 
of steam and chemically activated carbons, products containing 50 
percent or more steam (or CO[bdi2] gas) activated carbons are within 
this scope, and those containing more than 50 percent chemically 
activated carbons are outside this scope. This exclusion language 
regarding blended material applies only to mixtures of steam and 
chemically activated carbons.
    Also excluded from the scope are reactivated carbons. Reactivated 
carbons are previously used activated carbons that have had adsorbed 
materials removed from their pore structure after use through the 
application of heat, steam and/or chemicals.
    Also excluded from the scope is activated carbon cloth. Activated 
carbon cloth is a woven textile fabric made of or containing activated 
carbon fibers. It is used in masks and filters and clothing of various 
types where a woven format is required.
    Any activated carbon meeting the physical description of subject 
merchandise provided above that is not expressly excluded from the 
scope is included within this scope. The products under investigation 
are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (``HTSUS'') subheading 3802.10.00. Although HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive. 
Scope Comments
    We have addressed comments to the Scope in our Issues and Decision 
Memorandum and have determined not to revise the scope of this 
investigation other than to clarify that the exclusion for certain 
blended activated carbon only applies to mixtures of steam and 
chemically activated carbons.

Facts Available

    Section 776(a)(2) of the Act provides that if an interested party: 
(A) withholds information that has been requested by the Department; 
(B) fails to provide such information in a timely manner or in the form 
or manner requested, subject to subsections 782(c)(1) and (e) of the 
Act; (C) significantly impedes a determination under the antidumping 
statute; or (D) provides such information but the information cannot be 
verified, the Department shall, subject to subsection 782(d) of the 
Act, use facts otherwise available in reaching the applicable 
determination.
    Section 776(b) of the Act states that if the administering 
authority finds that an interested party has not acted to the best of 
its ability to comply with a request for information, the administering 
authority may, in reaching its determination, use an inference that is 
adverse to that party. The adverse inference may be based upon: (1) the 
petition, (2) a final determination in the investigation under this 
title, (3) any previous review under section 751 or determination under 
section 753, or (4) any other information placed on the record.

CCT:

    For this final determination, in accordance with section 776(a)(2) 
of the Act and 776(b) of the Act, we have determined that the use of 
adverse facts available (``AFA'') is appropriate for CCT's suppliers 
that have been deemed uncooperative. See Issues and Decision Memorandum 
at Comment 20. As partial AFA, we are applying the weighted-average of 
the two highest calculated CONNUM-specific NVs selected from all of the 
cooperating suppliers\1\ of CCT andJacobi to all sales made by CCT of 
these suppliers products. See Memorandum to the File from Anya Naschak: 
Calculation of Adverse Facts Available Rate dated February 23, 2007.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ We excluded the supplier NXGH of Jacobi as well as CCT's 
suppliers who did not provide FOP information.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jacobi:

    For this final determination, in accordance with section 776(a)(2) 
of the Act and 776(b) of the Act, we have determined that the use of 
adverse facts available (``AFA'') is appropriate for Jacobi's reported 
factors of production supplied by Ningxia Guanghua

[[Page 9510]]

Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.'s (``NXGH''). See Issues and Decision 
Memorandum at Comment 7. As partial AFA, we are applying the weighted-
average of the two highest calculated CONNUM-specific NVs selected from 
all of the cooperating suppliers\2\ of CCT and Jacobi to all sales made 
by Jacobi of NXGH-produced products. See Memorandum to the File From 
Anya Naschak: Calculation of Adverse Facts Available Rate dated 
February 23, 2007.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ We excluded the supplier NXGH of Jacobi as well as the CCT's 
suppliers who did not provided FOP information.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jilin Bright Future:

    For the final determination, the Department is applying total 
adverse facts available to Jilin Bright Future. The Department is 
applying the facts otherwise available to Jilin Bright Future because 
it failed to provide verifiable factors of production data and 
misrepresented and misreported its production operations and factors of 
production, in accordance with sections 776(a)(2)(A), (C) & (D) of the 
Act. Furthermore, in accordance with section 776(b) of the Act, the 
Department found that Jilin Bright Future failed to cooperate to the 
best of its ability to comply with the Department's request for 
information, and, therefore, finds an adverse inference is warranted in 
determining the facts otherwise available. For a complete discussion of 
this matter, see Comment 27 of the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, we verified the 
information submitted by the respondents and one separate rate 
applicant for use in our final determination. See the Department's 
verification reports on the record of this investigation in the CRU 
with respect to CCT, Jacobi, Jilin Bright Future, and Ningxia Huahui 
Activated Carbon Co., Ltd. For all verified companies, we used standard 
verification procedures, including examination of relevant accounting 
and production records, as well as original source documents provided 
by respondents.

Surrogate Country

    In the Preliminary Determination, we stated that we had selected 
India as the appropriate surrogate country to use in this investigation 
for the following reasons: (1) it is a significant producer of 
comparable merchandise; (2) it is at a similar level of economic 
development pursuant to 773(c)(4) of the Act; and (3) we have reliable 
data from India that we can use to value the factors of production. See 
Preliminary Determination. For the final determination, we received no 
comments and made no changes to our findings with respect to the 
selection of a surrogate country.

Separate Rates

    In proceedings involving non-market-economy (``NME'') countries, 
the Department begins with a rebuttable presumption that all companies 
within the country are subject to government control and, thus, should 
be assigned a single antidumping duty deposit rate. It is the 
Department's policy to assign all exporters of merchandise subject to 
an investigation in an NME country this single rate unless an exporter 
can demonstrate that it is sufficiently independent so as to be 
entitled to a separate rate. See Final Determination of Sales at Less 
Than Fair Value: Sparklers from the People's Republic of China, 56 FR 
20588 (May 6, 1991) (``Sparklers''), as amplified by Notice of Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Silicon Carbide from 
the People's Republic of China, 59 FR 22585 (May 2, 1994) (``Silicon 
Carbide''), and Section 351.107(d) of the Department's regulations.
    In the Preliminary Determination, we found that CCT, Jacobi and 
Jilin Bright Future, and the separate rate applicants who received a 
separate rate (``Separate Rate Applicants'') in the Preliminary 
Determination demonstrated their eligibility for separate-rate status. 
For the final determination, we continue to find that the evidence 
placed on the record of this investigation by CCT, Jacobi and Jilin 
Bright Future, and the Separate Rate Applicants demonstrate both a de 
jure and de facto absence of government control, with respect to their 
respective exports of the merchandise under investigation, and, thus 
are eligible for separate rate status. We determined in the Preliminary 
Determination that Panshan Import and Export Corporation is not 
entitled to a separate rate. We received no comments on this issue and 
we continue to find that Panshan Import and Export Corporation is not 
entitled to a separate rate.

The PRC-Wide Rate

    In the Preliminary Determination, the Department found that certain 
companies and the PRC-wide entity did not respond to our requests 
information. In the Preliminary Determination we treated these PRC 
producers/exporters as part of the PRC-wide entity because they did not 
demonstrate that they operate free of government control. No additional 
information has been placed on the record with respect to these 
entities after the Preliminary Determination. The PRC-wide entity has 
not provided the Department with the requested information; therefore, 
pursuant to section 776(a)(2)(A) of the Act, the Department continues 
to find that the use of facts available is appropriate to determine the 
PRC-wide rate. Section 776(b) of the Act provides that, in selecting 
from among the facts otherwise available, the Department may employ an 
adverse inference if an interested party fails to cooperate by not 
acting to the best of its ability to comply with requests for 
information. See Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than 
Fair Value: Certain Cold-Rolled Flat-Rolled Carbon-Quality Steel 
Products from the Russian Federation, 65 FR 5510, 5518 (February 4, 
2000). See also, ``Statement of Administrative Action'' accompanying 
the URAA, H.R. Rep. No. 103-316, vol. 1, at 870 (1994) (``SAA''). We 
find that, because the PRC-wide entity did not respond to our request 
for information, it has failed to cooperate to the best of its ability. 
The PRC wide entity includes Datong Huibao Activated Carbon Co., Ltd 
and its affiliated company Beijing Hibridge Trading Co., Ltd., who we 
preliminary determined was part of the PRC-wide entity as it was 
selected as a mandatory respondent and then withdrew. Therefore, the 
Department finds that, in selecting from among the facts otherwise 
available, an adverse inference is appropriate for the PRC-wide entity.
    Because we begin with the presumption that all companies within a 
NME country are subject to government control and because only the 
companies listed under the ``Final Determination Margins'' section 
below have overcome that presumption, we are applying a single 
antidumping rate - the PRC-wide rate - to all other exporters of 
subject merchandise from the PRC. Such companies did not demonstrate 
entitlement to a separate rate. See, e.g., Synthetic Indigo from the 
People's Republic of China: Notice of Final Determination of Sales at 
Less Than Fair Value, 65 FR 25706 (May 3, 2000). The PRC-wide rate 
applies to all entries of subject merchandise except for entries from 
the respondents which are listed in the ``Final Determination Margins'' 
section below (except as noted).

Corroboration

    At the Preliminary Determination, in accordance with section 776(c) 
of the Act, we corroborated our adverse facts available (``AFA'') 
margin using

[[Page 9511]]

information submitted by certain respondents. To assess the probative 
value of the total AFA rate it has chosen for the PRC-wide entity, the 
Department compared the final margin calculations of certain 
respondents in this investigation with the rate of 228.11 percent from 
the petition, as used in the Preliminary Determination. We continue to 
find that the rate is within the range of the highest margins we have 
determined in this investigation. See Memorandum to the File: 
Corroboration of the PRC-Wide Facts Available Rate for the Final 
Determination in the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain 
Activated Carbon from the People's Republic of China, dated February 
23, 2007 (``Final Corroboration Memo''). Since the record of this 
investigation contains margins within the range of 228.11 percent, the 
margin selected from the petition, we determine that the rate used in 
the Preliminary Determination continues to be relevant for use in this 
investigation. As discussed therein, we found that the margin of 228.11 
percent has probative value. See Final Corroboration Memo. Accordingly, 
we find that the rate of 228.11 percent is corroborated within the 
meaning of section 776(c) of the Act.

Combination Rates

    In its initiation notice, the Department stated that it would 
calculate combination rates for certain respondents that are eligible 
for a separate rate in this investigation. See Initiation of 
Antidumping Duty Investigation: Certain Activated Carbon From the 
People's Republic of China, 71 FR 16757 (April 4, 2006) (``Initiation 
Notice''). Therefore, for the final determination, we have assigned a 
combination rate to respondents that are eligible for a separate rate.

Final Determination Margins

    We determine that the following percentage weighted-average margins 
exist for the POI:

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of the 
date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to continue to suspend 
liquidation of all entries of subject merchandise from the PRC entered, 
or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after October 11, 
2006, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination. CBP 
shall continue to require a cash deposit or the posting of a bond equal 
to the estimated amount by which the normal value exceeds the U.S. 
price as shown above. These instructions suspending liquidation will 
remain in effect until further notice.

ITC Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we have notified the 
International Trade Commission (``ITC'') of our final determination of 
sales at LTFV. As our final determination is affirmative, in accordance 
with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, within 45 days the ITC will 
determine whether the domestic industry in the United States is 
materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of 
imports or sales (or the likelihood of sales) for importation of the 
subject merchandise. If the ITC determines that material injury or 
threat of material injury does not exist, the proceeding will be 
terminated and all securities posted will be refunded or canceled. If 
the ITC determines that such injury does exist, the Department will 
issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP

[[Page 9513]]

to assess antidumping duties on all imports of the subject merchandise 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
effective date of the suspension of liquidation.

Notification Regarding APO

    This notice also serves as a reminder to the parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely notification of return or 
destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order 
is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the 
terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This determination and 
notice are issued and published in accordance with sections 735(d) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.
    This determination and notice are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: February 23, 2007.
