Scope of the Order Merchandise covered by this order is pure magnesium regardless of chemistry, form or size, unless expressly excluded from the scope of this order. Pure magnesium is a metal or alloy containing by weight primarily the element magnesium and produced by decomposing raw materials into magnesium metal. Pure primary magnesium is used primarily as a chemical in the aluminum alloying, desulfurization, and chemical reduction industries. In addition, pure magnesium is used as an input in producing magnesium alloy. Pure magnesium encompasses products (including, but not limited to, butt ends, stubs, crowns and crystals) with the following primary magnesium contents: (1) Products that contain at least 99.95% primary magnesium, by weight (generally referred to as ‘‘ultra pure’’ magnesium); (2) Products that contain less than 99.95% but not less than 99.8% primary magnesium, by weight (generally referred to as ‘‘pure’’ magnesium); and (3) Products that contain 50% or greater, but less than 99.8% primary magnesium, by weight, and that do not conform to ASTM specifications for alloy magnesium (generally referred to as ‘‘off–specification pure’’ magnesium). ‘‘Off-specification pure’’ magnesium is pure primary magnesium containing magnesium scrap, secondary magnesium, oxidized magnesium or impurities (whether or not intentionally added) that cause the primary magnesium content to fall below 99.8% by weight. It generally does not contain, individually or in combination, 1.5% or more, by weight, of the following alloying elements: aluminum, manganese, zinc, silicon, thorium, zirconium and rare earths. Excluded from the scope of this order are alloy primary magnesium (that meets specifications for alloy magnesium), primary magnesium anodes, granular primary magnesium (including turnings, chips and powder) having a maximum physical dimension (i.e., length or diameter) of one inch or less, secondary magnesium (which has pure primary magnesium content of less than 50% by weight), and remelted magnesium whose pure primary magnesium content is less than 50% by weight. Pure magnesium products covered by this order are currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings E:\FR\FM\16DEN1.SGM 16DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 242 / Tuesday, December 16, 2008 / Notices 8104.11.00, 8104.19.00, 8104.20.00, 8104.30.00, 8104.90.00, 3824.90.11, 3824.90.19 and 9817.00.90. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope is dispositive. Surrogate Country In the Preliminary Results, we stated that we selected India as the appropriate surrogate country to use in this review for the following reasons: (1) it is a significant producer of comparable merchandise; (2) it is at a similar level of economic development comparable to that of the PRC; and (3) we have reliable data from India that we can use to value the factors of production.5 For the final determination, we received no comments and made no changes to our findings with respect to the selection of a surrogate country. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on an analysis of the comments received, the Department has made certain changes in the margin calculations. For the final results, the Department has made the following changes: General Issues sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Calculation of Surrogate Financial Ratios • We determined the surrogate financial ratios using only the financial statements of Madras Aluminium Company Limited (‘‘MALCO’’). Recalculation of Surrogate Values • We based the surrogate value for dolomite on the average purchase price for dolomite reflected in the financial statements for Tata Steel Ltd. and Tata Sponge Iron Limited as of March 31, 2007. • We valued TMI’s magnesium scrap using the HTS 8104.11.00, for material unwrought containing 99.8 percent magnesium. • We multiplied the value of truck freight by one thousand to express the freight rates in metric tons. • We based the surrogate value for magnesium chloride and flux no. 2 on the values reported for magnesium chloride, potassium chloride and sodium chloride in Chemical Weekly. • We continued to use the Heat Content percentage methodology. However, we calculated a ratio using the heat value Datuhe reported for its coal gas and the heat value of natural gas derived from the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas of the 5 See Preliminary Results. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:09 Dec 15, 2008 Jkt 217001 Indian Government, and applied this ratio to the natural gas value derived from the World Trade Atlas Thailand import statistics as the surrogate value for the coal gas. Company–Specific Issues Datuhe • For the Preliminary Results, we granted Datuhe a by–product offset in full. For the final results, we granted Datuhe a by–product offset for magnesium residue sales substantiated by the sales receipts it provided. TMI • We revised our calculation of NV to include a by–product offset for TMI. Final Results Margins We determine that the following weighted–average percentage margins exist for the POR: PURE MAGNESIUM FROM THE PRC 76337 date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: 1) for the exporters listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rates shown for those companies; 2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non– PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter–specific rate published for the most recent period; 3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC– wide rate of 108.26 percent; and 4) for all non–PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporters that supplied that non–PRC exporter.

Abstract: This invention is jointly owned by the Department of Commerce, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the University of California, Protiro, Inc., and Honeywell. A design for an atomic magnetometer that simultaneously achieves high sensitivity, simple fabrication and small size is described. This design is based on a diverging (or converging) beam of light (in a single spatial optical mode) that passes through an alkali atom vapor cell and that contains a distribution of beam propagation vectors. The existence of more than one propagation direction permits longitudinal optical pumping of the atomic system and simultaneous detection of the transverse atomic polarization. The design could be implemented with a micromachined alkali vapor cell and light from a single semiconductor laser. A small modification to the cell contents and excitation geometry allows for use as a gyroscope. [Nist Docket Number: 07–021].

PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The correction of stray light errors is simply a matrix multiplication to the measured raw image. The correction is fast and can be used for correction of stray light errors in any types of measured images. [Nist Docket Number: 07–022] Title: Covalently Immobilized Fluorinated Carboxylic Acid Stationary Phases for Liquid Chromatography. Abstract: This invention relates to stationary phases for liquid chromatography, and more particularly, to fluorinated stationary phases for improved separation of constituents in the mobile phase and methods of making. [Nist Docket Number: 07–025]. Title: Doubling the Service Life of Concrete—Reducing Diffusion Rates via Modification of the Hydrodynamic Friction of the Pore Solution. Abstract: The invention consists of a unique method to reduce diffusion rates in concrete by increasing the hydrodynamic friction on ionic species in the concrete pore solution. This novel approach involves changing the properties of the pore solution, rather than the microstructure. Conventionally, diffusion rates for concrete structures have been reduced by densifying the cement paste matrix component of the concrete via a reduction in water-to-cement ratio and/ or the addition of fine pozzolanic materials such as silica fume and/or fly ash. Still, in every case, the pathways for diffusion are through the interconnected pore solution that saturates the porosity at all scales. By appropriately increasing the hydrodynamic friction, the diffusion rates of all ionic species (sulfates, chlorides, alkalis) can be reduced. Theory indicates that these diffusion rates will be inversely proportional to the solution’s hydrodynamic friction coeffcient, so that doubling the hydrodynamic friction will reduce the diffusion coeffcients by a factor of two, which in turn should lead to a doubling of the service life for many degradation modes (sulfate attack, corrosion, etc.). [Nist Docket Number: 07–027]. Title: Harvesting of Processed Carbon Nanotubes. Abstract: This invention is jointly owned by the Department of Commerce and the University of Maryland. The invention provides a cost-effective, multi-step, scalable process employing grit shearing to remove the amorphous carbon shell and external catalyst contaminant from carbon nanotubes, separate bundles of nanotubes, and shorten the tubes.

Administration, ``Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results 
of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and New Shipper Review of 
Pure Magnesium from the People's Republic of China,'' dated December 8, 
2008, 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 Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public

memorandum are identical in content.

Period of Review

    The POR is May 1, 2006, through April 30, 2007.

Scope of the Order

    Merchandise covered by this order is pure magnesium regardless of 
chemistry, form or size, unless expressly excluded from the scope of 
this order. Pure magnesium is a metal or alloy containing by weight 
primarily the element magnesium and produced by decomposing raw 
materials into magnesium metal. Pure primary magnesium is used 
primarily as a chemical in the aluminum alloying, desulfurization, and 
chemical reduction industries. In addition, pure magnesium is used as 
an input in producing magnesium alloy. Pure magnesium encompasses 
products (including, but not limited to, butt ends, stubs, crowns and 
crystals) with the following primary magnesium contents: (1) Products 
that contain at least 99.95[percnt] primary magnesium, by weight 
(generally referred to as ``ultra pure'' magnesium); (2) Products that 
contain less than 99.95[percnt] but not less than 99.8[percnt] primary 
magnesium, by weight (generally referred to as ``pure'' magnesium); and 
(3) Products that contain 50[percnt] or greater, but less than 
99.8[percnt] primary magnesium, by weight, and that do not conform to 
ASTM specifications for alloy magnesium (generally referred to as 
``off-specification pure'' magnesium).
    ``Off-specification pure'' magnesium is pure primary magnesium 
containing magnesium scrap, secondary magnesium, oxidized magnesium or 
impurities (whether or not intentionally added) that cause the primary 
magnesium content to fall below 99.8[percnt] by weight. It generally 
does not contain, individually or in combination, 1.5[percnt] or more, 
by weight, of the following alloying elements: aluminum, manganese, 
zinc, silicon, thorium, zirconium and rare earths.
    Excluded from the scope of this order are alloy primary magnesium 
(that meets specifications for alloy magnesium), primary magnesium 
anodes, granular primary magnesium (including turnings, chips and 
powder) having a maximum physical dimension (i.e., length or diameter) 
of one inch or less, secondary magnesium (which has pure primary 
magnesium content of less than 50[percnt] by weight), and remelted 
magnesium whose pure primary magnesium content is less than 50[percnt] 
by weight.
    Pure magnesium products covered by this order are currently 
classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) subheadings

8104.11.00, 8104.19.00, 8104.20.00, 8104.30.00, 8104.90.00, 3824.90.11, 
3824.90.19 and 9817.00.90. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided 
for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the 
scope is dispositive.

Surrogate Country

    In the Preliminary Results, we stated that we selected India as the 
appropriate surrogate country to use in this review for the following 
reasons: (1) it is a significant producer of comparable merchandise; 
(2) it is at a similar level of economic development comparable to that 
of the PRC; and (3) we have reliable data from India that we can use to 
value the factors of production.\5\ For the final determination, we 
received no comments and made no changes to our findings with respect 
to the selection of a surrogate country.

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

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on an analysis of the comments received, the Department has 
made certain changes in the margin calculations. For the final results, 
the Department has made the following changes:

General Issues

Calculation of Surrogate Financial Ratios

 We determined the surrogate financial ratios using only the 
financial statements of Madras Aluminium Company Limited (``MALCO'').

Recalculation of Surrogate Values

 We based the surrogate value for dolomite on the average 
purchase price for dolomite reflected in the financial statements for 
Tata Steel Ltd. and Tata Sponge Iron Limited as of March 31, 2007.
 We valued TMI's magnesium scrap using the HTS 8104.11.00, for 
material unwrought containing 99.8 percent magnesium.
 We multiplied the value of truck freight by one thousand to 
express the freight rates in metric tons.
 We based the surrogate value for magnesium chloride and flux 
no. 2 on the values reported for magnesium chloride, potassium chloride 
and sodium chloride in Chemical Weekly.
 We continued to use the Heat Content percentage methodology. 
However, we calculated a ratio using the heat value Datuhe reported for 
its coal gas and the heat value of natural gas derived from the 
Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas of the Indian Government, and 
applied this ratio to the natural gas value derived from the World 
Trade Atlas Thailand import statistics as the surrogate value for the 
coal gas.

Company-Specific Issues

Datuhe

 For the Preliminary Results, we granted Datuhe a by-product 
offset in full. For the final results, we granted Datuhe a by-product 
offset for magnesium residue sales substantiated by the sales receipts 
it provided.

TMI

 We revised our calculation of NV to include a by-product 
offset for TMI.

Final Results Margins

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

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

Assessment Rates

    The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries. For customers/importers of the respondents for 
whom we do not have entered value, we have calculated customer/
importer-specific antidumping duty assessment amounts based on the 
ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the 
examined sales of subject merchandise to the total quantity of subject 
merchandise sold in those transactions. For customers/importers of the 
respondents that reported entered value, we have calculated customer-
specific antidumping duty assessment amounts based on customer/
importer-specific ad valorem rates in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). The Department intends to issue assessment instructions 
to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of 
administrative review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of these final results of administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: 1) for the exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rates shown for those 
companies; 2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC 
exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the 
most recent period; 3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise 
which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash 
deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 108.26 percent; and 4) for 
all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received 
their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to 
the PRC exporters that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit

Notification of Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APOs'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction 
of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.

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).
    We are issuing and publishing these final results and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
