The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on October 27, 2009. MST’s facility (20 employees, 10,000 square feet of enclosed space) is located at 3607 North Loop 336 West, Conroe, Texas. The facility is used for the research, development, manufacturing, warehousing and distribution of a polyphosphazene elastomer intermediate which will be used in aerospace, oil and gas production, and medical device applications. Current annual production capacity is 15 metric tons with projections up to 100 metric tons. The request indicates that the manufacturing process also produces a fire-retardant chemical by-product. Components and materials sourced from abroad (representing some 20% of the value of the finished product) include: octafluoropentanol, trifluoroethanol, and phosphonitrilic chloride trimer (duty rates range from 2.8% to 5.5%). FTZ procedures could exempt MST from customs duty payments on the foreign components used in export production. The company anticipates that some 50 percent of the plant’s shipments will be exported. On its domestic sales, MST would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to the elastomer (duty-free) and the fireretardant chemical (2.8%) for the foreign inputs noted above. FTZ designation would further allow MST to realize logistical benefits through certain customs procedures. The request indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the plant’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Diane Finver of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:29 Nov 03, 2009 Jkt 220001 record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board.

The closing period for their receipt is January 4, 2010. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to January 19, 2010.
