SUMMARY: On March 15, 2012, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) initiated the first five-year (‘‘sunset’’) review of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). On the basis of a notice of intent to participate and an adequate substantive response filed on behalf of the domestic interested parties, as well as a lack of response from respondent interested parties, the Department conducted an expedited sunset review of the antidumping duty order, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the PRC would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the levels indicated in the ‘‘Final AGENCY: Certification of U.S. Importer for PRC SDGE Exports I hereby certify that I am an official of {insert name of company importing small diameter graphite electrodes (‘‘SDGE’’) from UKCG,} and that, to the best of my knowledge, the SDGE imported under the following entry numbers was produced from PRC-origin artificial graphite rods/unfinished SDGE: • Entry # Date of Entry: • Entry # Date of Entry: * * * By signing this certificate, the importer stipulates its understanding that: • It is the importer’s responsibility to accurately declare this entry upon importation to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) as an entry subject to antidumping duties and to accurately report the cash deposit rate applicable to these imports. • The importer of the above certified merchandise is required to maintain this certification for individual entries for the later of (1) a period of five years from the date of entry or (2) a period of three years after VerDate Mar<15>2010 the conclusion of any litigation in United States courts regarding such entries. • The importer will be required to produce this certification and UKCG’s certification upon the request of CBP. • The importer may be required to produce additional documentation, sourced from UKCG, to substantiate the supplier claim made in the certification in response to a request from CBP. • Should further investigation prove this certification to be false, CBP may take appropriate action to penalize the importer. As such, it is the importer’s responsibility to provide any documentation from UKCG that may be needed to substantiate the above certified claims. • The importer is required to complete this certification on the date of entry. • For entries of SDGEs from UKCG which the importer believes should be assessed at a rate other than the PRC-wide rate, the importer must have a certification from UKCG identifying the supplier of the artificial graphite rods/unfinished SDGE subject to the antidumping duty order on SDGEs from the PRC.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 1, 2012, the Department initiated the first sunset review of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the PRC, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c)(2).1 The Department received a notice of intent to participate from Calgon Carbon Corporation, Norit Americas, Inc., and ADA Carbon Solutions LLC (collectively, ‘‘the domestic interested parties’’) within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i).2 The domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as manufacturers of a domestic like product in the United States. We received a complete substantive response from the domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).3 We received no responses from respondent interested parties. As a result, the Department conducted an expedited sunset review of the Order, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order 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 1 See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 77 FR 12562 (March 1, 2012); see also Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Activated Carbon From the People’s Republic of China, 72 FR 20988 (April 27, 2007) (‘‘Order’’). 2 See Letter from domestic interested parties, re: ‘‘Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review of the Antidumping Order on Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China: Domestic Interested Parties’ Intent to Participate,’’ dated March 15, 2012. 3 See Letter from domestic interested parties, re: ‘‘Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review of the Antidumping Order on Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China: Domestic Industry’s Substantive Response,’’ dated March 30, 2012.

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 the order covers all forms of activated carbon that are activated by steam or CO2, regardless of the raw material, grade, mixture, additives, further washing or postactivation chemical treatment (chemical or water washing, chemical impregnation or other treatment), or product form. Unless specifically excluded, the scope of the order 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 order 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 the scope, and those containing more than 50 percent chemically activated carbons are outside the 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 the scope. The products subject to the order are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheading 3802.10.00. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in this review are addressed in the ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China’’ (‘‘Decision Memorandum’’) from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice. The issues discussed in the Decision Memorandum include the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping and the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail if the order was to be revoked.

Certain Activated Carbon From the People's Republic of China: 
Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: On March 15, 2012, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated the first five-year (``sunset'') review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People's 
Republic of China (``PRC'') pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). On the basis of a notice of 
intent to participate and an adequate substantive response filed on 
behalf of the domestic interested parties, as well as a lack of 
response from respondent interested parties, the Department conducted 
an expedited sunset review of the antidumping duty order, pursuant to 
section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As 
a result of this sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of 
the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the PRC 
would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the 
levels indicated in the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this 
notice.

DATES: Effective Date: June 6, 2012.

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

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order 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

[[Page 33421]]

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 the order 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 the order 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 order 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 the scope, and those containing more than 50 percent chemically 
activated carbons are outside the 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 the scope. The products subject to the order 
are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States (``HTSUS'') subheading 3802.10.00. Although the HTSUS 
subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in this review are addressed in the ``Issues and 
Decision Memorandum for the Expedited Sunset Review of the Antidumping 
Duty Order on Certain Activated Carbon from the People's Republic of 
China'' (``Decision Memorandum'') from Christian Marsh, Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, 
to Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated 
concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice. The issues 
discussed in the Decision Memorandum include the likelihood of 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and the magnitude of the margins 
likely to prevail if the order was to be revoked. Parties may find a 
complete discussion of all issues raised in the review and the 
corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum which is on 
file electronically via Import Administration's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Services System (``IA 
ACCESS''). Access to IA ACCESS is available in the Central Records Unit 
room 7046 of the main Commerce building. In addition, a complete 
version of the Decision Memorandum can be access directly on the Web at 
http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The signed Decision Memorandum and the 
electronic versions of the Decision Memorandum are identical in 
content.

Final Results of Review

    We determine that revocation of the Order would be likely to lead 
to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the following weighted-
average percentage margins:
