Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 141 / Tuesday, July 25, 2017 / Notices which I take official notice,5 Registrant’s registration did, in fact, expire on June 30, 2017. Moreover, Registrant has not filed a renewal application, whether timely or not. It is well settled that ‘‘[i]f a registrant has not submitted a timely renewal application prior to the expiration date, then the registration expires and there is nothing to revoke.’’ Ronald J. Riegel, 63 FR 67132, 67133 (1998); see also William W. Nucklos, 73 FR 34330 (2008). Furthermore, because Registrant did not file a renewal application, there is no application to act upon. See Nucklos, 73 FR at 34330. Accordingly, because there is neither a registration, nor an application, to act upon, I hold that this case is now moot. Order Pursuant to the authority vested in me by 21 U.S.C. 824(a), as well as 28 CFR 0.100(b), I order that the Order to Show Cause issued to Mohammed S. Aljanaby, M.D., be, and it hereby is, dismissed. Dated: July 14, 2017. Chuck Rosenberg, Acting Administrator.

Essroc Cement Corp., Civil No. 2:11–cv–01650. The Court approved the original Consent Decree in 2012, resolving claims under the Clean Air Act against six Essroc cement facilities in three states and Puerto Rico. The proposed Third Modification affects only Defendant’s Logansport facility in Logansport, Indiana. The proposed Third Modification reworks requirements for controlling emissions of nitrogen oxides, known as NOX, at Logansport. Under the proposed agreement, Essroc will no longer be required to install a NOX control technology known as SNCR (which stands for selective non-catalytic reduction) at Logansport Kiln 2. Instead, Essroc will be required to install water injection technology, another NOX control technology, at both Logansport kilns. In addition, the proposed agreement reduces the allowable NOX emissions rate at both kilns. Finally, the proposed Third Modification notes that Essroc is now known as Lehigh Hanson ECC. The publication of this notice opens a period for public comment on the Third Modification. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and should refer to United States v. Essroc Cement Corp., D.J. Ref. No. 90–5–2–1–09608. All comments must be submitted no later than thirty (30) days after the publication date of this notice. Comments may be submitted either by email or by mail: To submit comments: Send them to: By email ...... pubcomment-ees.enrd@ usdoj.gov. Assistant Attorney General, U.S. DOJ—ENRD, P.O. Box 7611, Washington, DC 20044–7611. By mail ........ During the public comment period, the Third Modification may be examined and downloaded at this Justice Department Web site: https:// www.justice.gov/enrd/consent-decrees.
