WASHINGTON, May 1, 2015-- The U.S. Department of Commerce today announced its preliminary antidumping margins calculated in connection with the seventh annual administrative review of the antidumping duty order on steam activated carbon from the People's Republic of China, noted Kelley Drye & Warren, LLP, counsel to domestic activated carbon manufacturers.  Activated carbon is used in drinking water, wastewater, odor control, and pollution abatement systems. 
 
The specific preliminary margins calculated by the Commerce Department are as follows:
 
Jacobi Carbons AB: $0.53/kg.
(includes: Tianjin Jacobi International Trading Co., Ltd. and Jacobi Carbons, Inc.)
 
Datong Juqiang Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.: $0.00/kg.
 
Separate Rate Respondents: $0.53/kg. 
(includes: Carbon Activated Tianjin Co., Ltd.; Calgon Carbon (Tianjin) Co., Ltd.; Datong Municipal Yunguang Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.; Jilin Bright Future Chemicals Company, Ltd.; Ningxia Guanghua Cherishmet Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.; Ningxia Huahui Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.; Ningxia Mineral and Chemical Limited; Shanxi DMD Corporation; Shanxi Industry Technology Trading Co., Ltd.; Shanxi Sincere Industrial Co., Ltd.; Tancarb Activated Carbon Co., Ltd.; Tianjin Channel Filters Co., Ltd.; Tianjin Maijin Industries Co., Ltd.)
 
PRC-Wide Rate: $2.42/kg.
 
These margins reflect the Commerce Department's preliminary calculations of the antidumping duty rates to be assessed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection ("CBP") for shipments by the companies identified above that entered the United States between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014.  These margins are subject to change in the final determination, which will not be issued until September 2015, and can be extended until November 2015.
 
David A. Hartquist, lead counsel to the domestic industry said, "The antidumping order continues to be effective in ensuring fair competition with imports of activated carbon from China."  Mr. Hartquist added, "We will continue our efforts to ensure the effectiveness of the antidumping order, including aggressive efforts to thwart various evasion schemes."
 
The petitioners in this case are Calgon Carbon Corporation and Cabot Norit Americas Inc.  They are represented in this investigation by David A. Hartquist, Alan Luberda, and John Herrmann of Kelley Drye & Warren LLP.
