[Docket 20-95]

Foreign-Trade Zone 70--Detroit, Michigan Application for

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Greater Detroit Foreign Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of
Foreign-Trade Zone 70, requesting authority to expand its zone in the
Detroit, Michigan area, within the Detroit, Michigan, Customs port of
entry. 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
May 4, 1995.
    FTZ 70 was approved on July 21, 1981 (Board Order 176, 46 FR 38941)
and expanded on November 27, 1989 (Board Order 453, 54 FR 50258) and
April 20, 1990 (Board Order 471, 55 FR 17775). The general-purpose zone
currently consists of eleven sites and seventeen special-purpose
subzones in the Detroit, Michigan area.
    The applicant is now requesting authority to further expand the
general-purpose zone to include jet fuel storage and distribution
facilities at the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport.
[[Page 25887]] The facilities (49 acres) include the airport fuel farm
and related fuel delivery systems (5 acres); an off-airport bulk
storage facility (44 acres, 8503 S. Inkster Rd., Taylor, MI); and
connecting pipelines.
    The system is operated by Northwest Airlines, Inc., which plans to
make the foreign-trade zone status jet fuel available to all carriers
operating international flights at the airport.
    No specific manufacturing requests are being made at this time.
Such requests would be made to the Board on a case-by-case basis.
    In accordance with the Board's regulations, a member of the FTZ
Staff has been designated examiner to investigate the application and
report to the Board.
    Public comment on the application is invited from interested
parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the
Board's Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period
for their receipt is July 14, 1995. Rebuttal comments in response to
