   Foreign-Trade Subzone 15D Mobay Chemical Plant, Kansas City, Mo; 
Determination of Scope of Manufacturing 
 
TEXT: A request has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) by the Greater Kansas City Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee of FTZ 
15 and Subzone 15D, at the agricultural chemical manufacturing plant of 
Mobay Corporation, Kansas City, Missouri, to determine whether certain 
proposed manufacturing activity is within the scope of manufacturing 
authority already approved by the Board. 
 
   On September 11, 1989, the Board authorized FTZ Subzone 15D at the Mobay 
plant (Board Order 440, 54 FR 38413). Authority was granted for the 
manufacture of pesticides (e.g., insecticides, herbicides and fungicides) 
(duty rates: 3.5-20%) utilizing foreign materials such as cyanuric chloride,
benzenethial, surface agents, nitrogeneous compounds, ketones, nitriles and 
halogenated, sulfonated and nitrated derivatives of aldehydes (duty rates: 
7.9-12.5%).  
 
   The original application listed a number of finished pesticide products 
which Mobay planned to produce under zone procedures. Mobay has informed 
the Board that it now plans to produce several additional related finished 
pesticide products for animal health applications (duty rates: 3.4-7.9%) 
that were not specifically listed in the original application. 
 
   The request under review also indicates that the company plans to use 
new, but related, foreign materials such as heterocyclic compounds with 
oxygen, polycarboxylic acids and related products, and esters of inorganic 
acids and related products (duty rates: 3.1-20.0%), in its production of 
pesticides.  
 
   It appears that the proposed activity is within the range of activity 
reviewed in the original application and authorized by Board Order 440, but
the FTZ Staff invites the comments of interested parties for consideration 
in its review. 
 
   Comments must be submitted by December 10, 1990. They shall be addressed 
as follows. 
 
   A copy of the request is available for public inspection at:
