Antidumping Petitions Filed on Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide From China & Australia/ITC Votes to Continue AD & CVD Cases on Off-Road Tires from China

Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide

On August 22, 2007, Tronox LLC filed antidumping petitions with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and Department of Commerce on (DOC) Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide from Australia and China. Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide is commonly used in the manufacture of dry-cell alkaline batteries.

These antidumping petitions are a partial repeat of previous antidumping cases filed four years ago. Tronox LLC, which was formerly known as Kerr-McGee Chemical LLC, filed antidumping petitions on Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide from Australia, China, Greece, Ireland, Japan and South Africa in mid-2003. In the preliminary injury investigation, the ITC found no material injury existed by reason of imports of Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide from China. In March 2004, Kerr-McGee notified the ITC and DOC that it was withdrawing its antidumping petition on the remaining countries. As a result, the antidumping duty investigations were terminated.

Off-the-Road Tires From China

Separately, on August 20, 2007, the ITC determined that there is a reasonable indication that an industry in the U.S. is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of certain off-the-road tires from China that are allegedly subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value. All six Commissioners voted in the affirmative.

As a result of the ITC's affirmative injury determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue to conduct its antidumping and countervailing investigations of imports of certain off-the-road tires from China.

The antidumping and countervailing petitions in this case were filed Titan International Inc. and the United Steelworkers union.
