Finding of No Significant Impact

A Premarket Notification (FCN No. 000052), submitted by Chr. Hansen A/S, for a high density agarose resin that is cross-linked and alkylated with epichlorohydrin followed by chemical binding of the ligand benzylamine for repeat use in the form of beads as an adsorbent in a chromatographic process intended for the isolation and purification of food enzymes.

 

 

The Environmental Review Team has determined that allowing this notification to become effective will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment and therefore will not require the preparation of an environmental impact statement. This finding is based on an environmental assessment, dated March 21, 2000 B revised April 4, 2000, that was prepared by the notifier.
