Finding of No Significant Impact

A food contact notification (FCN No. 1028), submitted by Akzo Nobel Surface Chemistry, AB, to provide for the safe use of isopropanol as a component of flotation aid formulations used in the purification of calcium carbonate from raw calcite ore.

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 information, submitted by the notifier, in an environmental assessment, dated November 19, 2010, and other information known to the agency.
