The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering issuing a license termination of Material License No. 21-24836-01 issued to Michigan Biotechnology Institute (the licensee), to authorize release of its Lansing facility for unrestricted use.
The NRC staff has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this amendment in accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR part 51. Based on the EA, the NRC has concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is appropriate. The amendment will be issued following the publication of this Notice.
II. EA Summary
The purpose of the proposed action is to terminate Byproduct Material License No. 21-24836-01 issued to Michigan Biotechnology Institute, and release its Lansing, Michigan facility for unrestricted use. The NRC's license authorized the licensee to use labeled compounds such as hydrogen-3, carbon-14, phosphorus-32, sulfur-35, etc. for research and development. On March 7, 2006, the licensee submitted a license termination request to release its Lansing facility for unrestricted use. The licensee has conducted surveys of the facility and provided information to the NRC to demonstrate that the site meets Start Printed Page 48561the license termination criteria in 10 CFR 20.1402, “Radiological Criteria for Unrestricted Use.”
The staff has examined the licensee's request and the information provided in support of its request, including the surveys performed to demonstrate compliance with the release criteria. The staff has found that the radiological environmental impacts from the proposed action are bounded by the impacts evaluated in the “Generic Environmental Impact Statement in Support of Rulemaking on Radiological Criteria for License Termination of NRC-Licensed Facilities” (NUREG-1496). Additionally, no non-radiological or cumulative impacts were identified. Based on its review, the staff has determined that there are no additional remediation activities necessary to complete the proposed action and a Finding of No Significant Impact is appropriate.
III. Finding of No Significant Impact
On the basis of the EA, the NRC concluded that there are no significant environmental impacts from the proposed amendment and determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement.
