RE: The tariff classification of granulated straw from Germany; pulp; cellulose; absorbent.

Dear Mr. Charles:

In your letter dated September 22, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

A sample was submitted and will be retained for reference. It is a brown, dry, fibrous material which looks like an irregular blend of coarse powder and small flakes. It is said to consist of natural straw which has been subjected to a six-stage granulation process during which nothing else has been added. The granulated straw is intended to be used as a "liquid absorbent."

The applicable subheading for the granulated straw will be 4706.91.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for mechanical pulps of other (non-enumerated) fibrous cellulosic material. The rate of duty will be free.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Carl Abramowitz at (212) 466-5733.
