EA 1714: Final Environmental Assessment

Toda America, Incorporated Electric Drive Vehicle Battery and Component Manufacturing Initiative Project Battle Creek, MI

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) proposes, through a cooperative agreement with Toda America, Incorporated (Toda) to partially fund the construction of a manufacturing plant to produce oxide materials for cathodes for lithium-ion batteries. The plant would be constructed within an existing industrial park in Battle Creek, Michigan. This plant would support the anticipated growth in the lithium-ion battery industry and, more specifically, the electric drive vehicle (EDV) industry and hybrid-electric vehicle (HEV) industry. If approved, DOE would provide approximately 50 percent of the funding for the project.
