EA-1719: Final Environmental Assessment

Novolyte Technologies, Inc. Electric Drive Vehicle Battery and Component Manufacturing Initiative Project Zachary, LA

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) proposes, through a cooperative agreement with Novolyte Technologies, Incorporated (Novolyte), to partially fund the expansion of Novolyte’s current operations in Zachary, Louisiana, to increase capacity and utilization of its existing electrolytes production facility. This facility 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.
