EA-1719: Finding of No Significant Impact

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

DOE determined that there would be no significant adverse impacts from DOE's proposed action of awarding a grant to Novolyte Technologies, Inc. to partially fund its expansion of a plant in Zachary, Louisiana, thereby increasing the plant's capacity to manufacture lithium electrolytes. This expansion would support the anticipated growth in the lithium-ion battery industry and, more specifically, the electric drive vehicle industry and hybrid-electric vehicle industry. DOe further determined that there could be beneficial impacts to the local economy and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from implementation of Novolyte's proposed project.
