EA-1867: Finding of No Significant Impact

RTI International Scale-Up of High-Temperature Syngas Cleanup and Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies, Polk County, Florida (October 2011)

DOE completed the Final Environmental Assessment for RTf .International ScaleUp of High-Temperature Syngas Cleanup and Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technologies (EA-1867). Based on the analyses in the environmental assessment (EA), DOE determined that its proposed action-providing cost-shared funding to RTI International (RTI) to demonstrate the precommercial scale-up of its high-temperature syngas cleanup and carbon capture and sequestration technologies-would result in no significant adverse impacts. DOE further determined that RTI 's proposed project would have potential beneficial impacts in advancing the commercial deployment of cost-effective, environmentally sound teclmology options that reduce constraints associated with using domestic energy resources and may ultimately assist in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) levels. In addition, beneficial local socioeconomic impacts would occur from increased employment opportunities and expenditures in the project area.
