EIS-0357: DOE Notice of Availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement and Notice of Public Hearings

Gilberton Coal-to-Clean Fuels and Power Project

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announces the availability of the document, Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Gilberton Coal to-Clean Fuels and Power Project (DOE/EIS–0357), for public comment. The draft environmental impact statement (EIS) analyzes the potential environmental consequences of providing federal funding for the design, engineering, construction, and operation of the first power facility in the United States to use coal waste as feed to a gasification facility that subsequently generates fuel gas for clean power, thermal energy, and clean liquid fuels production. The project would be constructed at an existing power plant site in Gilberton, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania.
