EA-1642S: Final Supplemental Environmental Assessment

Small-Scale Pilot Plant for the Gasification of Coal and Coal-Biomass Blends and Conversion of Derived Syngas to Liquid Fuels via Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis, Lexington, Kentucky

DOE prepared this Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) to the 2009 EA/FONSI and 2010 Supplemental Analysis for the Design and Construction of an Early Lead Mini Fischer-Tropsch Refinery at the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research, near Lexington, Kentucky (DOE/EA-1642) to assess the potential for impacts to the human and natural environment of its proposed action of providing financial assistance to the UK CAER under a cooperative agreement. An SEA was necessary due to the updated project design, which resulted in changes to the upstream gasification and acid gas cleanup components of the facility.
