EA-1715: Finding of No Significant Impact

Chemetall Foote Corporation, Electric Drive Vehicle Battery and Component Manufacturing Initiative, Kings Mountain, North Carolina and Silver Peak, Nevada

The U.S. Department of Energy proposes, through a cooperative agreement with Chemetall Foote Corporation (Chemetall) to partially fund: (1) the establishment of a new 5,000 metric ton per year lithium hydroxide plant at an existing Chemetall facility in Kings Mountain, North Carolina; and (2) the refurbishment and expansion of an existing lithium brine production facility and lithium carbonate plant in Silver Peak, Nevada. DOE determined that there would be no significant adverse impacts associated with its proposed action.
