EA-1788: Finding of No Significant Impact

Sapphire Energy Inc.'s Integrated Algal Biorefinery (IABR) Facility in Columbus, New Mexico

Sapphire Energy Company proposes to construct and operated an Integrated Algal Bio-Refinery Facility to produce oil from algae, ultimately refining the oil into various types of transportation fuel. Based on the Environmental assessment (EA), the United States Department of Agriculture completed a Finding of no significant impact (FONSI), which the Department of Energy has determined to be adequate and satisfactory in describing the proposed project and the potential environmental impacts. Accordingly, DOE adopts the EA and incorporates it by reference into this FONSI.
