EIS-0394: Draft Environmental Impact Statement

FutureGen Project

The EIS provides information about the potential environmental impacts of the DOE's proposal to provide federal funding to FutureGen Alliance, Inc. for the FutureGen Project. The project would include the planning, design, construction, and operation by the Alliance of a coal-fueled electric power and hydrogen gas production plant integrated with carbon dioxide capture and geologic sequestration of the captured gas. Four sites have been identified as reasonable alternatives and are considered in the EIS: 1) Mattoon Illinois; 2) Tuscola, Illinois; 3) Jewett, Texas; and 4) Odessa, Texas.
