弗吉尼亚州能源项目CEPAS C&D废物生物量项目 （弗吉尼亚里士满）无重大影响FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT FOR THE VIRGINIA STATE ENER
SUMMARY: DOE completed the Final Environmental Assessment for Virginia State Energy Program's Cephas C&D Wastes Biomass Project, Richmond, VA (DOE/EA-1767). Based on the analyses in the Environmental Assessment (EA), DOE determined that its proposed action allowing Virginia to use some of its State Energy Program (SEP) funds, as a grant, to assist in the funding of the Cephas biomass project, would result in no significant adverse impacts. DOE further determined that there could be beneficial impacts as the proposed facility would manufacture biomass to provide local industries with an alternative energy source that, when consumed, would result in less environmental impact by releasing lower concentrations of greenhouse gasses. Furthermore, recycled construction and demolition (C&D) debris would be sold as a commodity to recycling facilities thereby stuengthening the market for recycled materials. In addition, beneficial local socioeconomic impacts would occur from increased employment opportunities and spending in the affected communities.
