Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Section 15301, 15306
Reasons for Exemption
This PIER contract is exempt for two reasons. First, under Sec. 15301, the project will only esult in the minor alteration of an existing gas turbine and will not expand its use. The project will develop a new duct burner, and the burner will be field tested on an existing gas turbine. Secondly, under Sec. 15306, this contract is for basic data collection, research, experimental management, and resource evaluation activities that do not result in major disturbances to an environmental resource. The purpose of the field demonstration is to test and collect data on the burner being developed under this project. Because the new duct burner will make the gas turbine on which it is installed more efficient and less polluting, there should be an improvement, and not a disturbance, to the environment.
