Document Description
The project will fund a feasibility study to determine whether the ponds and wetlands at the Stockton Regional Wastewater Control Facility (SRWCF) can be economically modified to grow algal species that are capable of yielding a sufficient quantity of lipids to be converted into biodiesel. The project benefits the SRWCF by determining how to reduce maintenance costs and improve water quality, and it benefits the public promoting alternative biodiesel feedstock that will reduce green house gas emissions and enhance energy efficiency and renewable power generation at lower costs.

Reasons for Exemption
Categorical Exemption: 15306 The proposed project is a feasibility study, consisting of collecting and testing two 1-liter samples of algal biomass from the SRWCF to determine whether it can be converted into biodiesel, strategizing how to grow the potential feedstock, and analyzing capital improvements to the SRWCF to maximize the potential algae growth for biodiesel production. The only products are feasibility reports and information. This study will therefore have no significant impact on the environment.
