NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project will fund the replacement of petroleum fuel in an existing, above-ground tank with biodiesel fuel and associated infrastructure, including a new meter and pump for fueling, and new pipelines connecting the tank to the meter. This will allow tanker trucks using the existing fueling facility to load both petroleum fuel and biodiesel for local distribution, rather than seek biodiesel at a separate and more distant location. The project benefits the public by reducing greenhouse gas emission associated with truck travel otherwise necessary to acquire and distribute biodiesel, promoting the use of alternative and renewable fuels, and reducing reliance on petroleum fuels.
