Document Description
The proposed Canergy Rockwood Project includes two components: 1) a cellulosic biofuel ethanol/chemical manufacturing facility; and, 2) 12,500 acres of energy cane crops to be grown in the Imperial Valley. The proposed project involves a Conditional Use Permit that will allow for the construction and operation of a cellulosic biofuel ethanol/chemical manufacturing facility on an 83.17-acre site in an unincorporated area of Imperial County. The operation will generate up to 36 million gallons per year (MGY) of fuel-grade ethanol, up to 485,000 tons of lignin per year, and up to 132,000 tons of liquid carbon dioxide. Canergy LLC (i.e. the Applicant) has submitted a Minor Subdivision (Parcel Map) Application to combine the four M-2-N parcels, as well as create a parcel for an electrical substation, which will likely be owned by IID. A Variance Application (to allow the structural heights in excess of currently allowable limits) has also been submitted to the County. The proposed project site is located at 206 East Rutherford Road, Brawley, CA 92227 (APN 037-070-004) approximately 3.5 miles north of Brawley, 4 miles south of Calipatria, approximately 0.5 miles east of SR 111, and directly west of the UPRR rail line. The property address is 206 East Rutherford Road, Brawley, CA 92227 (APN 037-070-004). The project area includes four parcels (APNs 037-070-002, -003, -016, -004) totaling 83.17 acres.
