Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301, 15306
Reasons for Exemption
The project consists of installation of a waste heat to power system in an existing manufacturing facility. The skid mounted system will utilize existing waste heat at the facility to generate electricity. This installation is a minor alteration to the existing facility which involves negligible expansion of use. The project involves collection of data for research and evaluation purposes. Data will be collected to evaluate various performance parameters of the newly developed system. It will not result in a serious disturbance to an environmental resource.
