robert_viera Posted March 19, 2009 Report Share Posted March 19, 2009 Notice has been posted on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry that the federal environmental assessment of an ethanol plant in Collingwood, Ontario was canceled 12 on March 2 even though the plant faces charges under the provincial Environmental Protection Act. 3 The federal environmental assessment was triggered because the Collingwood Ethanol plant applied for, and apparently is receiving, $32.7-million in operating subsidies from the federal Ministry of Natural Resources under it's ecoENERGY for BioFuels program. 4 From the Notice of Commencement last July: Under section 5 of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, an environmental assessment is required in relation to this project because Natural Resources Canada may provide financial assistance to the proponent for the purpose of enabling the project. From the Notice of Cancellation: March 19, 2009 -- Natural Resources Canada has cancelled this environmental assessment on March 2, 2009 because it was determined that this project does not trigger the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. 1 Notice of Cancellation: http://www.ceaa.gc.ca/050/details-eng.cfm?CEAR_ID=40559 2 Notice of Commencement: http://www.ceaa.gc.ca/050/details-eng.cfm?...&ForceNOC=Y 3http://www.collingwoodconnection.com/colli.../article/115576 4http://www2.nrcan.gc.ca/dgc-dposc/index.cf...422&strt=31 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
