8 NEPA Questions and / or Concerns Q: When do I have to complete a DOE NEPA EF-1? A: The PI must complete a NEPA EF-1 when they: 1. Join the Feedstock Partnership field trials 2. Have a change in their field trial scope 3. ASAP Q: Do I have to submit a new NEPA each year of my trial? A: If your trial received a previous NEPA determination, this determination will hold for the remainder of the project unless there is a change in scope. Q: What should I do if I am encountering difficulties completing my on- line DOE NEPA EF-1 form? A: Feel free to contact your GFO project monitor or project officer, and they will help you through the process.

9 NEPA Questions and / or Concerns Things to bear in mind about NEPA and field trials 1.GMOs – a.De-regulated, commercial varieties of corn, wheat or alfalfa – OK b.Anything else (including switchgrass, energycane, sorghum, miscanthus, poplars & willows) – NO 2. Invasive species - consult with your State Department of Agriculture 3. Chemicals (fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide) “Standard agricultural management practices” 4. Employ positive statements; leave no doubt (e.g. “No radiological materials will be created or used on this project”) 5. Check your GPS coordinates (our NEPA people will)
