Background on Plant

News of the proposed plant first became public in March 2020 with the announcement of a pending Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) decision, and announcement of a ten-day period for public review of the EIA.[1] In June 2020 the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization announced that the plant had been cancelled.[2]


The plant was opposed by the mayor of Tavas and numerous environmental groups. An estimated 50,000 olive trees would be cut down in order to build the plant.[3]
