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. In June 2020 the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization announced that the plant had been cancelled.
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.
