Background on Plant

Anadolu Enerji has proposed a 4 x 300 MW coal plant in Afşin-Elbistan.[1]

The original EIA for the project was withdrawn by Anadolu Enerji in 2015, due to mass local community resistance. While opponents argued the EIA should be cancelled altogether, the project's sponsor submitted a new EIA in December 2017. At the evaluation and assessment meeting held in January 2018 as well as non-government objections the State Water Works continued to object to the dewatering of the region and the obstruction of irrigated agriculture. The company was given a year to resubmit the EIA.[2]

In June 2019 the EIA process was restarted.[3]
