Background on Plant

In October 2020 the plant was proposed as a mine-mouth plant for the EÜAŞ coal mine in Malkara.[1] EÜAŞ is investigating the investment potential of lignite reserves in the region.[2]

There have been previous attempts at exploiting the lignite reserves in Malkara. In June 2013, The Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation proposed an environmental plan that would legalize the construction of a coal plant in the district.[3] An alliance of local advocacy groups called Trakya Platformu (The Trace Platform) challenged the plan in court. As a result, the 6th chamber of the Council of State canceled the proposed plan in 2018, citing the potential damage to Tekirdağ's underground water reserves.[4]
