Quality review of the EIA for the Porto Romano thermal power plant
Study | 20 March 2009
This independent quality review of the Environmental Impact Assessment study highlights more than 25 shortcomings in the assessment, including the studys failure to:
- consider alternative energy scenarios to coal power;
- analyse properly the carbon dioxide emissions;
- assess the socio-economic impacts of the project and provide for management and monitoring plans.
Based on this quality review as well as the opposition from the local communities the Municipality of Durres declared itself officially against the project in April 2009.
