Briefing | 9 November 2022
This briefing offers an overview of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development’s (EBRD) ongoing assessment of whether to grant a EUR 50 million loan in order to replace unit 3 of the Tuzla coal plant with a waste and biomass incineration system. It explains how this solution is unfeasible and will undermine the country’s climate and environmental goals. The document calls on the EBRD to halt further project development and to prioritise renewables in the district heating sector.
