Karabiga Cenal Power Station

[ELAW seeks a copy of this court decision.]

News articles report a company proposing to construct a coal-fired power plant near Karabiga, Turkey, attempted to disguise the severe environmental and cumulative impacts of the proposed project by preparing four separate EIAs, rather than a single EIA.  Each of these EIAs was approved by environmental officials; however, a Turkish administrative court rejected this approach and declared that the project proponent must prepare one EIA disclosing all of the impacts of the coal-fired power plant in its entirety.
