Permit of TPP Stanari to be reviewed after legislative amendment in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Environment
15 July 2015

An amendment to the Rulebook on measures to prevent and reduce air pollution and improve air quality entered into force in Republika Srpska, one of two entities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, on 4 July 2015. The amendment of the Rulebook constitutes a significant step towards transposing the requirements of the Large Combustion Plants Directive (2001/80/EC). Negotiations between the Secretariat and the Republika Srpska authorities on thermal power plant Stanari, a plant with a rated thermal input of 780 MW currently under construction in Republika Srpska, contributed to accelerating the legislative process.
