IFC is partnering with Ventus Engineering, S.A. (“Co-Developer”), to jointly explore the development of a silicon production plant in Uruguay, using renewable raw materials and energy. The production plant would allow for the production of green silicon, with significantly lower carbon emissions per unit of silicon produced than using conventional production technology which utilizes coal and fossil-based energy sources. This first engagement serves to assess the availability of raw materials for the production, and the sustainability of their procurement, from an environmental, social, and economic perspective. In addition, IFC and Co-Developer jointly seek to identify a strategic partner to join the subsequent phases of project development and ultimately start operations.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
