According to the Bank's website, this project finances the construction and operation of an integrated propane dehydrogenation unit (PDH) and polypropylene unit (PP) to manufacture propylene and polypropylene. The facilities will be located in the town of Police, adjacent to the existing facilities of GA Police and will have access to its utilities and infrastructure.
The site is away from residential areas and will not be associated with resettlement of livelihood loss. The new plant is not located in protected areas, however, the shipping canal is within a Natura 2000 area, and a number of Natura 2000 areas are located nearby.
Additional technical cooperation is being considered as part of the project. This would entail the following: (i) increasing awareness of the implications of climate change for the borrower; and (ii) assessing and reviewing the climate related reporting procedures of the borrower.
The borrower is a subsidiary of Grupa Azoty and GA Police established to implement an integrated petrochemical complex consisting of propylene (based on propane dehydrogenation/PDH technology) and polypropylene production facilities.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EBRD
The Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the PCM, it may assess compliance with EBRD's own policies and procedures to prevent harm to the environment or communities or it may assist you in resolving the problem that led to the complaint through a dialogue with those implementing the project. Additionally, the PCM has the authority to recommend a project be suspended in the event that harm is imminent. You can contact the PCM at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can submit a complaint online using an online form, http://www.ebrd.com/eform/pcm/complaint_form?language=en. You can learn more about the PCM and how to file a complaint at http://www.ebrd.com/work-with-us/project-finance/project-complaint-mechanism.html.
