Parbeszed calls for suspension of Samsung battery plant operations

The opposition Parbeszed-Greens has called for the suspension of operations of the Samsung SDI battery plant in God, near Budapest, until the plant receives legal permits.

The plant has operated for five years without the proper legal permits, Benedek Javor, a party adviser, told an online press briefing on Friday. The plant, he added, had been polluting the environment and exceeding harmful emission limits, and the authorities had fined the company.

Also, he said Samsung SDI failed to operate a proper network of monitoring wells for the assessment of underground water pollution and noise levels produced by the factory exceeded acceptable limits.
