    Description
    Objectives

    The project consists of the reconstruction of Minsk's largest wastewater treatment plant.

    The investment loan will finance the complete reconstruction of Minsk's central wastewater treatment plant with the objective of increasing treatment capacity and improving the quality of treated effluent. In particular, the investment is expected to help to meet current and envisaged future capacity requirements in Minsk, to reduce environmental pollution, increase energy efficiency and to ensure compliance with current effluent discharge standards.

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    The project will generally benefit the environment and public health, by providing better and more efficient waste water treatment before discharging effluents into receiving waters bodies and eventually into the Black Sea. The main objective of the project is the compliance with effluent and water quality standards as set by the EU directives and partially transposed into national law. Compliance with national Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) legislation that has been drafted by partially transposing the EU's EIA Directive will be verified during the appraisal.

    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that implementation of the project will be done in accordance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement.

    Under ELM Guarantee

    This operation is covered by the ELM Guarantee.
