Semiconductor RDI and manufacturing facilities are not specifically covered by Annexes I & II of the Directive 2011/92/EU as amended, and therefore not subject to mandatory environmental impact assessment (EIA). The proposed investments will take place mainly inside buildings at RDI and manufacturing facilities already being used for similar activities and are not expected to have a significant environmental impact on the surroundings.
The promoter has been assessed by the EIB as being a private company not being subject to EU rules on public procurement or concessions.
