Dear M. Mustafa Kocabal,

Thank you for your message referring to the waste collection facility located in çamburnu, Turkey.

Please be informed that the European Environment Agency has no mandate for providing legal or technical assistance for complaints and no powers of investigation related to the concerns you raise in your message.

Under the Treaty establishing the European Community, the European Commission is responsible for ensuring that Community law is correctly applied. Anyone may lodge a complaint with the Commission against a Member State about any measure, which is considered to be incompatible with Community law. To be admissible a complaint has to relate to an infringement of Community law by a Member State.

Turkey is an EU candidate country, and not an EU Member State. Prior to the date of accession, Turkey is not yet bound by the acquis. The Commission can, thus, not launch infringement proceedings against Turkey.

The Commission may however, follow up on matters where there appears to be an incoherence with commitments made during accession negotiations, or on more general actions that are not compatible with the status of a candidate country.

Hence, I return your dossier in order that you may forward it to the Directorate General for the Environment of the European Commission in charge of these matters. The address of the relevant Directorate is the following:

Mr. Aurel Ciobanu-Dordea
Director "Implementation, Governance and Semester"
DG Environment
European Commission
200 rue de la Loi
BE-1049 Bruxelles

I hope this information may be useful to you.

Kind regards,

Contact the owners of the waste plant and send them to Powerhouse Energy Group PLC, a UK, company with technology capable of energy recovery from waste without incineration. The DMG, system can also supply energy from heat recovery to supply local homes with hot water and heating.
