Lubmin (dpa/mv) - According to the Federal Government for the Environment and Nature Conservation Germany (BUND), the terminal for liquefied natural gas (LNG) being built in Lubmin cannot currently be approved. The investigations presented were not sufficient to rule out damage to the bird sanctuary and herring spawning area of Greifswalder Bodden, the Northeast State Association said on Tuesday.
The BUND also sees risks for industrial plants such as the nuclear interim storage facility in Lubmin due to the risk of explosion. The Schwerin Environment Minister Till Backhaus (SPD), on the other hand, declared at the end of October that the interim storage facility was far enough away.
As part of the approval process by the responsible state authority, the deadline for submitting objections expired on Monday. Originally, the company Deutsche Regas had given December 1st - that is Thursday - as the target start date for the terminal, but has now indicated delays.
