Unsolicited Letter: Registration Request Aguan biogas recovery from Palm Oil Mill Effluent Project 3197, Honduras

On behalf of Biofuel WatchSalva la Selva/Rettet den Regenwald and CDM Watch sent a letter to the EB to express our serious concerns about the proposed CDM project involving Exportadora del Atlántico in Bajo Aguan in Honduras.

Registration has been requested following a validation report by TUV Sued which recommends approval. Deadline for requesting review was 5 January 2011. Our concerns relate to human rights abuses involving the company in question as well as serious questions regarding their claim to the land on which the oil palm plantations are located, and thus to the requirement for CDM projects to support ‘sustainable development’ and, furthermore, to additionality.
