On December 3, 2009, the Federated States of Micronesia requested the Czech Republic, in accordance with § 11(1)(b) of the Act on Environmental Impact Assessment, to initiate a Transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) proceeding for its plans to modernize and extend operations of the Prunerov II coal-fired power plant. Micronesia asserted that it has reasonable grounds to believe that its territory will be affected by the continued operation of the power plant.
The Ministry for Environment had since issued a permit for the power plant.
