Association Agreement with the EU obliges Georgia to import chemical waste

Summary of Disinformation

The Association Agreement with the European Union obliges Georgia to import and utilize chemical waste.

There are plans to build a chemical waste utilization factory which would make living in Adjara life-threatening.


The Association Agreement signed between the European Union and Georgia in 2014 does not include import and utilization of hazardous waste.

Law on Import, Export, and Transit of Hazardous Waste prohibits import, export, and transit of any kind of waste on the territory of Georgia.

The project by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the Ministry of Finance of Adjara aims to build a household waste utilization polygon in Tsetskhlauri village near Kobuleti. The project has nothing to do with the import and utilization of the chemical waste.
