DK: 'Dangerous' New Battery Plant Being Built in C Hungary
A new “dangerous” battery plant is being built south of Budapest, an opposition Democratic Coalition politician said.

DK wants the building of all battery plants to be suspended immediately and existing plants to be inspected by independent experts to assess risks and occupational safety, Olivio Kocsis-Cake, DK’s shadow environment minister, told an online press briefing.

Referring to the new plant in Iváncsa, he said such plants were popping up “overnight” all over the country.

Further, the plant will also house a battery testing facility whose purpose is to put batteries under multiple kinds of physical duress, thereby exposing the environment to contamination.

He said local residents must be told of the dangers of plants under construction and their approval sought.
