OAAA v. Araucaria Energy SA.

Jurisdiction: Federal Court of Mercedes


Side A: Organización de Ambientalistas Autoconvocados (Ngo)


Side B: Araucaria Energy SA (Corporation)


Core objectives:

Plaintiffs sought to block thermoelectric plant


Summary
In July 2018, an environmental group brought a preventive action against the thermoelectric power station Lujan II, located in the Argentinian city of Luján. The petition seeks to block the plant on the ground that the environmental assessment of the plant was flawed, and the plant is inconsistent with international climate agreements such as the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement because it will use fossil fuels. The complaint also relies on Argentina's civil code, Constitution and General Law of the Environment, as well as a number of international human rights treaties.
