Which environmental study will be required for each project?
For the environmental licensing, environmental studies are presented as allowance for the analysis of the environmental aspects of the business, whether for the construction, installation, expansion or operation.
According to the resolution CONAMA nº 237/1997, those activities or projects that cause a significant environmental degradation will be required an environmental impact study and an environmental impact report (EIA/RIMA)
If the environmental agency classifies that the business does not causes significant environmental degradation or impact, it may define other environmental studies as they judge necessary.
Environmental impact is any change in the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the environment, caused by any form of matter or energy resulted from human activities that directly or indirectly affects the health, safety and well-being of the population, the social and economic activities, biota, aesthetic and sanitary conditions of the environment and the natural resources quality and disponibility (Article 1 CONAMA resolution nº 01/1986).
Each environmental agency regulates the procedures and applicable environmental studies necessary to each business.
The potential environmental impact of the project/business is crucial to the definition of the appropriate environmental studies for each phase. The potential is related to location and technological alternatives, risk, characteristics and the nature of the activity.
