After three weeks, the presentation of new objections to the Tesla factory in Grünheide near Berlin comes to an end.

The criticism should flow into the decision on the approval for the work.

Grünheide - The schedule for the decision on the green light for Europe's first Tesla factory in Brandenburg is still open. The three-week discussion on the Internet of over 800 objections against the electric car manufacturer ends on Thursday at midnight. From Friday, the authorities will investigate whether new findings and tests would result, as the spokeswoman for the Ministry of the Environment, Frauke Zelt, announced on Thursday. How much time this will take is still open. According to the ministry, there have been around 29,400 hits on the site since September 27.

Tesla boss Elon Musk said at an open house last Saturday in Grünheide that he wanted to start producing electric cars there by December at the latest.

Critics fear problems with drinking water and with the habitat of plants and animals.

Tesla had rejected the criticism.

The company also wants to mass-produce batteries there itself.

Direct flight providers are scrambling for lucrative markets

VW CEO Herbert Diess swore his top management circles to increasingly tough competition with Tesla. The Wolfsburg headquarters must also become “more efficient, faster,” said the chairman of the board at an internal conference in Alpbach, Austria, according to a group of participants. He confirmed that this would initially have no direct consequences for the bodies.

Because the final approval for the factory is missing, Tesla has so far been building it with provisional approvals. The new online discussion was necessary, among other things, because of the planned battery factory. Critics warn that with car and battery factories, drinking water could become scarce, animals would be harmed, the handling of incidents would not be sustainable, and criticize that passages in the application would be blacked out. The objections were posted on the net with statements from the authorities based on factual issues. The critics were able to comment on this again.

The Strausberg-Erkner water association sees the planned battery factory as being dangerous for drinking water.

"Our concern is that in the event of incidents, especially in the planned battery factory, contamination of the groundwater cannot be ruled out," said association chief André Bähler to the "Handelsblatt".

"The consequences for the protected drinking water would be inconceivable." Bähler demanded that the dangers be assessed in an expert opinion.

The association had warned against too little drinking water last year.
