Cockburn ordered to install new pollution control equipment
Published: 17 May 2011

Australian cement producer, Cockburn Cement, will be required to install new pollution control equipment to reduce dust emissions from its Munster plant under tough new licence conditions imposed by the State Government.

The new conditions, handed down today by Environment Minister Bill Marmion, come after months of growing discord among residents of Cockburn, who say they have been plagued by dust and odour emissions from the plant.



The conditions include the installation of pollution control kilns 5 and 6 and the risk of fines if CCL exceeds pollution guidelines.
