Foskor MES Postponement

Short Project Title: Foskor MES Postponement
Project Title: Foskor MES Postponement
Project Synopsis: Foskor (Pty) Ltd – Richards Bay Division, operates under an Atmospheric Emissions Licence in terms of the National Environmental Management: Air Quality Act 39 of 2004 (NEM:AQA). This requires the plant to meet the Minimum Emission Standards (MES) identified in terms of Section 21 of the NEM:AQA , which new plants have to comply with from 1 April 2020.

All Foskor processes comply with the 2015 MES for existing plants. Many of the processes at the facility will also comply with the MES for new plants by 1 April 2020, however there are some processes that will not be able to comply by 2020. As such, Foskor is applying for postponement of the 2020 (new plant) compliance timeframes.
SRK Consulting South Africa (Pty) Ltd (SRK) has been appointed to undertake the public participation process relating to this application.
