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.
