New Zealand Pyrolysis Plant Gets Green Light

A new pyrolysis plant to process tyres has been given the go-ahead for Burnham in New Zealand. The plant will be operated by Eneform Ltd. However, the bond required by the local council has not yet been agreed.

The bond raised concerns around the district council table, in spite of councillors being supportive of the project.

As a result, the district council amended its motion to approve the lease of land subject to an appropriate bond being secured.

Other conditions included appropriate regulatory consents being contained and comprehensive risk, health and safety measures put in place.

Construction of the plant is planned to begin in the second half of this year.
