The South Australia Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) has granted Penrice Soda a 10-year operating licence for its Osborne plant. Penrice Soda supplies 77% of the Australian market. The 10-year licence sets a new standard for EPA in its approach to managing difficult issues, said EPA chairman Paul Vogel. “Penrice has embraced the opportunity to work towards a clear target and its latest Environment Improvement Program reflects a continuing commitment to reduce the discharge of ammonia to the Port River,” Dr Vogel said.
