GFG Focusing on Environmental Impacts

whyalla_generic.JPGAs a part of the Whyalla Transformation Plan GFG Alliance will be focusing on environmental improvements, including identifying dust sources and actioning a 12-month plan.

Previous sources of dust are now clearer however potential areas of fugitive dust are being managed and minimised.

The new plant as a part of the expanded steelworks will be installed with the highest standard of environmental controls. 

Last year the Pelletising plant shut down to improve the performance and to reduce dust emissions on site.

GFG Alliance say they are very excited about the future of Whyalla, with the great potential associated with its proposed expansion plans.

Operations have significantly reduced fugitive dust levels since the implementation of Project Magnet in 2008.

GFG Alliance has measured an increased amount of dust being experienced in the community over the past year and spoken to a number of residents concerned about a trend in black‐coloured dust.
