Ammonia Expansion Project

Closed 14 Feb 2023

Opened 8 Feb 2023


CSBP Limited proposes to construct and operate a new ammonia plant within the CSBP Kwinana Industrial Complex in the Kwinana Industrial Area (KIA), located approximately 40 km south of the Perth Central Business District. 

The proposal will use natural gas sourced from the Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline (DBNGP), integrated with hydrogen production from a 10 megawatt electrolyser manufacture ammonia, which will then be used by CSBP for the manufacture of other chemical products or sold externally to customers. 

The proposal will be a self-sustained facility with a production capacity of approximately 300,000 tonnes per annum and will be integrated with a number of existing CSBP facilities located in the KIA. 

The proposed development envelope is 27.52 hectares (ha), including the clearing up to 1 ha of native vegetation, located within the 138 ha CSBP Kwinana Industrial Complex. 

The proposal has associated scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions of up to 539,003 tonnes CO2 equivalent per annum during operations. The expected life of the project is 35 years.

Why your views matter

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The EPA's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
