Ammonia Plant, Murujuga (Burrup Peninsula), Renewable Hydrogen Project

Closed 14 Aug 2020

Opened 7 Aug 2020

Overview

Yara Pilbara Fertilisers Pty Ltd propose to modify the existing Pilbara Fertiliser project to include the development of a Renewable Hydrogen Plant and associated infrastructure.  

The proposal is located approximately 11 km north-west of Karratha in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The proposal is adjacent to the National Heritage listed area and the Murujuga National Park. 

The proposal would include a total disturbance of 24.78 hectares. The proposal will result in reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and emit oxygen. 

Why We Are Consulting

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.
