CBH Kwinana Fertiliser Project

Closed 18 Oct 2020

Opened 12 Oct 2020

Overview

Co-operative Bulk Handling Ltd (CBH) propose to develop a facility for the import and storage of dry (granular) and liquid urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) fertiliser products.

The proposal consists of onshore and offshore components and is located adjacent and within the existing Rockingham Industrial Zone (RIZ). The offshore component will extend into the southern Cockburn Sound.

The proposal involves the construction of a dedicated liquid (UAN) pipeline that will follow the alignment of the existing CBH Grain Terminal jetty, crossing the shoreline, and proceeding underground to the proposed onshore facility. The proposed onshore facility will comprise of three liquid UAN storage tanks (48 000 T capacity), a dry fertiliser storage shed, water management infrastructure including swales and an evaporation pond, hardstand areas including access roads, truck washdown bays, a site office and amenities, and weighbridges.

Up to 5.2 ha of native vegetation located within the RIZ area will be cleared to construct the proposed onshore facility.

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.
