Lynas broke law by storing huge amount of scheduled wastes, claims Semambu assemblyman

He said that as of December 2018, Lynas had collected 1.13 million tonnes of Neutralisation Underflow Residue (NUF) wastes in the six years it has been operating in Gebeng near here, with the wastes kept at the side of the plant. “If we go according to Regulation 4: Disposal of Scheduled Wastes under the Environmental Quality (Scheduled Wastes) Regulations 2005, the maximum amount of scheduled wastes that can be collected at the site is 20 tonnes for up to 180 days,” he said.
