Western Australian new processing facility set to accept industry waste mid-year

Sponsoring the Petroleum Club of Western Australia’s January industry breakfast, BMT’s General Manager Oceania, Karen Boyce was delighted to congratulate sporting athlete Samantha Kerr on being awarded the 2018 Young Australian of the Year.

Following her opening address, Ms Boyce advised members that BMT’s Kwinana Mercury Treatment facility was advancing well and would be ready to accept industry waste by mid-year (2018).

“As leading and proven waste treatment specialists, this is a significant milestone for Australia to meet its obligations under the Basel and Minamata Conventions and is reinforced by the UN Secretariat accepting BMT as industry experts on Mercury Waste,” Ms Boyce told the audience.

“The planned Kwinana facility will use BMT’s proven technology and is the first of our global expansion into the Australian market.

“It will provide oil and gas operators with a safe option to remove, dispose and stabilise mercury.”
