FAQ – Government Approval Process

Has the State Government approved the Biomass Project?

The Manjimup Biomass Project received approval from the WA Environmental Protection Authority in 2009. This approval was extended in 2012 for a further three years.

What community consultation has occurred?

There was extensive community consultation undertaken during the environmental approval process, including community meetings, printed material, and opportunities to raise concerns and make submissions. WAB is committed to establishing a Community Reference Group which will have community representatives and interested parties. This will be established prior to construction in the second half of 2014.
