The Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) has instructed Formosa Plastics Group, to conduct another environmental impact assessment report for an expansion plan of its sixth naphtha cracking plant, located in Yunlin County, as per focustaiwan.tw.
The decision came after an EPA environmental impact assessment committee ruling to turn down the company's original report, saying that it failed to meet EPA requirements. According to the EPA, the latest FPG report failed to address how the investment plan will cut air and water pollution and reduce toxic substances caused by certain petrochemical products such as butadiene.
FPG has long been planning to expand its sixth cracker plant with a total of NT$17 bln (US$554 mln) in investment, but its report on the project's possible impact on the environmental has been repeatedly rejected by the authorities. In addition, local environmental protection groups have raised concerns over the impact on the environment resulting from the new investment plan.
