Cement companies issued prohibition notices
March 23, 2021 4:48 pm
Prohibition notices have been issued to Tengy Cement and Pacific Cement Limited by the Environment Ministry.
Permanent Secretary for Environment, Joshua Wycliffe, says this was done following concerns by Lami residents about the two companies failing to comply with environmental requirements.
Wycliffe says the suspected issue is that the dust being emitted from the factories does not meet the standards.
“We have our surveillance teams. Upon noticing emissions we send specific teams and they did two surveillance rounds. They came back with reports of emissions”.
The two companies in the previous years have been issued notices for various reasons.
He adds the department will not do anything outside the law.
