    • Both Lynas' sites have been operating safely for 5 years.
    • Both Lynas' sites have been recertified, in 2017, to ISO14001 (Environmental Management).
    • There has been no increase in background radiation at independently measured sites 1km, 5km, 10km or 20km from the LAMP (Lynas Advanced Materials Plant) in Kuantan.
    • The IAEA (International Atomic Energy Authority) rates the LAMP operations as "intrinsically low risk".
    • We have installed industry-leading systems at both sites to minimise impact on the environment via:
      • water management systems in Mt. Weld, Western Australia
      • waste gas emission systems and water management systems at the LAMP
    • In 2017, LAMP operations have successfully met all of our environmental management commitments relating to water, waste, noise, and air quality management.
    • The LAMP monitoring results are publicly available on the Lynas website and the websites of the AELB and the DOE.

Priorities for 2018:

    • Continue to operate in accordance with the strict environmental management requirements enforced in Australia and Malaysia by the relevant Government authorities.
    • Undertake regular independent monitoring to assess what impact, if any, our operations are having on the environment.
    • Continue to monitor and manage our water resources at Mt Weld
