EPA approval is required due to industrial and waste management works that may result in: discharge of waste into the environment (air, water or land); an increase in, or alteration to, an existing discharge; or a change in the way waste is treated or stored.
In its application to the EPA, the business said: “Our works approval process is designed to ensure the best and most cost-effective environmental outcomes on projects are achieved. Without works approvals, there is an increased risk of industrial projects causing pollution and requiring expensive retrofitting. Works approvals are an opportunity to save energy and water, and to reduce waste at the project design stage, creating value for a business.”
