A new factory is about to be built in Perth, Australia, and there’s a lot to consider.
The $9 billion facility is expected to create more than 4,000 new jobs and add about 20,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.
The construction is being funded by the Australian Government through the National Manufacturing Strategy (NMS).
Here’s what you need to know about the facility.
What will the new plant be used for?
The facility will be used to manufacture equipment for industrial applications, and the plant will employ up to 4,500 people.
What are the benefits of the new facility?
Australia has had a lot of success with climate change mitigation.
The Australian Capital Territory, for example, is the only state in the world that has a net-zero emissions plan, meaning the greenhouse gas emissions that go into making a product or process can’t go into a landfill.
In the NMS, the plant is also expected to help improve the quality of Australian manufacturing, as well as helping the local economy.
It’s not just about carbon emissions.
The facility also will help meet Australia’s international commitments, including a $500 million climate finance package for 2020.
What’s the cost of the facility?
The project is expected cost $9.8 billion, and it’s expected to be completed by 2025.
The total cost is expected at around $7 billion.
What kinds of products are the new plants likely to produce?
The plant is expected have up to 8,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year, and a carbon tax of about $15 per tonne.
That’s less than the $27.60 per tonnne emissions from the existing factory in Victoria.
The new plant will also have to produce the equipment required to manufacture the industrial filtrating equipment that will be required to treat wastewater for industrial wastewater treatment plants.
What types of equipment are being built at the new factory?
The equipment that is being built is expected come from the industry’s largest manufacturer, the Western Australian Manufacturing Corporation.
The WAMC has an annual output of about 12,000 to 15,000 products and is one of the biggest exporters in the Australian manufacturing industry.
It also has an industrial filtic equipment division that is responsible for making industrial equipment for commercial and industrial use.
This equipment is expected make up about half of the overall output of the plant.
What is the cost to the local community?
The factory will create approximately 4,200 jobs, and an additional 5,000 jobs will be created by other industry-linked employment in the local communities.
The cost to local communities will be $1.5 billion, according to the government.
What about environmental impacts?
The new factory will also produce products for a range of industries that will require environmental remediation.
There is no evidence that the new project will significantly impact the environment, according the NMA.
However, some environmental groups have expressed concern about the project’s impact on marine and freshwater resources.
What happens to the waste that is produced?
The waste will be treated at the plant, and will be processed in a facility at the port.
The waste is then sent to a landfill at the nearby Port Hedland.
How much is the project costing?
The total project cost is $9,867 million.
That includes the construction, engineering and operating costs, plus the costs of cleaning the site and other infrastructure and facilities.
The NMS will also provide funding for the construction of other industrial projects.
What other things are being done to mitigate climate change?
The NMA is expected deliver its final report to the federal government in the second half of 2020, which will include a review of all aspects of the project.
It will also undertake a wider review of the environmental impact of the proposed plant, including how the project will address other regional and international climate change issues.
