the world are mandating more environmentally friendly production and use of
fuels and are progressively imposing stringent emission standards for
petrol and diesel. The Darwin Clean Fuels project will help meet this need
by processing Condensate as a more environmentally friendly alternative to
the more usual crude oil feedstock's used to
produce transport fuels.
Darwin Clean Fuels is equally concerned to minimise the impact on the local
environment and engaged leading global environmental consulting firm AECOM
to assess solar and hydrogen production for the proposed plant. Results from this
extensive study concluded that there are no environmental issues that would
prevent the construction and operation of the Condensate Processing
Facility at the Middle Arm site. Further modelling recently undertaken
shows a 75% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to existing crude oils
refineries in Australia.
The company has lodged a detailed Notice of Intent with the Northern
Territory Government, that includes a statutory
period for community feedback.
