KUALA LUMPUR,  April 1 (Bernama) -- The Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Ministry wants to collaborate with the Australian government to ensure waste from Lynas Malaysia Sdn Bhd (Lynas) is sent to Australia, the Dewan Rakyat was told today.

Deputy Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister Isnaraissah Munirah Majilis said the collaboration involves finding ways to remove the water leached purification (WLP) waste produced by the Lynas factory to be sent to Australia before September this year.

"Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister (Yeo Bee Yin) has written a letter to her Australian counterpart last Feb 26 to inform about the collaboration to facilitate removal of the waste from Malaysia to Australia,” she added.

She was responding to a question by Wong Chen (PKR-Subang) on measures by the government to ensure Lynas waste is sent to Australia.

Isnaraissah Munirah said at the same time, a task force set up by the government was identifying suitable international procedures and instruments involved in the process of removing the WLP residue.

It will take into account all legal,public and workers’ safety and the environment, she added.
