Green Distillation Technologies, which has proposed building a $8.5 million plant in Longford, Tasmania to process end of life car and truck tyres, is considering its position and may proceed with construction.
They had previously announced that they would not proceed if the Local Council does not end its move to revoke Tyre Recycle Tasmania’s permit to store tyres on their site beyond March 2016.
The Chairman of GDTC, Mr John Fletcher will visit Tasmania in next two weeks to meet with Government and industry representatives as well as their consultants who are involved in lodging the Development Application.
They will also decide whether to prepare a submission to the Tasmanian Government on construction plans and the economic implications of their plant for Tasmania in terms of long term employment and revenue for the state from the sale of the oil, carbon and steel that will come from the processed tyres.
GDTC had planned to start work on their site in Longford, which is adjacent to the tyre storage area this month and to have the facility operating in June 2016, but the Northern Midland Council has decreed that the temporary planning permit for the existing tyre dump of 1.3 million tyres will be revoked in March 2016.
