Lynas Advance Material Plant (Lamp) has submitted to the Government its permanent disposal facility (PDF) plan on the final day of its deadline.
Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Dr Ewon Ebin told the Dewan Rakyat that the company submitted the plans on July 2 but the details of the proposal was still being reviewed by the Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB).
"We need to look into the details and if the proposal is not complete, we will return it back for further action," he said in reply to a supplementary question by Fuziah Salleh (PKR-Kuantan) during Question.
Fuziah had asked the Government whether Lamp had submitted its PDF plans to as the deadline within its temporary operating license (TOL) had expired.
The Government, however, could not disclose all the proposed locations of the waste facility as it was still studying the matter and it had not been finalised, said Ewon.
The PDF plan was one of the required regulations, to be issued within ten months, as stated in its temporary operating license (TOL), issued last September.
