Last Update: 13/08/2019

GENTING HIGHLANDS, Aug 13  (Bernama) -- The Pahang government has not had any discussions with rare earths processing company Lynas Malaysia Sdn Bhd (Lynas) about a Permanent Disposal Facility in the state, said Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail.

He said that so far, he has not met any representatives from the company regarding the PDF for its Water Leached Purification (WLP) waste.

"If there is a proposal from them, the priority  of the state government will be the people’s safety, that has always been our stand,” he told Bernama here today.

Earlier, the menteri besar had witnessed the signing of a memorandum of understanding between  DSA Development Sdn Bhd (DSA Development) and Trinidad Group, Shimao Star Hotel Group and Go Steam Cell Holdings to develop 'The Richz Eco Tourism and Golden Age Retirement City' (The Richz).

Wan Rosdy was commenting on a news report that five locations in  Pahang had been identified for the PDF. 

The company’s plant in Gebeng, Kuantan has been mired in controversy since it started operations. On one side, there are people clamouring for the plant to be closed down due to safety concerns while on the other, that it provides jobs for locals. The company itself has stated that it complies with all safety standards.
