Lynas Corporation has been issued with a Full Operating Stage Licence (FOSL) by the Malaysian Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) for the Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP) at Gebeng near the port of Kuantan.
The decision which was announced last week follows a rigorous review undertaken by the AELB and other independent regulatory bodies in Malaysia, all of whom concluded that the LAMP is in compliance with applicable regulations.
“Receiving this licence is another significant milestone for Lynas, and validates the safe and secure operation of the LAMP during the two year tenure of the Temporary Operating Licence,” says Lynas chairman Nicholas Curtis.
“Lynas looks forward to continuing the ramp-up of LAMP production and sales, and to securing its future as a sustainable supply chain partner in this strategic global market.” The FOSL is renewable in two years. www.lynascorp.com
