Lynas Corporation company had build Rare Earth in Gebeng, Kuantan. If everything goes as planned, by September this year, the largest rare earth refinery in the worldcalled Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP) will start operating in Gebeng Industrial Zone, some 25 km away from Kuantan town, home to almost half a million people. Lynas will import rare earth ores from Mount Weld in Australia to be processed in Gebeng. The finished products will be exported overseas while the radioactive waste dumped in Gebeng. This plant will cast a shadow over Kuantan town. Real estate price will plunge, residents who are able to relocate will flee and those who are not will be in constant fear of radiation exposure. As soon as operations begin, Lynas Advanced Materials plant will leave behind 28,000 tonnes of solid waste per year.
SOLID WASTE MATERIAL
3 types of waste from the cracking-separation plant:
Water Leached Purification (WLP)
• The residue from the water leach and neutralisation process
is a slightly acidic filter cake containing Fe2SO4, PO4, SO4
and lesser amount of Ca & Mg and insoluble oxides and
hydroxides of Al, Ca, Si, Mn and rare earths.
Flue Gas Desulphurization Residue (FGD)
• Lime will be used to remove SO2 from waste gas stream and
produce Ca2SO4 solid
Neutralization Underflow Residue (NUF)
• Produced from the neutralisation of a dilute sulfuric acid.
