Bradken Foundry, Kilburn
Regulation of new plans for foundry
The EPA is working to ensure Bradken Foundry meets its February 2017 deadline for reduced odour emission that will protect the local community.
In December 2014, Bradken scaled down operations after announcing a site closure.
When operations continued, the EPA imposed new licence conditions to secure odour emission compliance by 27 February 2017 and require a plan of action to be submitted detailing how compliance will be achieved, together with monthly reporting on progress of works.
Bradken has recently submitted a development application to the City of Port Adelaide Enfield and a plan of action to the EPA, detailing the proposed upgrade with supporting air and noise assessment reports, whilst maintaining current production levels.
The EPA will carefully assess the proposal to ensure it achieves licence requirements and also direct development conditions.
The EPA supports the ongoing viability of Bradken’s operations at Kilburn, providing all stringent environmental controls are met and the community is protected from impacts.
If you would like further information on the proposed development, please contact the City of Port Adelaide Enfield on 8405 6600 or email.
Please report any pollution issues relating to the Kilburn foundry to the EPA through the Pollution Hotline on 8204 2004 or 1800 623 445 (country callers).
