Case Study – Contaminated Land Projects: GLOBAL OLIVINE (WA) LTD. Public Environmental Review (PER), Redevelopment of contaminated land & groundwater at former Petrochemical Industries Limited (PICL) site, Kwinana, Western Australia


An initial review of the contamination status of the former Petrochemical Industries Ltd (PICL) site in Kwinana was undertaken. Global Olivine proposes to develop a Waste-to-
Energy and Water plant on the site.

The site was greendfield prior to 1957, when it was acquired by BP Petroleum as part of the Kwinana refinery development.
Approximately 1/3rd of the site was used for refinery waste disposal operations prior to substantial remedial works in 1988.

The land was purchased by PICL in 1987, although no development took place before it’s subsequent purchase by LandCorp in 1993.
A Public Environmental Review (PER) was prepared in support of the proposed
site re-development by Global Olivine.

Specific aspects included et al Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA’s) to the Land, Water and Marine environments.
