New benchmark set in Newcastle

Supplier: Nordiko Quarantine Systems
14 October, 2013

Newcastle is a major port city on the east coast of Australia, which exports grains and other commodities.

Like many cities, urban encroachment and revitalisation of the city centre and nearby suburbs, has put residential and commercial zones in close proximity to port terminals and facilities. Important traderelated activities such as quarantine and preshipment fumigation of grains, occur there.

These treatments are controlled in NSW by the EPA, which issues licences for emissions. Newcastle Agri Terminal is a new facility to be constructed in 2012, which will significantly increase the capacity for grain exports from
Newcastle.

The latest fumigant capture and dust suppression technology has been incorporated as part of their commitment to corporate social responsibility. Toxic gas emissions recently stirred considerable public debate, arising from accidental releases from the Orica chemical facility in Newcastle Port, which drifted across to Stockton and other nearby suburbs.

Nordiko is proud to be working with Newcastle Agri Terminal – demonstrating that export business - essential to trade and economic prosperity, can be successfully achieved whilst meeting the highest environmental and health and safety standards.
