Coal plant DEIA rejected
Sabah Environment Protection Department Director, Yabi Yangkat, said he was informed of the decision by the Director-General of DOE through a faxed message Wednesday afternoon.
A central reason DOE cited for rejecting the DEIA, prepared by a team of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) Bakarunding consultants, was many important environmental parameters in respect to the proposed project were not addressed in the DEIA report, according to Yabi.
He said the DOE took note of the range of shortcomings and queries raised at the DEIA Panel of Review meeting on August 27 at the Kedah Room, Federal Building, here.
Now, we can ask for alternative power solutions.....example our SABAH GAS!
