Altona Updates

Qenos Altona Maintenance Activities Update – April 2018

The planned maintenance activities at the Altona Olefins and Plastics plants is nearing completion. We will progressively return the plants to normal production over the next two weeks..

Some flaring will be evident at both facilities during the plant re-starts. Some of this flaring will occur overnight, however this will be controlled to minimise the chance of disturbing our neighbours.

We look forward to completing the return to production with minimal impact or concern on the part of our neighbours and community.

If you have any queries please contact the Qenos Environmental Advisor Mr. Les Harman by email at

Flares are used to safely burn waste gases which cannot be recovered or recycled in the processing plants. Further information about flares at Altona can be found in the following link:
