Report Concludes Rare Earth Plant Complies with IAEA

The review concluded that the Malaysian government has implemented all recommendations from a 2011 study.

According to a report from the IAEA, the Malaysian government has implemented all recommendations stemming from a 2011 study on radiation safety at the Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP) near Kuantan, Malaysia.

"After the analysis of all documentation provided by the relevant counterpart and examined by the review team and in addition to the observations collected during the site visit and the dialogue sustained with different stakeholders, it became evident that the radiological risks to members of the public and to the environment associated with the operation of [the] Lynas Advanced Material Plant are intrinsically low," the report further concludes.

The facility is where concentrate of rare earth ore will be further processed to produce high purity rare earth compounds.
