RESOURCE companies in the country should ensure they apply sound management system in their operations,  Environment and Conservation Minister John Pundari says.

He said this during a tour of InterOil’s refinery facility at Napanapa, outside of Port Moresby last week.
During a briefing with the company, Pundari was impressed with InterOil’s environmental management and monitoring practices. He said the refinery facility was small, however, it uses some of the world’s recognised standards that are less harmful to the environment.

“This is small refinery but it introduces some of the world’s best standards as far as water treatment is concerned.  InterOil says it puts more emphasis on waste management and monitoring activities while using state of the art facilities. The company is also investing about US$250,000 on incinerator for treating solid and liquid wastes.
