Western Australia’s Environmental Protection Authority has issued guidelines regarding new emissions-intensive projects. It states that any new or expanded project that emits over 100,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year should be carbon neutral. The new guidelines potentially jeopardise new LNG projects worth over $45 billion, although EPA chairman Tom Hatton notes that its decisions are not binding on the state government.
