Qenos Altona Maintenance Activities – April 2018

Qenos would like to inform our neighbours and local community of some planned maintenance activities scheduled for the first three weeks of April at the Altona Olefins and Plastics plants in Maidstone St.

Some flaring will be evident at both facilities during the shutdown of these plants, and again during start-up. Some of this flaring will occur overnight for the first few days of the shutdown and the start- up, however this will be controlled to minimise the chance of disturbing our neighbours.

We look forward to completing this important work with minimal impact or concern on the part of our neighbours and community.

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

Any updates will be published here on the Qenos website and on ACNCG website. > Click on “Community Updates” Link. or

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:
