A poser to Federal and Penang state governments why Jinko Solar manufacturing facility can be approved without EIA report ?

My request to DOE for a EIA report for Jinko factory on 30 June 2015.

perkara: Request EIA report for Jinko Solar Factory in Penang
Keterangan:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have studied Jinko Solar’s pollution case in China and followed up its set up in Penang. As a rakyat who cares about environmental issue and health of our people. I do not satisfy with the answer given by Penang Chief Minister, Lim Guan Eng that no EIA is required for the factory set up because DOE has never asked for EIA study.

In my study, a solar panel factory is discharging various hazardous chemical compounds, (http://www.nkkhoo.com/2015/06/28/a-poser-to-malaysia-and-penang-state-government-why-the-same-company-jinko-solar-manufacturing-facility-can-be-approved-without-eia-report/).

A poser to DOE and Penang state government, how do you make sure the chemical compounds are properly treated before discharging into river or sea.

Please share with me the EIA report to convince me that there is no potential chemical pollution caused by Jinko factory.

Jinko solar-panel factory in Haining city, China was shut down in Sept 2011 by the Chinese local government after the leaking pollutants have polluting a nearby river due to improper storage of waste containing flouride.

A violent protest by hundreds of local residents has forced the authorities to shut down operation of the factory temporarily.

AFP news with the title “Everyone is angry beyond belief” on 19 Sept, 2011 has reported that Haining’s city government said tests had shown the factory was emitting excessive levels of fluoride, which can be toxic in high doses, as it announced the temporary shutdown. “(We) ordered the company to halt production and overhaul the production procedures that involve emission of waste gas and waste water,” it said in a statement.

Photovoltaics manufacturing processes are not green and pollution free, more than ten types of toxic chemical compounds are used and produced several by-products like cadmium compounds, hydrogen chloride, trichlorosilane, carbon tetrachloride, hydrofluoric acid, nitric acid, hydrogen fluoride, sodium hydroxide, etc. See table below,

hazardous-materials-in-photovoltaics-manufacturing

According to potential hazards in PV manufacturing handbook [http://www0.bnl.gov/pv/files/pdf/art_170.pdf] published by US government, those chemical compounds have minor and critical effects on health.

For instance, cadmium compounds is linked to cancer and kidney failure critical risk and carbon tetrachloride is linked to liver and cancer risk and emission of greenhouse gas.

Each ton of photovoltaics produced in factory will release 3.5 ton trichlorosilane and 4.5 ton silicon tetrachloride.

By rough estimate, a 500MW factory will produce about 2 million panels a year or 40,000 ton panels a year. The tonnage of trichlorosilane waste alone is 140,000 ton. A few hundred thousand ton of chemical waste is produced yearly by the factory.

Where are these untreated toxic wastes go since there is no chemical waste treatment facility in Penang? They are either ship back to USA or keep in the store room permanently or discharge into sea like current practice for other factories.

In view of Jinko poor safety record in its manufacturing facility in China and various hazard chemical compounds are used and by-products produced in the manufacturing process.

Why there is no proper EIA study is conducted before build and operation approval is granted to the company. Why EIA exemption is given by the Department of Environment (DOE)?

大陆五毛党也扮大马华人讲民主自由

本人读完BS的”支持政府驱逐黄之锋“的八卦文后,有很多疑点和不快如鱼骨梗在喉里不得不吐。

希望当今大马编辑要先调查BS作者是否被大马政府委任为”大马人的代表”。此君动辄代表我们大马人是侮辱到本人和其他大马人的尊严。

此君用对人不对事的态度去谴责黄之锋是非常符合中共五毛党的惯性作风。本人非常怀疑此人不是大马华人。本人也顺便提交我的身份证给当今大马华文编辑和公开用我的真名来证实本人是堂堂正正的大马公民。

本人只想用对事不对人的态度来一一反驳BS君的歪论。

黄之锋在香港的法律面前还是清白的人,他的抗议活动非法不非法还未经过法庭的公开审判,难道BS要大马政府去学习大陆共产党用不审判把人送进监牢的恶政吗?

大马政府是用莫须有的罪名拒绝他入境。幸运的是大马政府还未学到中共政府拒绝自己的公民回国自首。

假如BS是大马华人的话(我相信他不是!),当一个马来人也学他的口气向他说,”你示什么威,你投什么诉,不喜欢马来西亚的大选制度和国阵政府,你可以收拾包袱远走高飞咯。” 此君还大言夸夸说,”学一学大马华人吧!很多认为这个国家让他们失望就头也不回,毫无眷恋离开!”。

本人负责任的说,真正的大马华人是不会像他所说的马上收拾包袱远走高飞。我会用法治的精神和方式去反驳对方和向警方报案对方在侵害到本人的公民权。

至少有三十万大马华人在新加坡工作,本人也曾是这支大军之一员。我不否认他们对大马政府的施政方针很不满, 但他们多数是不会放弃大马公民的身份。因为我们大马华人不是东亚病夫,用追避来解决问题!

假如BS很喜欢中共施加在香港人的假普选,我也不妨学他一下,请他移民到大陆去吧。本人只是用劝告的方式,不是用他的泼妇骂街指着别人的鼻子叫他滚到大陆去。坦白的说,BS君和香港人移民不移民是他们的个人自由,他们想移去火星也是他们个人的私事。

本人也奉劝此君要先学会尊重别人的言论和示威自由,若香港人如黄之锋有在他的国家触犯到法律,也是他国的内务事,向况目前他还是个清白的人。香港和中国政府都不曾要求大马政府禁止他访问马来西亚,黄之锋访问马来西亚关你屁事啊!

不要拿什么IS威胁论来说教要大家放弃自由去做个只会吃饭的愚民。英国和美国人在二战的生死存亡时期都不曾放弃过自由民主的原则和大选,何况是一个茶杯里的IS小风波。

最后希望当今大马编辑用专业的作业方式来挑选来信,不要刊登什么个人是代表着大马人的言论。本人实在不想再浪费宝贵的时间去反驳自大,傲慢和无知的人的言论。
