ChanceryGreen acted for Pacific Steel Group in successfully re-consenting its steel recycling plant. Pacific Steel, a division of Fletcher Building, is New Zealand’s largest metal recycler, converting around 300,000 tonnes annually of scrap metal into quality steel products. Pacific Steel is New Zealand’s only steel rod and bar manufacturer, and plays a major role in the construction market, holding an 85% market share in the production of reinforcing steel.
Pacific Steel’s operations are highly valuable to the meeting New Zealand’s recycling and waste management targets. Pacific Steel were granted the air-discharge consent from Auckland Regional Council upon satisfactory conditions following a week-long hearing in April 2010.
