QLD BRANCH TECHNICAL EVENT

Site Visit to Port of Brisbane

Thursday, 25 March, 2021

The Queensland Branch of CASANZ invite members and guests to a technical event at the Port of Brisbane on 25 March. The event will comprise a tour of the port site and facilities and be followed by a technical presentation from Craig Wilson, Environment Manager, Port of Brisbane.

The Port of Brisbane is a cornerstone of the Queensland economy; it is one of Australia’s fastest growing container ports and that state’s largest multi-cargo port. The Port of Brisbane handles a number of bulk cargoes including coal, cement products and agricultural products. As the major logistics hub in South East Queensland, the Port of Brisbane is subject to high volumes of commercial shipping, rail and truck traffic. There are also significant construction activities being undertaken at the Port of Brisbane including the development of a 240 hectare reclamation area. Environmental management is a key focus at the Port of Brisbane. The above activities all have the potential to impact on local and regional air quality through various emissions. Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd has undertaken various air quality monitoring and modelling studies to better classify and understand the impacts of all port activities on local and regional air quality.

The event will comprise a technical presentation from Craig, Environment Manager, Port of Brisbane followed by a site tour of the port site and facilities including the port’s air quality monitoring network and key port facilities including emission sources.

During the technical presentation, Craig will cover a range of topics in the management of the port and its environment including:

  • Activities at the port;
  • Air quality management at the port; and
  • Future plans for the port

Please join us at our first in-person technical event for 2021, incorporating the site tour and technical presentation at the Port of Brisbane.
