Thursday, 3 December, 2020

The CASANZ Victoria/Tasmania Branch committee is holding its end of year event to recognise excellence in our industry.  On Thursday 3 December 2020, we will be holding the Werner Strauss Awards Night and AGM. The event will include a presentation on the Hazelwood coal mine fire prosecution case titled:

Reflections on the Hazelwood coal mine fire prosecution case

Guest Speaker Dr. David Neal Senior Council of the Victorian Bar Council
The Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) laid charges against four companies for air pollution offences from smoke impacts generated during the 2014 Hazelwood coal mine fire that lasted over 45-days.  Dr. Neal led the EPA prosecution case during an eight-week trial in the Supreme Court of Victoria against the operator of the power station. The mine operator was found guilty of the air pollution offences and sentenced to fines of $380,000. David will speak about his experience and reflections of the prosecution case.

Werner Strauss Awards Presentation
The Branch awards recognise individuals or organisations who, in the judgment of the society, have made an outstanding contribution to the field of air quality.  The 2020 recipient(s) will be announced during the awards ceremony.
