Mossman Bio-Mill


A Bio-Mill as the Heart of Mossman for Generations to Come

For many in Mossman, the Sugar Mill has traditionally been a place of employment and a mainstay of the local economy, although some rightly argue the Mill has not kept up with the times and as a result has been the subject of endless complaints around poor EPA standards and lack of care for those who live nearby. 

I have no intentions of taking up the case to close the Mill. I see it as part of the foundation of our shire. For the benefit of the entire community, council must work alongside the Mill’s new owners to ensure they can meet their commitments and smoothly transition to operating within EPA regulations as a bio-refinery and integral part of our local economy for generations to come.
