PETALING JAYA: The Lynas rare earth ­refinery in Gebeng, Kuantan, will be allowed to continue operating provided it removes and disposes its processing by-products from the country, particularly the controversial water leach purification residue.

The Environment, Science, Tech­nology and Climate Change Minis­try, which announced the decision, said the government will allow Lynas to renew its future licence and permission if the company complies with two pre-­conditions for the management of its wastes.
