Wesley Vale pulp mill

The Wesley Vale pulp mill was a planned kraft process pulp mill was to be built near Wesley Vale in northern Tasmania in the late 1980s. The claim that waste would have been generated by the mill and present a threat to Tasmania's World Heritage listed forests became a significant environmental and political issue at the State and Federal levels and construction of the mill was eventually canceled by its foreign-owned backers Noranda and North Ltd.
