Industrial gas and fracking are currently being provided to the state of Victoria, with some companies having taken on full and ongoing role in this industry.
These services have the potential to reduce or even reverse the rate of COVID-19 deaths in Victoria and Australia, but how much longer will they remain in place?
A new study by the Institute of Public Affairs finds that industrial gas is still being provided for some of these services, but they are in a state of limbo.
The study finds that since 2013, a total of 17.3 million gas and wastewater wastewater treatment facilities have been approved for new construction in Victoria.
These facilities are designed to reduce pollution from industrial gas.
They are typically designed to be connected to existing infrastructure and provide access to a range of services that the state can no longer provide.
However, this process is being delayed.
There are currently 15 new industrial gas treatment facilities in Victoria, but the state is only in the process of approving three of these.
In 2014, the Victorian Government announced that industrial wastewater treatment would be reclassified as a major industrial resource in the 2020-2021 state budget, which was a significant shift in priorities for the state’s environment and health.
This new classification would allow the Victorian State Government to make significant savings to public health, the environment, and the economy.
However it is not clear what this classification will mean for the industrial gas industry, or the services they provide.
Industrial gas is currently provided by a variety of companies and groups.
For instance, the Industrial Gas Association of Victoria has the role of managing the industry in Victoria through its members.
In 2017, the Commonwealth Government allocated $1.8 million towards industrial gas in Victoria in the form of a funding stream for wastewater treatment.
However this is only the start of this funding stream.
At the moment, the Australian Gas and Electric Commission (AGEC) regulates the industrial wastewater and gas treatment industries.
However the current process is far from working for the industry, and it is unclear what is going to happen to this regulatory framework over the coming years.
If the industrial gases industry is not able to deliver its services to the Australian community in a timely manner, it will become difficult for them to continue to operate.
As a result, industrial gas services are likely to be provided in the future, but with some uncertainty and uncertainty in terms of what the future of this industry looks like.
