The Pingtung Agricultural Biotechnology Park’s expansion project yesterday passed its environmental impact assessment (EIA) review, paving the way for the introduction of more businesses, including animal-use vaccine manufacturers and biofuel companies.
The 223-hectare park in the county’s Changjhih Township (長治) started operating in 2006 and currently houses 96 companies. As the park is nearing capacity, its manager, the Council of Agriculture, has proposed utilizing a 165-hectare plot of land northeast of the park for expansion.
