The changes to the Liable Entities Public Information Database were based on new information provided to the CER about facilities over the 25,000 tonne emissions threshold.

Among those added were:

* Orica;

* Paper Australia;

* Jemena's Queensland gas pipeline;

* AGL Energy Services and four other subsidiaries;

* three Alinta entities, including WA co-generation facilities at Pinjarra and Wagerup; and

* Dalby Bio-Refinery.

There are now 351 potentially liable entities published on the LEPID.
