Environmentalists and Hsinchu residents yesterday rallied in front of the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) in Taipei to protest Asia Cement Co’s perceived maneuvers to circumvent environmental reviews of a proposed mining project in Hsiunchu County’s Guansi Township (關西).

Asia Cement planned to resume mining operations at a quarry in Guansi after the Hsinchu County Government deregulated mineral reserves in the county in 2013.
