The focus of this presentation will be on biomass, including the massive 300 MW wood-burning power station in Teesside for which MGT Power has planning permission (not yet under construction) and one they have proposed to build in Tyneside.
Biofuelwatch works to raise awareness of the negative impacts of industrial biofuels and bioenergy on biodiversity, human rights, food sovereignty and climate change. Based in UK and US, we work with national and international partners to expose and oppose the social and environmental damages resulting from bioenergy-driven increased demand for industrial agriculture and forestry monocultures.
