Blackbridge Biomass Gasification Plant Blackbridge Biomass Gasification Plant

Egnedol are submitting a planning application for a 49.9 MW biomass plant which would burn, or rather gasify, around 400,000 tonnes of wood a year. Over time they want to scale the plant up seven-fold to 350 MW, larger than any dedicated biomass power plant in the world (although additional planning consent would be needed).

In a detailed briefing Biofuelwatch argue that Egnedol's proposal is a high risk, unproven technology for burning chemically treated waste wood and 'super-trees'

Save Cardigan Bay!Save Cardigan Bay!
The Welsh Government is consulting on proposals to open up more of Cardigan Bay to destructive scallop dredging. The consultation is asking how this should be done. But we object strongly to any proposal to increase scallop dredging and even would argue that the ban should be extended to the areas which are currently being exploited.
Sign the petition today and PLEASE take a few minutes to respond to the consultation. You can do so by going to the online form

And by emailing fisheriesmailbox@Wales.gsi.gov.uk

It only takes a second to answer NO to question 2 which is the important question. If you have more time, please add your comments to the form and email as well.

Act NOW the deadline is 17th February
