The Developers are holding an informal public consultation prior to applying for planning permission for Phase 2. They write: ‘Following a review of proposed fuels for the energy centre the use of first generation bio-oil as a fuel source is no longer being considered.’
NEWS: The Developers are rethinking their Energy Strategy and will bring it to informal consultation in October/November before submitting it to the full planning process.
A new local group, supported by Biofuelwatch, campaigning to prevent the proposed use of so called ‘low-carbon bio-oil’ to light and heat the massive new development planned for the Battersea Power Station site in London. If approved, this would likely become the UK’s first large bio-oil CHP plant and could send the green light to other companies and investors keen on similar developments. The owners of the power-station include Sime Darby one of the world’s largest palm oil producer. Experience from Germany tells us that whatever the promises of the owners these projects end up using palm-oil, being the cheapest and most available bio-liquid.
We need a passionate local campaign with a national impact to prevent this. Please join us.
