24th April // 12:00 // The Grocers’ Hall, Princes Street, London EC2R 8AD // Drax is planning to convert half of their coal power station (the UK’s biggest) to burning biomass – most of it imported wood. They are hoping this will secure the long-term future of the power station and allow them to continue burning both vast amounts of coal and imported wood. We are protesting plans for this big biomess and invite you to join us.
We’re mobilising for Drax’s AGM on the 24th April in London – find out how to take DRAXtic Action here! To find out more about the Green Bank and our efforts to stop more funding for biomass, see Banking on Big Biomass and for more information on coal-biomass conversions see our campaign page Coal-Biomass Conversions.
Please help us spread the word through our Facebook events page, too.
