Drax using wood from virgin forests - panorama programme
« on: October 03, 2022, 01:12:36 am »
Someone was asking me about the use of wood chips from primary forests on the west coast of North America.  It seems the Beeb has cottoned on at last and panorama is doing a programme about it:

<<A company that has received billions of pounds in green energy subsidies from UK taxpayers is cutting down environmentally-important forests, a BBC Panorama investigation has found.

Drax runs Britain's biggest power station, which burns millions of tonnes of imported wood pellets - which is classed as renewable energy.

The BBC has discovered some of the wood comes from primary forests in Canada.............>>

info from BBC News online

Panorama's The Green Energy Scandal Exposed is on BBC One at 20:00 on Monday 3rd October and on iPlayer afterwards
