Not so green

Have your say

THE Drax biomass electricity generating plant uses trees felled in US which are turned into pellets, then sailed 4,000 miles to the UK, then loaded on to a train and taken to Drax and burned in place of coal. Green? Hardly.

The coal created 1018kg CO2e/MWh but wood pellets were far higher at 3032. Drax also gets a subsidy for every MWh generated from these pellets and we pay. Still think biomass is green?
