Say No to Experimental Gasification plant at BlackbridgeSay No to Experimental Gasification plant at Blackbridge

Egnedol has applied for planning permission to build a large biomass and waste Gasification Plant in Blackbridge, Milford Haven.  There are huge concerns regarding this plant, from the risks of explosion and high air pollution, and increased transport of fuel.  The company has no track record of using this technology, and no company has yet made this technology work in the UK.  The public has until 2nd February 2017 to send in objections to this application.

Some argue that we would have improved this anyway, but the reality is that EU directives forced the British Government to act. The Haven itself was designated as a SAC by the EU.

So what would happen if we leave?

Action at Ffos-y-Fran opencast coalmineAction at Ffos-y-Fran opencast coalmine

Activists and local residents organised a camp and mass trespass to close the Ffos-y-Fran opencast coal mine near Merthyr recently.  They are hoping that by drawing attention to the site, the Welsh Government is less likely to grant planning permission for the Nant Lesg extension, or that at least that the company will decide that security costs of guarding the extension from protesters make it commercially non-viable.
