We breath in enough effluents from em missions in the Roosecote area from Centrica and United Utilities without further additions.Who will invest in the Marina project if this gors ahead.
An American report "Lessons Learned from existing Biomass Plants" covering 20 plants built between 1979 & 1998 states that the McNeil Power Plant's location is less than ideal. It is adjacent to a residential neighbourhood of a metropolitan area. The topography is such that the top of the boiler is about the same elevation as some residences on a nearby hill. Truck traffic, noise, odours and emissions were problems during project planning and initial operations.The report also states, generally speaking, it is best to site a Biomass plant as close as possible to the centre of its fuel supply and far from residential neighbourhoods. The source of this information was the McNeil Station Superintendent. The McNeil plant appears to be in a similar position to the proposed Roosecote Biomass plant.Taking all this into account why are the Government and Centrica not learning from the American experience?
