Biofuel power plant plan refused

Date : 24th February 2010, Source : BBC Link to News Story



An application to build a biofuel power station at Avonmouth, capable of powering 25,000 homes, has been refused by city councillors. The plant, which would had been fuelled initially by palm oil, was attacked by critics who blamed the demand for palm oil for rainforest destruction. The meeting was told the decision had to be made according to material planning considerations, not emotions. But councillors went against advice from planners and voted 6-2 against it.
