    Action group appeals against biomass power plant ban

    Updated

    A Tasmanian biomass power 바카라사이트plant campaigner has said 우리카지노the carbon capture industry had been effectively censored by environmentalists.

    Catherine MacQuarrie says the industry will never achieve the emission targets set by the Federal Government.

    Ms MacQuarrie of the Greens energy co-op told the ABC there had been a lot of pressure from non-government bodies on the biomass industry and that some of that pressure was being met through legal action.

    Her group had applied to have the ban extended from Victoria to Tasmania, where the first plants are being built and which has been the target for the carbon capture industry.

    It claimed Victoria was one of the five states with the largest number of biomass plants.

    The Victorian government has opposed this proposal, but Ms MacQuarrie says she hoped it would be reconsidered in the national더킹카지노 context.

    She says it is in Victoria’s best interests, because biomass plants were “not particularly high-emission industries”.

    A statement from the state government says the state government’s goal was to use a “fair and balanced approach” to energy policy that would “not be unduly influenced by industry interests or industry lobby groups”.
