In 2022, Drax and the forest biomass industry were exposed internationally for their green energy facade – logging and burning forests for fuel and calling it clean.
The US is the largest exporter of forest biomass in the world supplying the majority of what Drax is burning in the UK. And in the US southeast, Drax-owned pellet plants emit illegal levels of toxic pollutants into the air of nearby poor, majority-Black communities, which has increased serious health issues of local residents.
This environmental racism is unacceptable. Drax’ public scrutiny just keeps piling up – it’s high time the US government breaks up with forest biomass.
Let’s level up the groundswell of public pressure around this issue and send a direct message to decision makers to convince them that the best way to avoid this worsening scandal is to follow Australia’s lead and reject forest biomass as a renewable energy solution.
