Biofuels: Making the climate crisis worse, not better

National Demonstration against Agrofuels, Saturday 25th September

At the site of the proposed new palm-oil burning, agrofuel power station at Portland in Dorset. More detailed info...

The demonstration will be organised together with Biofuelwatch, Campaign Against Climate Change and No Oil Palm Energy (NOPE) - a very strong local group in Dorset.

Transport will be organised from London and possibly other places. If you are interested in joining the coach from London (to Portland for the day) please contact stopagrofuels@campaigncc.org

The application for an agrofuel power station in Portland was approved in January (after the initial rejection was overturned on appeal by the company making the proposal, W4B). The power station will burn palm oil and increase by one third the volume of palm oil currently being imported to this country for energy usage. See more here.

Petrol and Diesel

Right now in the EU 2.5% of the petrol and diesel we all use comes from agrofuels: it’s already mixed in at the pump. Food Not Fuel is calling for a moratorium on EU funding, growing and importing of agrofuels. Read more and take action.
