Wood-fired electricity

Burning native forest wood- sometimes referred to as biomass or bioenergy- is a big problem for our forests, catchments and the climate.

Unfortunately it's being heavily promoted, particularly in Asia, where both Japan and South Korea have huge wood-fired power stations. Australian forest companies recently sent a delegation to Japan, offering wood from our forests. It is this market that is driving serious intensification of logging in the forests of northern NSW.
