About this event

Tilbury Power Station has been converted to generate electricity by burning a 100% Biomass. This talk will give an introduction to the project and the problems faced in the conversion. Making Tilbury into the world’s largest Biomass fired power station required leading technical, logistical and environmental expertise. The questions this talk will answer are: What were the challenges in converting a 45 year old coal power station to burn wood? How green is burning wood cut down 4000 miles away? What did Greenpeace, WWF and Friends of the Earth make of it? 

Speaker
