Biomass power plants are still burning quality wood
Biomass power plants are still burning quality wood, say sources of the Trend weekly. At the end of last year, parliament approved legislation banning state subsidies for burning quality wood, to protect forests and reduce logging. The power plants are supposed to only burn wooden waste and plantation trees. There is a shortage of such wood on the market, though (or there are too many biomass power plants). The new legislation is ambiguous, checks rare, and fines low, so the power plants ignore it.
