MAKE WOOD WORK CAMPAIGN
EDM #1788
Tabled 10 May 2011
2010-12 Session
That this House recognises the important contribution of the wood manufacturing sector to the UK economy; is alarmed by the inefficiency of burning wood to generate electricity alone; doubts the sustainability and environmental benefits of large-scale biomass energy; is further alarmed that a single biomass plant could consume a quarter of the UK's annual wood harvest; is concerned that the Renewables Obligation is distorting the domestic wood market; supports the wood panel industry's campaign, Make Wood Work, to promote the optimal use of a valuable and limited resource; notes that the wood panel industry contributes over a third of industrial renewable heat generation and is the largest processor of waste wood; further recognises the vital contribution of wood products in storing carbon; and calls on the Government to move biomass support from low-efficiency electricity generation to high-efficiency heat and combined heat and power.
