Potential planning rejection for Llangefni biomass plant

EcoPellets's plans to burn an annual 100,000 tonnes of wood pellets at a 17MW solid biomass co-generation plant and a 14MW liquid biomass plant in Llangefni, are on the verge of falling through due to concerns about the potentially damaging effects they will have on local air quality as well as noise pollution worries.

The £100 million (€122.98 million) plant was set to create a reported 400 jobs in the area, but it is thought that the noise and smell that it would also create would actually lead to an increase in unemployment, thus putting the local economy under pressure.

Planning officers are recommending the application is rejected by councillors at the next planning committee meeting.
