Down on Bootle Docks a major project is being planned than will provide around 200 construction jobs and 50 permanent jobs. Alpines want to build a major biomass project with an investment of £300m. Ihave no idea whether this scheme is appropriate for the site but there are some encouraging features not least of all that most of the traffic bring raw material to the site will come by boat. In addition the low carbon fuel produced will supply the grid. They intend to recycle wood into pellets-the same fuel as we use in our stove at work. Those who want to know more can find information about the scheme here.
