APP’s Rolf Stein quoted in The Guardian’s Letters section

Rolf Stein, CEO, of APP has been quoted in The Guardian’s letter on ‘Helpless and powerless on climate change’.

“Your article on the chancellor’s gas strategy is right to highlight the risks in the UK’s carbon targets resulting from his plans for gas expansion. However, there is another option to the scenario presented by Damian Carrington. The expansion of “green gas” would allow the chancellor to align his plans for gas expansion without becoming dependent on expensive, subsidised, controversial and unproven shale gas exploration or on foreign gas for our energy security.

There may be a need for gas, in preference to coal, in our energy mix but this does not have to come from expensive fossil fuels. Substitute natural gas can be created directly from abundant commercial and municipal waste and other biomass sources for injection into the national grid. This is a viable, efficient and green alternative.”
