It seeks views on proposed changes to the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) to exclude further support for biomass installations in urban areas on the gas grid. Burning biomass in boilers, such as those supported through the RHI, contributes to airborne pollution. They produce fine smoke particles and other toxic air pollutants including benzene, formaldhyde, acrolein and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
This consultation from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy runs from 16 October to 27 November 2018.
