The highest court in the Netherlands ruled in the Urgenda Climate Case that we have a real chance of dying from the consequences of CO2 emissions. That is why the Dutch State is obligated to reduce these emissions by 25% by the end of 2020.
The biomass case
The evidence is clear. To prevent catastrophic global warming, we must greatly reduce CO2 emissions and increase carbon storage in natural ecosystems. Forests are the best way to remove carbon from the air. However with biomass burning the Dutch government promotes tree felling and wood burning. They say the trees will grow back, so burning is "carbon neutral". As a result, there is an explosive increase in forest clearing, which increases the emission of greenhouse gases and particulate matter. As a result, serious damage to our health, forests and thus biodiversity and climate is expected.
Backed by science we are going to file lawsuits against the government and wood burning industry. Forest clearing and biomass burning destroy cultural heritage and ancient forests and damage the health and well-being of communities worldwide. This policy collides with EU policy to protect the environment, use natural resources wisely, combat climate change and ensure that the polluter pays.
In addition to the legal objections, WOB requests, defaults, updating and revocation requests for permits for the biomass plant addressed to the Province and the Environment Agency, we have also started the first legal proceedings. Unfortunately, many will have to follow to get rid of this destructive policy. Do you want to support us? Read below how you can help.

The website www.biomassazaak.nl is part of a large-scale attack by a large number of national and international organizations on the paid pro biomass lobby in the Netherlands. We prosecute people who are responsible for ensuring that your tax money is used to cut down the forests to be burned in the more than 600 biomass plants in the Netherlands at the expense of your health, nature, the climate and thus the future. We are the co-founders of the National Federation against Biomass power plants , the Dutch Forest Union and the Dutch Climate Coalition and host the websites www.the-fab.org and www.biomassmurder.org.
