MGT Power is currently developing certified
sustainable forestry operations. Unlike first generation biofuel
feedstocks, these can be established on disused and marginal
land, and are known as Short Rotation Forestry.
MGT Power is
committed to sustainability and we welcome efforts to ensure
biomass makes only the most positive contribution. To this
end we have drawn up a set of sustainability guiding principles.
