Act now to stop CBM at Airth!

Dart Energy has progressed its plans for the first commercial production of coalbed methane (CBM) in Scotland by submitting planning applications to Falkirk and Stirling Council for 14 new wells and a network of pipelines at Airth.

It is of great concern that this project could be developed before a comprehensive review of the full life cycle environmental and health impacts of unconventional gas extraction has been undertaken, and before environmental regulations have caught up with the new technologies proposed.

Act now to stop CBM at Airth by objecting to both Falkirk and Stirling Councils.
