A picture of "residues" at the Lockerbie biomass power stations in Scotland

"The plant, which is being part-funded by an £18m grant from the national lottery, will initially burn forest residue – sawdust, branches and offcuts – from a nearby sawmill, but E.ON hopes that local farmers will switch to fast-growing willow to provide part of the plant’s fuel."
