HRL - Burning Coal at Three Minutes to Midnight

Reports

The Corporate Watch report on HRL Ltd, in conjunction with Friends of the  Earth, 'Burning Coal at Three 
Minutes to Midnight' is now available. The report sheds light on the government grants and
business interests behind the proposed HRL coal fire power plant in the Latrobe Valley of Victoria.

With $150 million of state and federal government grants, this new coal fire power station has
benefited from a large injection of taxpayer money to continue Victoria's reliance on coal based
electricity.

The proposed HRL coal fire power plant is one of the first of the so-called 'clean coal 'power plants
scheduled to be built, and if allowed to go ahead will expand Australia's reliance on polluting fossil
fuel sources of energy such as coal, to the detriment of the clean, green renewable energy solutions
available to us.
