The Scottish Government’s green watchdog launched an investigation into rises in toxic pollution from two wood production plants in Stirlingshire and Ayrshire.
More than 400 industrial sites across Scotland have been officially damned as “unsatisfactory” on pollution.
Campaigners in the Scottish Borders are raising growing concerns about a proposal for quarry which has an Ineos ethylene gas pipeline running through it.
A plant run by the fossil fuel multinational, Ineos, at Grangemouth has been officially condemned as “very poor” for pollution.
The petrochemical multinational, Ineos, is by far the largest climate polluter in Scotland, according to the latest official data.
Ineos has been underestimating climate pollution from its chemical plants at Grangemouth since 2016, according to the Scottish Government’s green watchdog.
Over a hundred campaigners are asking the Scottish and UK governments not to bail out the petrochemical giant, Ineos, during the coronavirus crisis.
Ineos is attempting to resurrect plans to drill for underground gas in central Scotland, provoking alarm from communities and environmentalists.
New fossil fuel developments planned across Scotland will lock the country into polluting the climate for decades and help “fry the planet”, campaigners are warning.
