Plumbers Dream

Norm: On the outskirts of Pécs stands this massive power plant. For decades it was a coal powered plant. Coal was found in abundance in the nearby Mecsek hills, however it was later discovered that radioactivity of the coal was 20-100 times higher than the worldwide average. Those mines have all since been closed. The radioactive coal slag from the plant was then spread out in surrounding fields and covered with soil.
The plant is now powered by gas produced by log burning referred to as Biomass and producing electricity to many towns and cities in the region.  Posted by Picasa
