‘ “Biomass” means fuel used in a generating station where—

(that is to say, material which is, or is derived directly or indirectly from,


plant matter, animal matter, funghi or algae), and



if fossil fuel forms part of it—



the fossil fuel is present following a process—



to which the relevant material has been subject, and



the undertaking of which has caused the fossil fuel to be


present in, on or with that material even though that was


not the object of the process; or



it is waste and the fossil fuel forming part of it was not added to


it with a view to its being used as a fuel.



“Qualifying combined heat and power generating station”means a


combined heat and power generating station which has been accredited
