Hazelwood is the dirtiest power station in Australia, possibly the world. It has been the target of environmental campaigns for over a decade. It was built in the 1960s with the expectation of being closed in the 1990s – but has just kept on polluting. 

After almost half a century of burning coal, Hazelwood’s time is well and truly up.
