DRAX, Bechtel Partner on Bioenergy/CCS (Ind. Report)
DRAX, Bechtel
Date: 2021-06-07
In the UK, Yorkshire-based DRAX Group reports it is partnering with Reston, Virginia-based U.S. engineering giant Bechtel up to identify opportunities and to construct new bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) power plants around the world, primarily in North America and Western Europe.

DRAX presently has a pilot BECCS project at its power station in Yorkshire. Bechtel will study potential regions for new BECCS plants and how to optimise plant design for maximum efficiency and lowest cost.

BECCS is a negative emissions technology which extracts bioenergy from biomass and then captures and stores the carbon dioxide but is not yet at commercial scale. (Source: DRAX, PR, 3 June, 2021) Contact: Bechtel, www.bechtel.com; DRAX, Will Gardiner, CEO, +44 (0) 1757 618381, www.drax.com
