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

The project will incorporate 23 Siemens-Gamesa SG 5.0-145 wind turbines on 107.5-meter tall towers and generate sufficient green energy for 34,000 homes while saving 298,500 metric tpy of CO2 emissions.
