DRAX Biomass Slashes CO2 Emissions by 90 pct Plus (Int'l. Report)
DRAX
Date: 2021-09-20
In the UK, Yorkshire-based woody biomass power producer DRAX Group reports it has cut the carbon emissions from its once coal-fired power generation by over 90 pct since 2012 when it began its switch from coal to sustainable biomass and hydro. The facility is now one of Europe's lowest carbon intensity power generators, and moving closer to achieving its goal of becoming carbon negative by 2030, according to the company release.

Since deploying Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Ctorage (BECCS) at its Yorkshire, Teeside power station, DRAX is set to go even further -- generating the negative emissions needed to meet the UK's net-zero climate target.

DRAX presently generates 12 pct of the UK's renewable electricity -- sufficient power for 5 million or more homes while supporting the deployment of intermittent renewables such as wind and solar. (Source: DRAX, Website PR, 9 Sept., 2021) DRAX, Will Gardiner, CEO, +44 (0) 1757 618381, www.drax.com
