The first bio-energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) pilot project of its kind in the world at Drax Power Station is now capturing carbon dioxide, according to the power company. Drax said that the project could enable its power station in North Yorkshire to become the world’s first negative emissions power station. The scheme uses technology developed by Leeds-based firm C-Capture and can capture around a tonne of CO2 a day. Drax has invested £400,000 in the pilot, which it said could be the first of several projects undertaken at the power station to deliver a “rapid, lower cost” demonstration of BECCS.
