Drax and MHI announce new biomass CCS pilot

Implementing bioenergy with carbon capture and storage at Drax could deliver 16 million tonnes of negative emissions every year

Drax teams up with Econic to use captured carbon in plastic production

Econic Technologies has developed a catalyst that allows CO2 to replace up to 50% of the traditional fossil fuel-based materials used in polymer production

Drax becomes ‘world’s first’ bioenergy plant to capture carbon

The £400k pilot is using C-Capture’s innovative technology to capture a tonne of CO2 a day from the gases produced when power is generated using biomass
