Biomass Power Station Drax

Drax - a Biomass Power Station
A project has been launched at Drax, Britain's largest power station, that aims to replace 10 per cent of the coal burned there with biomass. Materials such as wood chips, sunflower husks or grasses are to be mixed with coal and burned to generate electricity. It is calculated that this 'co-firing' technology could reduce the power station's annual carbon dioxide emissions by several million tonnes.
Drax generates some 7 per cent of Britain's electricity and is one of the country's biggest emitters of greenhouse gases.
