Drax to trial biomass CCS

Drax has announced plans to pilot a bioenergy carbon capture and storage (BECCS) project. Unlike previous CCS projects Drax has been involved with, this is an early pilot for a new technology. It will examine the potential of a new form of carbon capture: post-combustion on biomass, rather than coal.
