Quartz – Britain’s Biggest CO2 Emitter is Building Europe’s First of a Kind “Negative Emissions” Plant

The Drax power station, Britain’s largest CO2 emitter, is launching a trial of “negative emissions” technology.

Drax has six power-generating units. Until 2013, they all burned coal but three of them have since been converted to burn wood. The switch-up came after the UK government’s big crackdown on coal power, after the 2008 Climate Change Act legally committed the country to steeply reduce its emissions.
