DRAX would be a good name for a Bond villain. But its so much worse. They used to burn coal. Now they burn biomass.

And it is dirtier.

emissions of particulates from the site [DRAX] were 897 tonnes last year compared to 382 tonnes in 2008.”

The power station uses about seven million tonnes of biomass or wood pellets a year, much of it imported, particularly from the US”

“Last year, Drax received subsidies of £558 million for its biomass operation, a figure that is expected to rise to around £800 million this year as the third biomass unit comes on stream.”
