From a DRAX news release
The findings were revealed in analysis from Oxford Economics looking at the economic impact of Drax’s UK operations, which includes Selby-based Drax Power Station.
The power station, which employs around 900 people, has converted four of its six generating units to use compressed wood pellets and generated 15% of the country’s renewable electricity in 2017 – enough for four million households. Since transforming the power station to use biomass instead of coal it has become the largest decarbonisation project in Europe.
If you are burning wood instead of coal, you aren’t decarbonising.
One thought on “I’m Pretty Sure Wood Has Carbon In It”
Biomass is a scam. There’s a plant down the street from here that gives us air quality warnings all the time, and they ship the pellets over the Europe to make “clean” power.
