UK electricity generator Drax commissioned a bioenergy carbon capture and storage pilot plant at its power station in North Yorkshire on Monday, the company said in a note.
The six-month project is expected to capture 1 ton of carbon dioxide per day from gases produced when generating electricity from biomass. The first CO2 is expected to be captured in the coming weeks.
The company is investing £400,000 ($514,000) in the pilot project, which will involve the participation of UK company C-Capture.
