Britain’s Biggest Carbon Emitter Power Plant on its Way to Become Completely Green
Drax power station, the largest power station of Britain, was once known as one of the biggest polluters of Britain – the one that emitted the largest amount of carbon dioxide owing to its coal-fired furnaces, is rapidly turning making its move to being green.
The six huge electricity-producing units of Drax are driven by six giant furnaces, which were all earlier dependent on coal. Recently, two of these six units were completely converted from coal to biomass and a third unit will also be 1
