Biomass is the alternative choice for today; a modern and highly efficient renewable energy source.
Using the latest engineering and technology, existing power stations such as Drax can be upgraded from coal, a fossil fuel of the past, to biomass, a renewable energy source of the future, without taking all of the existing power stations off the grid.
As part of Drax Group, we source the majority of our power from Drax Power Station, which which is a predominantly renewable energy generator. By upgrading and converting some of its existing generation units to use compressed wood pellets instead of coal, Drax has become the single largest renewable energy generator in the UK.
Using the latest technology, Drax processes and compresses low grade wood into small high-density pellets, which are then transported in ships and specially designed trains built to move millions of pellets with minimal cost and environmental impact.
