DRAX POWER STATION TO BURN BIOMASS WITH COAL

Willow cuttings and peanut shells are among the materials to be burnt along with coal. This article gives the details. Apart from the large cost of converting the burners to take the new fuel, there is also concern about all the tar being released. Apparently they are also going to attempt to capture the CO2 emissions. It sounds like they are going to produce some very expensive electricity - and we are all going to pay for it!
