Biomass Boost for Drax Power Station


9:11am 9th December 2013

Drax power station will be unveiled as Britain's biggest green power station this morning.

It'll be opened by Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Ed Davey. The minister will tour the biomass site and will officially open the facilities by giving the first train a go signal, unloading the first wagon and unveiling a plaque.

The facilities include biomass handling, distribution and storage facilities and are part of the power station's move from coal to biomass energy production. Biomass energy is created by converting plants to energy by burning them or using chemicals.
