New technology which aims to cut emissions by capturing carbon dioxide is to be tested at a North Yorkshire power station.
The 12-month project will get under way at Drax, near Selby, in the autumn and will examine whether new carbon capture technology will work with Drax's biomass flue gases.
The site will work with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to test the technology, which it's thought could capture about 300kg of carbon dioxide every day.
Drax CEO Will Gardiner says the move will take the firm "closer to achieving our world-leading ambition to be a carbon negative company by 2030".
Meanwhile, Nigel Adams, Conservative MP for Selby and Ainsty and Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Department for International Development, said the move was "an exciting collaboration".
"It has the potential to further the development of technology which could help the UK achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and contribute to the post-Covid economic recovery," Mr Adams added.
