U.S. BECCS by Drax
Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) by Drax will be one of the largest carbon removal projects in the U.S.
- Removing 2 million tons (Mt) of carbon from the atmosphere
- Whilst generating 2 terawatt hours (TWh) of reliable, continuous, renewable power
Engineered carbon removal technologies are crucial to achieving long-term climate goals, and BECCS is the most scalable and affordable of these technologies that can be deployed rapidly. BECCS by Drax will be the first at-scale 24/7 renewable energy facility with carbon removals in the U.S. and will play a key role in achieving a clean energy grid by 2035 while also providing high integrity carbon removals.
The high integrity carbon removals from BECCS offer a permanent solution, which can complement companies’ actions to decarbonize directly, and enable them to meet their net zero goals.
