Will Gardiner comments on CCUS business models consultation

Drax Group CEO reacts to Government’s carbon capture consultation

CCUS incubation area, Drax Power Station, July 2019

“I welcome the Government’s publication on CCUS today.  Now is the time to make this happen if we are to meet the UK’s net zero targets by 2050, and reduce global warming. Only today Death Valley recorded the highest temperature ever recorded on earth, at 54.4C/ 130F.  We must harness the potential of CCUS technology where the UK can lead the world. I am pleased the Government sees BECCS as a pathway for negative emissions. I look forward to working with the Government to make BECCS happen”.
