Glasgow has been confirmed as the host city of COP26.

A Drax spokesperson said:

“COP26 is an opportunity to show the world the UK’s ambitions for a net zero economy. If Drax scales up its ground-breaking bioenergy with carbon capture pilot, it could become the world’s first negative emissions power station, and the ‘anchor’ for the UK’s first zero carbon industrial cluster in the Humber region – creating clean growth, new jobs and export opportunities.

“Making the transition towards a zero-carbon economy is in everyone’s interests – it is fitting that COP26 could take place in such a forward-thinking city as Glasgow; a world leading hub for research, science and innovation.”
