    UK's Drax to double biomass production capacity, sales by 2030

    British power generator Drax aims to double its sustainable biomass production capacity and sales of the product by 2030, to capitalise on increasing demand from Europe and Asia as countries look to move away from coal. Drax, whose power stations provide around 6% of Britain's electricity, said it was targeting biomass pellet production of 8 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) by 2030, compared with current production of 4 Mtpa. Strategic capital investment is expected to be around 3 billion pounds between 2022 and 2030, Drax said, as the new target will require over 3 Mt of new biomass pellet production capacity and other carbon capture facilities.
