Look again. A wood-fired power plant

The picture shows a power plant that looks like any other fossil fuel burning facility. That makes sense because the Drax power station in the United Kingdom used to be a coal-fired plant and one of Britain’s biggest polluters. However, today, the same plant is fired by wood chips and has turned into Europe’s largest decarbonisation project. Converting a power plant from coal to biomass fuel has never been done on this scale anywhere in the world.
