British Steel is set to supply power giant Drax with 13,000 tonnes of steel to build world leading carbon capture infrastructure. An agreement has been signed by the two huge regional industrial operators to explore the opportunities around the emission-busting project. Steel required for the major infrastructure project would include beams produced at British Steel’s Scunthorpe and Teesside works.Work could get under way as soon as 2024, with the energy company planning to source up to 80% of the materials and services it needs for the project from British businesses.Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage would complete a huge transformation at Drax, taking it from a reliance on fossil fuels to a carbon negative position as a sustainable biomass-fuelled plant and feedstock producer. Through the partnership, Drax and British Steel aim to support efforts to meet the UK’s climate targets and level up the North, while supporting skills within the steel sector. A total of eight million tonnes of CO2 a year could be captured from 2030, making it the largest carbon capture and storage project in the world.
