Critics call bullsh*t on the negative emissions claim:

Drax’s overall plan hasn’t been completed, though, and company officials have assured that – in the long term – the greenhouse gas emissions will be reversed. This is promised to take place largely with the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) plan, which is still awaiting government approval later this year. If the go-ahead is given, the £500-million ($777 million) White Rose project will kick off and start capturing as much as 2 million tonnes of CO2 annually starting in 2020. The emissions would then be sent down a 165-km (102-mile) pipeline to be buried under the North Sea. In addition to the CCS, Drax plans to plant new forests and purchase credits to offset any emissions that are not captured.
