TOKYO -- Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has ramped up construction of carbon capture plants in markets beyond Japan, refining technologies it has worked on for three decades as the fight against climate change intensifies.

The Japanese company began a trial run last month of such a plant at a biomass power station operated by the U.K.-based Drax Group in North Yorkshire. If successful, the combination of plant-based fuel and carbon capture could enable negative net emissions, Mitsubishi Heavy said.
