Britain to help China with carbon capture

UK engineers are to advise China on carbon capture technology, Prime Minister Gordon Brown said last week.

During his visit to the country Brown said he had signed an agreement for "increased collaboration and co-operation between China and the UK on carbon capture storage (CCS)."

This means informing China on the progress of efforts to develop post-combustion CCS, said Parsons Brinckerhoff engineering director Mike Wheeler.

The consultant is technical advisor for the competition to come up with a carbon capture technology which is being, run by the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.

He was visiting China last week to delivering a presentation on CCS to Chinese conference delegates.

"Post combustion technology is highly relevant for the Chinese given their large installed base of super critical and conventional coal-fired power stations," said Wheeler.
