Capture and storage of carbon dioxide in China moves a step closer

Using carbon capture and storage technology to harness emissions from Chinese power stations moved a step closer this week with an international meeting in Beijing.
The meeting brought together the main Chinese and European carbon capture and storage research communities and experts.Hosted as a workshop, the meeting was a follow up to the memorandum of understanding reached with the Chinese government on near-zero emissions power generation technology. It is intended that this will encourage the development of technology allowing the capture and underground storage of carbon dioxide emitted from coal-fired power stations, a matter of potential significance in the fight against climate change.Officials said that the meeting had strengthened the links between the Chinese, European and international carbon capture and storage community and had generated a road map for technology development on CCS in China.Related links:Today's top stories
