Chinese Firm to Test Carbon-Capture Technology with Chinese, Australian Governments Assistance


China Huaneng Group, a large electricity generation firm, has initiated a pilot project in collaboration with Chinese and Australian research bodies to capture CO2 from coal-fired plants. This project will be first scheme to test the feasibility of post-combustion capture (PCC) in China, which has the worlds largest consumption of coal-fired energy.

Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) states this can reduce CO2 emissions from coal plants by 85% or even more. David Brockway of CSIRO says the project has potential to capture up to 3,000 tonnes of CO2 per annum. CSIRO also mentioned a larger project may be launched after this one.
