Construction Starts On First Carbon Capture And Storage Facility In China

July 8, 2010 | Print | Email Email | Comments | Category: Energy & Cleantech

China National Petroleum Corporation has started construction of the nation's first carbon capture and storage project.

The project, which is on the site of Shenhua Group's coal-to-liquid project in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, involves an investment of CNY210 million and will be operational by the end of 2010.

It will be able to capture and store 100,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. Annual capacity will later be increased to one million tons and three million tons in two phases.

In November 2009, the Chinese government announced that it aims to reduce the ratio of carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP in 2020 by 40% to 45% of the level in 2005.

    Chilling CO2 to -60degrees pumping it 2kilometreinto the earth to +160degrees and expecting it to remain frozen forever stable and not explode up fissues as past models proved is a danger to society!3million tonne not likely. Sell your home business now get out!
    For the same investment we plant out 100,000hectares of desert reversal C4 sinks build soil soil-carbon and elements, grow Food Fodder Forestry FFF, Sequester 250,000 tonnes CO2 local economy started and with Carbon Trading income we repeat process every year thereafter 4 yrs 1,ooo,ooohectares feeding China and no more sand storms. Take a vote! So do we want engineering theory or replicate Nature stop sand migration. One assumes the engineers have excellent insurance and Bankers backing this dis-proven geo death!
