ADB and China Announce Road Map for CCS in China
Wednesday, December 2, 2015
The ADB and The Chinese Government used COP21 to announce the publication of a new report; A Roadmap for the Demonstration and Deployment of CCS in China. The project, led by the Department of Climate Change of National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) of China and managed by ADB, aims to inform decision-makers on about China's readiness to use the CCS technology, as well as about the urgency to expand its deployment rapidly.
It proposes a detailed timeline for China to gradually deploy CCS technology from 2015 to 2050, which incorporates the priority emission cuts targets in China's 13th Five-Year Plan.
The long-term goal of the roadmap, expected from 2030 onwards, is the projected CCS deployment path that will lead to a cumulative avoidance of CO2 emissions.
To achieve that, the roadmap recommends China demonstrate low-cost CO2 capture in coal-chemical plants and at one or two coal-fired power plants, and to carry out intensive research to overcome high costs and other hurdles in coal-fired power plants.
Wider deployment of CCS would enable the China to cut up to 90% of CO2 emissions from its fossil fuel-based power and industrial plants, according to the roadmap. The accumulated CO2 reductions would amount to 10 million–20 million tons by 2020, 160 million tons by 2030, and 15 billion tons by 2050.
The report is the culmination of a Technical Assistance Project funded by the ADB that started in July 2012. The full report can be found at:
