Australia and China Collaborate on PCC Plant

Article Type: Reprinted

Australia and China have signed a partnership agreement that will pave the way for the installation of a post combustion capture (PCC) plant in Beijing next year.

Signed by CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) Energy Technology Chief Executive, Dr Geoff Garrett, and Mr Li Xiaopeng, the President of China's state-owned energy enterprise, the China Huaneng Group, the agreement will see the plant installed at the Huaneng Beijing Co-generation Power Plant.

The installation forms part of the Asia Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate initiative (AP6) which first announced funding for PCC research in November 2006.

CSIRO has been working on collaborative projects with China for over 30 years, in areas such as minerals and mining technology, forestry, environmental sustainability, and crop science.

The AP6 program for PCC also includes a pilot plant installation at Delta Electricity's Munmorah power station on the NSW Central Coast, with additional Australian sites currently under negotiation for PCC installation and demonstration.
