The British Geological Survey (BGS) attended the launch of the Near Zero Emissions Coal (NZEC) Phase 1 study in Beijing.

The aim of the study is to look at the feasibility of building coal fired power plants in China fitted with CO2 capture and storage.

NZEC implements a large scale Near Zero Emissions Coal demonstration in China as agreed at the EU-China Summit in September 2005.

The geotechnical aspects of the research will involve selecting strategic sedimentary basins to be mapped for potential regional CO2 storage assessments, followed by more detailed assessment of sites potentially suitable for a demonstration of CO2 storage in China linked to a demonstration of CO2 capture from a coal-fired power station.

BGS and the China University of Petroleum (Beijing) co-ordinate the geological storage part of the study, which also includes working in close partnership with Heriot Watt University, BP & Shell (UK), the China University of Petroleum (HuaDong), Institute of Geology and Geophysics Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Tsinghua University, PetroChina, JilinOilfield and China United Coalbed Methane Corp (CUCBM).

NZEC is funded by the UK Government through Defra and DBERR and is co-ordinated by AEA Energy & Environment (UK) and ACCA21 (China).
