AEA Technology, a leading environment and energy consultancy, has been appointed to run the first 18-month phase of the UK-China Near Zero Emissions Coal (NZEC) Initiative.

This initiative is a key element of the EU-China Partnership on Climate Change and aims to demonstrate coal fired power generation with Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in China.

AEA will manage the first phase of the NZEC project, which is being supported by up to £3.5m of funding from Defra and BERR.

It is expected that the project will culminate with the building of a demonstration plant in China, to be commissioned by 2014.

In addition to AEA, the project will involve a consortium of key industrial and academic partners. The UK partners are Air Products, ALSTOM Power, BP, British Geological Survey (BGS), Doosan Babcock, Heriot Watt University, Imperial College London and Shell.

Within China, the Administrative Centre for China's Agenda 21 (ACCA21) will co-ordinate the input of the 20 Chinese partner organizations.
