Carbon Capture and Storage: Opportunities in Energy-Intensive Industry


The 2011 IEA-UNIDO roadmap places significant emphasis on China to deliver on industrial CCS, with an important focus on the steel and cement sectors among other key sectors. It identifies the need for near term analysis to further clarify overall potential for CCS application and CO2 emissions abatement at specific industry emissions sources in a regional context. To identify the current state of regional understanding of CCS applications in key sectors, and identify key challenges and opportunities for CCS application in these industries, the International Energy Agency and the Ministry of Science and Technology jointly initiated a series of workshops focused on CCS in energy intensive industries in China. This process seeks to bring relevant Chinese stakeholders and international experts to the table to share perspectives and outlook for the development of relevant mitigation options in these critical sectors in China. This dialogue includes iron and steel, cement and high-purity sectors such as gas processing, biofuels, H2 production among others. This initial workshop seeked to engage more specifically with sectoral stakeholders in China’s iron and steel and cement sectors. This series seeks to enhance capacity development and international efforts in partnerships with relevant industry initiatives and stakeholders to incorporate findings and synthesize a workshop report to identify areas for subsequent analysis on Carbon capture and storage in an energy intensive industry portfolio of options in China. This process will facilitate the progress towards an inventory of relevant technologies and options and consider suitability for mitigation options including CCS and identify key technical and other barriers.
