The potential of Carbon Capture and storage in China.

China currently has over 900 gigawatts (GW) of installed coal-fired power capacity, representing almost 50% of the global total, and had nearly 200 GW under construction at last count. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions while expanding electricity use in China’s growing economy is likely not achievable without the early retirement of many coal plants or implementing carbon capture and storage (CCS) retrofits. CCS presents a significant opportunity to match energy security and climate goals while avoiding cancelling or scrapping otherwise productive generating capacity.
