China

Due to the high level of CCS activity in China, the UKCCSRC International Engagement Strategy names it as a priority country with which to focus engagement activities. 

 

Guangdong Province

In 2013, UKCCSRC, Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS), Guangdong Low-carbon Technology and Industry Research Centre (GDLRC) and the Clean Fossil Energy Development Institute (CFEDI) signed a ten-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to support the setting up of the Guangdong CCUS Centre in China. The signing was witnessed by Governor Zhu Xiaodan of Guangdong Province, People’s Republic of China, and Minister Greg Barker of the UK’s former Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), now known as BEIS.
 

Before the signing, two open UKCCSRC meetings took place in Edinburgh and London about CCS Developments in Guandong Province, China and the UK. The agenda and presentations from the events can be found here
