CAPPCCO (Chinese Advanced Power Plant Carbon Capture Options)

The CAPPCCO project aims to:

  • Develop a carbon capture characteristics database for existing & planned plants
  • Develop and assess capture options for planned new pulverised coal (PC) plants
  • Develop and assess capture options for existing PC plants
  • Investigate special issues for adding carbon capture to Chinese power plants e.g. water requirements, cooling requirements, coal properties, capture performance under variable Chinese climatic conditions including likely performance of next-generation pollutant control technologies
  • Investigate options for financing capture ready and capture retrofit
