Low-cost carbon-capture project sparks interest
Date:19 Jan 2011
The Shidongkou No. 2 Power Plant outside Shanghai, China, has hosted a parade of foreign visitors in recent months, from academics and industry officials to US energy secretary Steven Chu. All have had one question on their minds: have Chinese engineers turned a corner on carbon-capture technology?
That question occupies a small but significant place in a package of clean-energy research initiatives expected to be announced this week as Chinese President Hu Jintao meets US President Barack Obama in Washington DC from 19 January.
