Analysis of CO2 emission in Guangdong Province, China

15th October 2013

Topic(s): Capacity development, Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), Nuclear energy

There is an agreement reached in China that CCS should be regarded as an important backup low-carbon technology worth more preliminary research. However, the application of CCS in Guangdong depends on the energy usage and model of the province. Therefore an analysis of Guangdong's energy usage and CO2 emission is helpful to decide whether Guangdong needs to explore utilising CCS technology.

In this report, we first assessed the energy consumption and CO2 emission status of the Guangdong Province based on published data. Then the emission characteristics and trends of major point sources are analysed. Finally the source to sink match analysis is carried out. All these will provide bases for the feasibility study of developing CCS in Guangdong and for compiling the CCS development roadmap for Guangdong.
