Repositioning CCUS for China’s Net-Zero Future

5th September 2022

Topic(s): China

China has committed to achieving carbon neutrality before 2060, representing a serious pledge from top-level leadership while providing an enormous task to realise in just forty years. If CCUS is to play the intended critical role in China’s net-zero effort, more work needs to be done to achieve the technology suite’s potential.

This report reviews the status of carbon targets, examines the trends and challenges for CCUS in China,
and looks at the push across low-carbon industrial transformation. The report identifies a potential role for international cooperation in accelerating the commercial deployment of CCUS in China. Through knowledge sharing and joint projects, international cooperation can enhance public acceptance, close technological gaps, realize broader collaboration, and reduce costs and risks.
