CCS: Options for Energy Intensive Industry


‌The world needs increasing energy supplies to sustain its economic growth and development. But energy resources are under pressure and CO2 emissions from our current energy consumption already threaten our climate. What options do energy intensive industries have to meet CO2 emissions reduction targets while also considering energy security; can carbon capture and storage (CCS) provide an option for some industries?  The International Energy Agency (IEA), in co-operation with the Ministry of Science and Technology’s Administrative Centre for China’s Agenda 21 (ACCA21), will jointly host a workshop on December 5-6, to discuss these options and hear from key industry stakeholders.

The event, which is the second in a series of workshops organised by the IEA and MOST (ACCA21), initiated in October 2012, aimed to further clarify the role and potential for CCS in industry applications both in China and globally. This workshop continued to provide a platform for international and Chinese experts to further discuss status of industrial CCS applications, options and implications for scaling-up CCS across a range of industries including cement, steel, bioenergy, chemicals and others. Building upon the previous workshop, this event focused more specifically on technical and policy options in the cement sector and engaged cement sector stakeholders in exploring these options and efforts aimed at reducing CO2 emissions in the sector.
