13th Five-Year Special Program Plan for Scientific and Technological Innovation to Address Climate Change
As part of China’s 13th Five-Year Plan, the Special Program Plan for Scientific and Technological Innovation to Address Climate Change (Guo Ke Fa She (2017) No.120) was issued by the Ministry of Science and Technology, along with the China Meteorological Administration of Ministry of Environmental Protection in 2017. The Plan outlines technical objectives to develop a variety of key industry greenhouse gas emissions reduction technologies, including large-scale, low-cost carbon capture and storage, with an aim to enhance the international competitiveness of China’s low-carbon industry and support the country’s goal of achieving a peak in emissions around 2030. More specifically, the Plan outlines a variety of key technology goals related to achieving large-scale, low-cost CCUS, including: improving material performance and energy efficiency in CO2 capture technology; establishing intelligent source-sink matching to improve pipeline transportation; studying carbon capture water resource constraints; developing CO2 long-distance pipeline safety assurance technology; developing CO2 utilization technologies; studying storage technology; and working to coordinate CCUS technology integration, including combining the Shenhua CO2 capture and storage project to build a CO2 monitoring and safety assessment platform.
