This event was organised by China's Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and the Internation Energy Agency Working Party on Fossil Fuels (WPFF).

In June 2010, MOST hosted the IEA WPFF’s 58th meeting in Beijing. Following bilateral discussions, MOST and IEA WPFF agreed to co-operate in areas relating to CCS. First steps would be to engage in a process to develop more concrete topics for co-operation. It was further agreed that a joint workshop would be held in China around one year later to review progress. While arranging the workshop, it became clear that it could also provide an opportunity to raise awareness and to share experiences of other bilateral and multilateral CCS activities with China.

Carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is a sub-category of CCS. At present, the cost of CCS is a major obstacle to its development and to its deployment at large scale. Utilisation of captured CO2 offers a means to offset some of the costs of the overall process.

The workshop was sponsored by the IEA. Many thanks for the smooth operation and successful outcome of the workshop must go to The Administrative Centre for China’s Agenda 21 (ACCA21), who were responsible for handling all arrangements in China.
