Daqing power plant

China Datang Corporation and Alstom have joined forces to build and operate two CCS demonstration projects in China.

The two projects are located near China’s two biggest oilfields – Daqing in Heilongjiang province and Dongying in Shandong province, which will provide a cost-effective solution to transport and storage by using captured CO2 for enhanced oil recovery.

The 350 MW coal-fired Daqing power plant will use Alstom’s oxy-firing capture technology, while the partners are yet to decide on either oxy-firing, chilled ammonia or advanced amines for the 1000MW Dongying coal-fired power plant.

The Daqing CCS demonstration project could be the first large-scale CCS demonstration project in China and Asia, and both projects will have the capacity to capture 1 million tonnes of CO2 per annum.

The project also aims to develop the most cost-effective CCS demo plant.


Both CCS projects are scheduled for operation in 2015. The partners signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the two projects in September 2011 and, in November, signed a feasibility study agreement for the Daqing project.
