Lianyungang IGCC

Brief description:


Country: China

Project type: Capture Storage

Scale: Large

Status: Cancelled

Year of operation 2015
Industry: Coal Power Plant

Capture method: Pre-combustion

New or retrofit: New
Transport of CO2 by: Pipeline

Type of storage: Aquifers

Volume: I million tonnes/CO2



A clean energy innovation park on the Jiangsu coastland of China is to feature a 1200MW IGCC power plant with plans to incorporate carbon capture and storage. The facility, which would also co-produce syngas and chemicals, will be built alongside a 1300MW ultra-supercritical pulverised coal power plant.

Up to 1 million tonnes per annum of CO2 would be captured from the flue gases of both facilities, and would then be transported by 100km pipeline to Binhai in the same province for injection into onshore deep saline formations. It could also be piped 200km to the North Jiangsu oilfield for use in EOR projects.

In 2009, China’s State Council approved a development plan for the Jiangsu coastline, which includes construction of the Clean Energy Innovation Industrial Park to promote the development of industrial-scale, low-carbon facilities. This project is considered a key feature of the park. Its development also marks R&D collaboration between China and the US.


No project costs or funding details are available.


A pre-feasibility study has been completed and the feasibility study is expected to be completed by June 2011. The plant was planned to be operational by 2015, subject to government approvals, but instead the project was cancelled due to little activity in 2014.
