Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate

Brief description:

The Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate was set up in 2006 comprising a membership of the national governments of Australia, India, Japan, China, South Korea, Canada and the US. Its eight action plans included the Action Plan on Cleaner Fossil Energy, which identified 13 project proposals for exploring clean coal and gas technologies.

Australia chaired the partnership and was the main financial contributor, pledging A$200 million over five years towards the so-called AP6 projects – the Callide Oxyfuel demonstration in Queensland was considered a flagship project. It concluded its work in early 2011, with a number of its projects continuing and/or being transferred to other agencies.

The AP6 projects included:

- A$8 million for assessing post-combustion capture for coal-fired power stations in AP6 countries
- A$5 million for CO2 enhanced coal-bed methane
- A$3 million for CCS programmes
- A$2 million for ultra-clean coal
- A$500,000 for oxyfuel combustion technology
