Yulin City

The US company Dow and The Shenhua Group, China’s largest coal producer, are planning to build and operate an integrated carbon capture and coal-to-liquids (CTL) complex in Yulin city in the Shaanxi province of China.

The joint venture would capture between 5 and 10 million tonnes per annum of CO2, which would be transported by pipeline for storage in onshore depleted reservoirs. Proposals are still in the early stages and options for potential pipeline routes and storage sites are being explored.

The project has the potential to support the continued exploitation of large-scale coal and natural gas deposits in the Yulin area – which also has obvious economic and energy production advantages.

The venture partners say it also aims to support China’s drive to conserve resources and produce energy in more sustainable ways. In early 2011, the country committed to a national carbon intensity reduction target of 17 per cent and moves to cut energy intensity by 16 per cent by 2015.


No finance details or estimated project costs are currently available.


The project application report was submitted to the Chinese government towards the end of 2010. Pre-feasibility studies are underway for the capture facility, and the project partners are currently completing and submitting reports towards obtaining necessary state approvals.
