Shenhua Group Developing China’s First Carbon Capture and Storage Project at its CTL Plant
07 April 2009
China Daily. Shenhua Group, China’s largest coal miner, is developing the country’s first carbon capture and storage (CCS) project at its coal-to-liquids plant in Ordos.
The CCS project will be applied to Shenhua’s 1-million-ton direct coal-to-liquids plant in Ordos, Inner Mongolia autonomous region, which launched trial operation at the end of last year.
Storage measures, including geological storage, are being considered for the CCS project, which will be put into full operation in one or two years, according to a statement on the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission’s website.
Shenhua earlier this year said it would triple the capacity of its direct coal-to-liquids (CTL) project to three million tons a year once its technology has tested sound in trial operations.
I started looking into the Direct Carbon Fuel Cells that E.P. has been talking about. That is a technology worth developing.
You can process wood chips with torrefaction and create a coal like low moisture product that is easy to store and transport. They you can gasify that product to produce bio fuels.
The char left over is carbon. You can return that to the farm field for better soil or you can put it in DCFC to generate even more energy.

Is China going to lead in the application of those (modified-cleaner) energy technologies?
USA and Australia (+ many other countries) with huge coal reserves should take note and board the train.

NO, this project dose not star now! The CTL project Plant in ordos only have one direct line and a indirect line which is more small capability.
