Guangdong Carbon Capture Center Opens in China

29 June 2019

Guangdong Carbon Capture Testing Platform Project (GCCT), is the first multi-technology international carbon capture technology testing platform in Asia, designed and constructed GEDI.The opening of the facility marks a new stage of carbon capture technology research in Guangdong, which is of milestone for China in promoting carbon dioxide emission reduction and handling climate change.

The project consists of a flue gas pre-treatment system, amine absorption and membrane separation carbon capture system, compression and purification system and several auxiliary systems. It is capable of capturing about 20,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year which can be used for food processing and industrial utilization after purification.

Together with the US National Carbon Capture Center (NCCC) and Norway Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM), these three major carbon capture technology testing bases represent the largest initiatives in the world.
