China’s dependency on coal fuels the country’s phenomenal economic growth but at a major cost to the
country’s air and water quality, ultimately threatening human health and the country’s continued economic
growth. The Chinese government’s efforts to put China onto a cleaner, low carbon development path have
been substantial; however China’s pollution and greenhouse gas emissions continue to grow. In an attempt
to develop its own advanced coal generation technologies to improve the country’s air quality and energy
efficiency, the Chinese government is investing heavily in gasification and other technologies that can be
employed in carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) applications. This investment has turned China
into a global laboratory for CCS pilot projects, attracting foreign governments, multilateral institutions,
nongovernmental organizations, and business partners. China’s leadership in developing CCS technology
could ultimately help lower its costs and promote its commercialization globally, representing a major step
forward to solving the global climate dilemma. (© Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars)
