Project Description

The TA cluster will initially focus on capacity development support to the National and Local Joint Engineering Research Center for CCUS (NLJERC-CCUS) at Northwest University; and the feasibility assessment of a large-scale CCUS demonstration project at a plant of Yanchang Petroleum Group (YPG), which is identified in the road map and by NDRC as a priority demonstration project and is currently under development. Subsequently, the TA cluster will provide further support to future CCUS demonstration projects in the coal-fired power subsector and coal-chemical industry. The TA cluster modality is adopted to allow the inclusion of additional large-scale demonstration projects, beyond the initial Yanchang CCUS Project (YCCUSP), and to prepare a program of interrelated projects, in line with the 2016-2030 action plan for energy technology revolutionary innovations. The TA is well aligned with ADB's Strategy 2020 and its development agenda of achieving environmentally sustainable growth. ADB's country operations business plan, 2017-2019 named managing climate change and environmentally sustainable growth as strategic priorities of ADB assistance to the PRC.
