Project Description

According to the bank document, the proposed technical assistance (TA) will focus on providing targeted capacity development support to the National and Local Joint Engineering Research Center for CCUS (NLJERC-CCUS) at Northwest University, to improve the enabling environment for large-scale CCUS deployment in the People's Republic of China (PRC).

The TA will: (i) assess strategies and policy recommendations to improve the regulatory and commercial framework conditions for CCUS in the PRC,

(ii) establish and disseminate knowledge products on the experience of CCUS deployment in Shaanxi Province, and

(iii) organize international study tours, workshops and trainings for relevant institutions and stakeholders. In addition, the TA will specifically appraise and promote the application of CCUS in the coal-fired power sector.

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.
