Shell, Sinopec partner up in China carbon capture project


Energy giant Shell and China’s state-owned Sinopec have teamed up with steel manufacturer Baowu and German chemical company BASF to develop a carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) project in eastern China.

Having signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the companies intend to conduct a joint study to assess the technical solutions and develop a commercial model for the project.

A CCUS project in the region could offer industrial companies in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River contractual opportunities to capture and store their CO2 emissions, according to Shell.
