Enabling the Legal and Regulatory Framework for Large-scale Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage Projects in Guangdong, China: Draft Report Version 1 for Expert Comments in Jun 2014
Haszeldine, R Stuart
Even though a large number of pilot scale CCUS projects are operating in China (Zhang, 2013), there were very few comprehensive studies on CCUS regulatory frameworks to support the deployment of large-scale demonstration projects in China (Hart and Liu, 2010; WRI, 2010). It is now urgent to review existing CCS policy and legal frameworks in China and in the UK, and to identify gaps for future development. The objective of this report is to provide CCUS project developers, government officials in China and wider stakeholders with an objective overview of the current legal and regulatory environment for developing CCUS projects.
