Priorities of research funding for coal, coal to chemicals and carbon capture and storage
By Professor Zhenyu Liu, State Key Laboratory of Chemical Resource Engineering, Beijing University of Chemical Technology

The 13th Five-Year Plan for Economic and Social Development of the People’s Republic of China (the 13th Five-Year Plan of China) has set priorities on optimization of energy structure and protection of the environment. The main measures include making energetic efforts for clean coal, the deployment of technologies and actively responding to the global climate change.

The government funding is managed by various government branches, such as the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), the Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). All these government branches fund projects on clean coal technology and carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS).

The funding by MOST is through the “National Key Research and Development Program of China” under the “Clean Coal Technology and Novel Energy Saving (Efficient) Technology”. The funding totaled 460 million Yuan RMB in 2016 and the projects solicited are:
.

Category 1. Efficient coal based thermal power generation
  • Novel power generation with supercritical CO₂ and CO₂/steam as working medium
  • Development and demonstration of ultra-supercritical circulating fluidized bed boiler

Category 2. Clean coal conversion
  • Fundamentals in direct conversion of low rank coals
  • Key technologies in pyrolysis and gasification of coals
  • Key technologies in waste water treatment and recycle

Category 3. Coal combustion emission control
  • Technologies for emission control of PM2.5 and Hg
  • Demonstration of integrated technologies for abatement of flue gas SO₂, NOx and PM

Category 4. CCUS
  • Fundamentals in CO₂ reduction and geological sequestration
  • Fundamentals in CO₂ conversion
  • CO₂ capture technologies by microalgae

Category 5. Recovery of industrial residual energy
  • Technology for residue heat recovery from particulates containing waste gas
  • Technologies and equipment for low grade heat recovery

Category 6. Energy saving industrial processes and equipment
  • Optimization and energy conservation of processing industry
  • Energy conservation technology of industrial furnaces

Category 7. Energy conservation in data centers and public sectors
  • Key energy saving technologies for data centers
  • Development and demonstration of efficient energy system for public sectors

The following projects are being solicited for 2017:

Category 1. Efficient coal based thermal power generation
  • Ultra-high parameters coal fired power generation
  • Technologies of near zero CO₂ emission based on coal gasification
  • Key technologies for clean combustion of ultra-low volatile fuel
  • R&D and demonstration of thermal power unit with double reheat

Category 2. Clean coal conversion

  • Technologies of advanced indirect coal liquefaction
  • Development and demonstration of large scale coal slurry gasification technology
  • Development and demonstration of large scale pulverized coal gasification technology
  • Development and demonstration of grading conversion and utilization technologies of low rank coals

Category 3. Coal combustion emission control
  • Technologies for flue gas SO₂ abatement and utilization
  • Technologies for ash utilization
  • Novel technologies and demonstration of novel particulates emission control

Category 4. CCUS
  • Advanced CO₂ capture sorbents/materials and technologies
  • Membrane technologies and demonstration for CO₂ capture

Category 5. Recovery of industrial residual energy
