The 25th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC COP25) was held in Madrid, the capital city of Spain on Dec. 2. As one of the important participants, NWU co-hosted the China Pavilion themed “Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS): practice and prospect” on the afternoon of Dec.6, local time.
This meeting, sponsored by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment of China, was jointly organized by the Australian Global Carbon Capture and Sequestration Institute (GCCSI), the Asian Development Bank, and the CCUS Professional Committee of the Chinese Society for Environmental Sciences and NWU. This is the third time that NWU, as a member of the Chinese government delegation, has co-hosted the China Pavilion themed CCUS, following the 23rd and 24th UN Climate Change Conferences.
Chang Jiang, a member of the Standing Committee of the NWU Party Committee and Vice-President of NWU, delivered a keynote speech at the meeting. As one of the special lecturers, Ma Jinfeng, a Professor in the Geology Department who serves as Deputy Director of the National & Local Joint Engineer Research Center for Carbon Capture and Storage Technology, delivered a keynote speech on “The Development and Challenge of CCUS in Shaanxi Province.”
During the event, NWU delegates also participated in several special meetings about CCUS and climate change in order to learn advanced CCUS-relevant technology and experience from developed countries. By this means they might accumulate experience to design world-leading technical infrastructures of CCUS.
