Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage (CCUS) is a key technology in climate change mitigation. Research conducted at the University of Edinburgh Business School since 2012 has helped to make CCUS a reality for the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases: China. Techno-economic and policy research at the Business School led to the formulation of national CCUS policy in China. It also led to the establishment of the first carbon-capture technology innovation platform in Asia, the 20kt Guangdong Carbon Capture Technology Centre (GCCT), a 100kt full-chain CCUS project in Yanchang Petroleum, and the first iron and steel carbon capture pilot in Xinjiang (100kt).
