China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation has initiated China's first megaton carbon capture, utilization and storage project, the Sinopec Qilu-Shengli Oilfield CCUS. It is set to become China's largest whole industrial chain CCUS demonstration base and application case for promoting the large-scale development of CCUS in China.

The Project, expected to be put into production by the end of 2021, marks a key milestone in the construction progress of China's CCUS projects and is a huge demonstration of the industry's development. It is also of great significance to enhance China's carbon emissions reduction capabilities and build an "artificial carbon cycle" model as the country advances to reach peak carbon emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060.
CCUS is an important technical means to cope with global climate change and control greenhouse gas emissions, capturing and purifying carbon dioxide emitted during production and utilizing it in a new production process for recycling and storage.
The megaton-scale Project launched by Sinopec consists of two parts – Sinopec Qilu's carbon dioxide capture and Shengli Oilfield's carbon dioxide displacement and storage. Sinopec Qilu captures the carbon dioxide and transports it to the Shengli Oilfield for further displacement and storage, achieving an integrated application of carbon capture, displacement and storage to seal the carbon dioxide underground.
We have about six production lines that can handle cells of any form
