Livermore National Laboratory has signed an agreement with the Clean Energy
Research Institute in China
to conduct joint research and development of clean energy technologies.
Clean Energy Research Institute was formed by Huaneng Power International Inc.
the memorandum of understanding, LLNL will create a stronger relationship with
Huaneng and both parties will conduct research analysis and data exchange as
established under the U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center (CERC) that was
set up last year.
two parties will exchange information and technology on carbon capture and
sequestration (CCS), enhanced oil recovery, shale gas, and power engineering.
LLNL brings expertise in CCS, advanced material science, engineering and design,
and energy systems analysis.
plan to work on applied scientific challenges in large-scale projects and
deployments. We look forward to working closely with our Chinese counterparts
to find opportunities to collaborate that serve the needs of both
nations,” says Julio Friedmann, LLNL’s director of the carbon management

is a process that separates and captures carbon dioxide from industrial and
power plant flue streams, then compresses the gas and stores it underground in
deep geological formations. The process prevents greenhouse gas emissions from
entering the atmosphere. Under normal conditions, greenhouse gas emissions
contribute to global warming and climate change.
