China is building a vast new carbon capture plant in a remote corner of the Great Wall of China, and it is being watched by the world’s largest carbon producers.
China has become the world leader in the production of carbon dioxide, but its economic growth has faltered in recent years, with China’s economy slowing to a halt and its emissions increasing.
It now produces less than 1 percent of the world total and its carbon emissions have doubled in the last decade.
Now China is setting up a new plant to capture carbon dioxide from its power plants and coal mines, a process that will create more than half of the carbon emissions from its economy.
The $5.5 billion plant, which is being built by the State Grid Corporation of China in a sprawling complex in a mountainous region known as Jinjiang, is one of several in China that will produce large quantities of carbon, and is expected to produce nearly half of its carbon-capture capacity by 2025.
The new plant will produce up to 1.5 million tons of carbon per year.
The facility is expected be operational by 2020.
The carbon capture technology has been touted by some as a way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and the cost of building and operating the plant, but the project has raised concerns about the environmental impact and environmental risks.
The Chinese government has said that the project is part of a national strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has called the technology “extremely dangerous,” and a 2009 report by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said the technology could cause serious damage to the climate.
The China-led Global Carbon Capture and Storage Initiative, a government agency, is responsible for setting global emission standards for the carbon capture process.
The project has been criticized by environmentalists and some scientists for its environmental impact.
The United Nations has criticized the plan, saying that its emissions reduction targets are too low.
But Chinese President Xi Jinping has repeatedly said that China is committed to reducing its carbon footprint, and that the plant will help the country meet its emissions reductions targets.
China’s carbon emissions dropped by about 1 percent in 2014, according to the country’s Ministry of Commerce.
China’s carbon-spewing factories have been the subject of harsh criticism by environmental groups and activists, including by a group of scientists and activists called the “Chinese Carbon Emissions Observatory,” which has called on the government to halt the plant.
The Carbon Capture Plant in Jinjiang was designed to produce carbon dioxide at a rate of 0.2 tons per kilowatt-hour of power generated, the China Daily newspaper reported.
That translates into roughly 10 tons of CO2 equivalent a year.
China says the plant can capture and store CO2 for more than 25 years, the newspaper reported, citing state media reports.
A spokesperson for the Energy Department said in a statement that the technology was designed for use in the future, but added that it has not yet been tested and could not provide information about the carbon dioxide capture system’s emissions reduction capacity.
