This week, PNNL Director Mike Kluse will be in Beijing to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Energy Technology Laboratory and the Chinese Academy of Sciences Research Center for Energy and Power. The MOU will formalize collaborations to advance the technical, environmental, and cost performance of fossil energy technologies. This agreement represents a commitment from both nations to fund and support collaborative research in advanced coal conversion processes, especially carbon capture and storage. A number of institutes within the Chinese Academy of Sciences are expected to participate in the cooperative activities defined in the MOU. DOE Secretary Steven Chu has emphasized that China is an important partner with the U.S. in understanding and mitigating the effects of global climate change.
