Permitting issues related to carbon capture and storage for coal-based power plant projects in developing APEC economies

This study examines Carbon capture and storage legal and regulatory regimes for nine developing APEC economies: People’s Republic of China, Indonesia, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, the Philippines, Chinese Taipei, Thailand and Viet Nam.  

These APEC economies were selected for this study based on four criteria:

  1. the economy is considered a developing economy
  2. the economy consumes a significant amount of coal as fuel for electricity generation
  3. the economy possesses potential CO2 storage capacity, and
  4. the economy has a likely need for CCS to achieve greenhouse gas emissions reductions and / or the presence of policies that offer an enabling environment for CCS.
