November 21, 2019

Today, the 10th Total China Scientific Forum (TCSF) opened in Chengdu. This is the city where the CHEERS project is based. The theme this year was “Innovative Low-carbon Energy”. The two-day gathering focused on the development of innovative technologies for the LNG industrial chain, low-carbon transportation and carbon dioxide capture, utilization and storage (CCUS). The forum serves as a platform for participants to share research results and present case studies. More than 200 experts and guests from renowned universities, research institutions, government and industry associations, well-known enterprises and innovative companies attended the forum.

Dongfang Electric Corporation (DEC), parent company of Dongfang Boiler Corporation (DBC), was invited to co-chair the event, while young scho

lars from another 2 Chinese partners Tsinghua University and Zhejiang University also presented themselves to exhibit their recent academic achievements in “Energy Future Innovation”. One of the major reasons to have such an event held in Chengdu was to better advertise the CHEERS project to the Chinese domestic market. Prof. Zhenshan LI from Tsinghua university and Dr. Mahdi YAZDANANAH from TOTAL jointly introduced the upcoming, latest progress and future prospect of the CHEERS project in the Forum, generating high interest and receiving wide rec

ognition from the audiences. A site tour to the cold mock-up model near Chengdu was also organized thereafter to some VIP guests.

“China has become one of the world’s most innovative and dynamic countries and is playing an active role in emerging energy technologies. As a flagship H2020 program undertaken in China, the CHEERS project will surely become an exciting, challenging and promising mission benefiting both European countries and China in developing affordable CCUS solutions,” says Zhonghua XU, VP, Head of TOTAL R&D Asia.
