As the Chinese come to grips with the tangible realities of energy, and its emissions, there are a number of interesting pilots that are going on in China to capture emissions and do something useful with them. And while I am not a huge fan of solutions that do not address the underlying failures, at this point I believe that China will need any and all help it can get as it looks for ways to reduce the various pollutants its economy is kicking off, at the source or further downstream.

With that, I invite you to spend a few minutes and learn about a pilot that is going on in Shanghai. A pilot that is capturing carbon from the energy production process, and creating several products that others can use. As mentioned in the video, the capacity of this technology (to date) is a fraction of a fraction of what would be needed to clean the air.. but, it is a ilot, one of several, and over time one can only hope that the costs and capacity of this technology can be ramped up.
