The Ministry of Knowledge Economy (MKE) of South Korea is planning to undertake the Carbon Capture Storage project in South Korea.

The project involves the construction of a 300MW out of 400MW circulating fluidized bed combustion (CFBC) or 500MW pulverized fuel coal power plant. The plants will produce approximately 1.2MTPA of carbon dioxide (CO2) and it is captured using Pre-combustion Oxyfuel method.

The captured CO2 emission by the power plants will be transported by a combination of pipeline and ship, for storage in offshore saline reservoirs.

Korean Electric Power Corporation was appointed as associated developer on the project.

The pre-feasibility studies commenced in 2009.


The project involves the construction of a 1.2MTPA capacity carbon dioxide storage and a power plant facility in South Korea.

The US$1,000 million project includes the following:

1. Construction of 300-500MW power plant

2. Installation of CO2 capture processing unit

3. Installation of offshore storage systems

4. Laying of transport pipelines
