LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The University of Kentucky has partnered with a Chinese company on a project to capture and store carbon dioxide emissions at a power plant in China.

The university says carbon dioxide will be captured from a coal-burning unit at the Shengli power plant in Dongying in eastern China. The project is aiming to capture 1 million tons of CO2 per year.

The project is sponsored by the US-China Climate Change Working Group. The university’s Center for Applied Energy Research is working with the Sinopec Corp.’s Shengli Oilfield Co. and Petroleum Engineering Construction Corp.

The university says the goal is to develop a series of technologies to capture, transport, store and monitor carbon dioxide.

Preliminary work on the project began in 2012, and work is scheduled to continue through 2017.
