The Path to Carbon Neutrality in China: A Paradigm Shift in Fossil Resource Utilization


The Paris Agreement has set the goal of carbon neutrality to cope with global climate change. China has pledged to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060, which will strategically change everything in our society. As the main source of carbon emissions, the consumption of fossil energy is the most profoundly affected by carbon neutrality. This work presents an analysis of how China can achieve its goal of carbon neutrality based on its status of fossil energy utilization. The significance of transforming fossils from energy to resource utilization in the future is addressed, while the development direction and key technologies are discussed.
