U.S. TRADE AND DEVELOPMENT AGENCY
CHINA POWER PLANT EMISSIONS MONITORING AND CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES ORIENTATION VISIT
FEBRUARY 16, 2009 – FEBRUARY 28, 2009

The purpose of the OV was to support China’s increased efforts to improve the environment by addressing the technological needs for China to improve its capacity to monitor and control effectively harmful emissions from coal-fired power plants.
The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) sponsored an Orientation Visit (OV) to the U.S. for a delegation of government officials from China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP), Regional Environmental Monitoring Centers and the State Electricity Regulatory Commission (SERC). The purpose of the OV was to support China’s increased efforts to improve the environment by addressing the technological needs for China to improve its capacity to monitor and control effectively harmful emissions from coal-fired power plants. The OV promoted U.S. exports by showcasing U.S. technology and service providers in power sector emissions monitoring and control technologies and complementing additional anticipated activities to be supported by USTDA and other U.S. government agencies under the Administration’s Asia-Pacific Partnership for Clean Development and Climate (APPCDC) initiative.

The OV, which was organized and conducted by Global Marketing and Communications (GMC), visited Washington, D.C., Research Triangle Park, NC, Boston, MA and New York, NY. During the Washington portion of the visit, the delegates participated in a site visit to the Mirant Chalk Point coal plant in Aquasco, MD and met with officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and ASTM. The delegates also participated in the USTDA Business Briefing which was held at USTDA’s offices. The Briefing was extremely successful and well-received by the overflow crowd of US companies.

In North Carolina, the delegates participated in a full day of meetings at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) technical facilities at Research Triangle Park and visited with Cormetech Inc. From North Carolina, the delegates traveled to Boston, MA where they spent a full day in meetings and site visits with Thermo Fisher Scientific.

The delegates traveled to New York, NY where they met with Cemtrex, Inc., the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) and the Asia Coal Catalyst Company.
