Abstract: Carbon capture and storage technologies are more and more concerned by the international community, and many countries promote the carbon capture and storage technology by legislation. Among them, the onshore carbon capture and storage technology is more noticeable. It involves four processes of capture, transport, injection and storage of carbon dioxide. The capture and transport processes can be regulated by the existing national laws, while the injection and storage processes require new laws to be regulated. According to legislative experience of foreign onshore carbon capture and storage technology, viewing from the current relevant laws and regulations, China should build the public law system focusing on regulation and the private law system focusing on remedy in order to promote the healthy development of onshore carbon capture and storage technology.
