The LHC created a higgs boson by colliding protons. This Chinese collider is planned (according to TFS) to collide electons and positrons. IANAPP but I am not sure that would create a higgs boson. However colliding an electon and a positron would create energy )matter and antimatter) probably in the form of gamma rays.
Whereas colliding protons and antiprotons will give of some energy in the form of neutrinos

In fact electrons and positrons are Leptons, so wouldn't this be called a Large Lepton Collider (LLC)?
