Understanding the Cost of Retrofitting CO2 Capture to an Integrated Oil Refinery
CCUS Scenarios for the Cement Industry: Is CO2 Utilization Feasible?
Feasibility of Selective Exhaust Gas Recycle Process for Membrane-based CO2 Capture from Natural Gas Combined Cycles – Showstoppers and Alternative Process Configurations
Techno-economic analyses of CO2 liquefaction: Impact of product pressure and impurities
As a first step towards identifying the optimal transport conditions for shipping CO2, this study investigates the impact of post-liquefaction delivery pressure on the design and cost of CO2 liquefaction for (a) pure CO2 (b) three impurity scenarios (c) two purity requirements. For pure CO2, the hig...
Profiting from CCS innovations: A study to measure potential value creation from CCS research and development
Globally, large private and public funds are invested into CO2 capture and storage (CCS) research to provide the knowledge and technology required to mitigate CO2 emissions below a sustainable level. A pertinent question to ask is whether this is the best way of spending limited resources. This pape...
Best practices and recent advances in CCS cost engineering and economic analysis
Cost engineering and economic analysis are key elements of the performance assessment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. The CCS field has seen noticeable advances in the transparency and rigor of costing studies, but there is still significant room for improvement in three major areas:...
Comparison of Technologies for CO2 Capture from Cement Production—Part 1: Technical Evaluation
A technical evaluation of CO2 capture technologies when retrofitted to a cement plant is performed. The investigated technologies are the oxyfuel process, the chilled ammonia process, membrane-assisted CO2 liquefaction, and the calcium looping process with tail-end and integrated configurations. For...
Comparison of Technologies for CO2 Capture from Cement Production—Part 2: Cost Analysis
This paper presents an assessment of the cost performance of CO2 capture technologies when retrofitted to a cement plant: MEA-based absorption, oxyfuel, chilled ammonia-based absorption (Chilled Ammonia Process), membrane-assisted CO2 liquefaction, and calcium looping. While the technical basis for ...
Calculating CO2 avoidance costs of Carbon Capture and Storage from industry
This work discusses methods for calculating the CO2 avoidance cost for Carbon Capture and Storage from the non-power generation industry. Unlike the power generation sector, three calculation methods are often used to evaluate the CO2 avoidance cost in the case of CCS from industrial sources. Howeve...
