ACCSESS Lunch Webinar:

The cost to consumers of carbon capture and storage – a product value chain analysis


Add to calendar

Presenter: Anna Hörbe Emanuelsson, PhD Candidate, Chalmers University of Technology

High-cost abatement measures to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in the basic commodity industry is known to result in substantial increases in the production costs. Consequently, investments in such measures are lagging behind what is required to make deep emission cuts in line with the Paris Agreement. As high-cost abatement measures (such as Carbon Capture and Storage; CCS) are perceived as expensive for the basic commodity producer, we investigate the impacts down-stream of the product value chain when assuming full cost pass-through (i.e., the cost increase related to basic commodity production is fully passed on down-stream of the product chain to the end-consumer).

Anna Hörbe Emanuelsson, PhD Candidate at Chalmers University of Technology, presents the results of a recently published paper, investigating the effects on both costs, by means of a techno-economic assessment, and carbon footprints, using a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The study covers the whole product value chain for the case of post-combustion CCS applied to the cement, pulp, Waste-to-Energy (WtE), and refinery industries, towards abating fossil- and process-related emissions and generating negative emissions.

Welcome to the series of ACCSESS Lunch Webinars. The webinars consist of a 20-minute presentation followed by questions and discussion. The presentation will be recorded, but not the Q&A and discussion that follows. You can find more information about the webinars at our ACCSESS website.
