Tables and Figures

Global CO2 atmospheric concentrations and temperature over time
Global CO2 atmospheric concentrations and temperature Anthropogenic CO2emissions have increased greatly over the past 150 years, leading to significantly increased atmospheric concentrations of the gas. Associated with this increase has been a significant rise in average global temperatures.

Global CO2 emissions and GHG emission reduction options
Global CO2 emissions and GHG emission reductions Energy emission scenarios developed by the International Energy Agency demonstrate that a portfolio of low-carbon technologies is needed to reduce emissions to half their current levels by 2050. Among these technologies are Carbon Capture and Storage, energy efficiency gains, renewables, fuel switching and nuclear.

Avoided costs of CO2 by technology in the power sector
Avoided costs of CO2 by technology in the power sector

This analysis shows that for avoiding CO2emissions, CCS is a cost-competitive technology with other future large-scale abatement options in the electric-power generation sector. The costs presented in this chart are for technologies operating in the United States, and have been derived by the Institute based on reviewing a range of studies. Technology costs can vary due to a range of factors.

Technical options for CO2 capture from coal-power plants
Technical options for CO2 capture from coal-power plants The main technology options for CO2 capture from fossil fuel usage are post-combustion capture (PCC) from combustion flue gas, pre-combustion capture from fuel gases and oxyfuel combustion – the direct combustion of fuel with oxygen. This figure describes how the different processes work.

Levels of CO2 in the atmosphere in different climate mitigation scenarios, including BECCS
Levels of CO2 in the atmosphere in different climate mitigation scenarios. In a number of different scenarios, the long-term sustainable capacity of BECCS is assessed to be large in a global perspective. A model is shown using different climate mitigation scenarios, including different implementation levels of BECCS technology.
