The Global Status of CCS: 2010 - Costs Chapter
Date:28 Mar 2011
The discussion around costs is one of the most critical for the deployment of CCS. The costs chapter of the report assessed data that emerged during 2010, including preliminary project cost information as well as three detailed CCS technology cost studies. These studies build on growing experience with the performance of small-scale demonstrations and improved understanding of costs. They provide the most up-to-date cost estimates available. The re-nements made in more recent technology cost studies, together with project cost information reveal that the costs of large-scale CCS projects may be higher than previously understood.
Over the next two weeks we’ll talk about these studies, and we will hear a number of costs specialists from around the world.
