Technology Roadmap: Carbon Capture and Storage in Industrial Applications
Published:19 Sep 2011
Developed by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Technology Roadmap: Carbon Capture and Storage in Industrial Applications, paves the way for low-carbon industrial growth in developed and developing countries by providing a vision of industrial CCS up to 2050. Its insights will help policy makers evaluate the benefits of CCS technology and help them make informed decisions. It also offers investors a much-needed assessment of the potential for CCS in industry, an application that has been neglected.
The report focuses on five main industrial applications:
- high-purity CO2 sources;
- biomass conversion;
- iron and steel; and
Implementing CCS in industrial sectors still has many barriers, which need to be overcome. Specific technology gaps need to be bridged, incentive policy frameworks need to be tailored to each sector according to technology maturity, with special emphasis on making sufficient capital available in developing countries, capacity building and education programs need to be developed and international collaboration expanded and strengthened.
