The first result of this study is a marginal abatement cost curve (MAC) for CCS in developing countries for 2020. Based on existing MAC studies, the IEA CCS Roadmap and an overview of ongoing and planned CCS activities, we compiled three scenarios for CCS in the power, industry and upstream sector, as shown below. The major part of the potential below $30/tCO2eq (70 –100 MtCO2/yr) is in the natural gas processing sector. The most important region is the MiddleEast and North Africa, followed by Asia-Pacific. These MACs are relevant for gaining insight in how CCS opportunities in developing countries can be supported in 2020, under the CDM, other carbon credit mechanisms, or non-market instruments.
CO2 capture and storage features in international climate policy under the UNFCCC as well as in other international forums. This report gives an update of the current and potential future role of CCS in the carbon market, climate negotiations after the Copenhagen and Cancun climate conferences in December 2009 and 2010, respectively, and in multilateral partnerships. These issues are summarised in two presentations on these topics as presented at CCS-related conferences in the Netherlands in June 2010.
