CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 4: legal and fiscal aspects
CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 4: legal and fiscal aspects

14th April 2015

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), Policy, law and regulation

This report provides an analysis of the current and suggested legal framework that could regulate CCS activities in Sweden and the wider Baltic Sea region. The evolution of a well-functioning legal framework for regional CCS operations is expected to be time consuming, with the early identification of potential hurdles critical to all stakeholders.

David Langlet was commissioned by Elforsk to analyse legal and fiscal aspects of CCS in the Baltic Sea region. The study was carried out jointly with Nils Rydberg who brought expertise on the CCS value chain and its actors. This report is part of the project Bastor2 (Baltic Storage of CO2), with the overriding objective to assess the opportunities and conditions for CO2 sequestration in the Baltic Sea Area. The project, which ran from June 2012 through September 2014, was financed by the Swedish Energy Agency, the Global CCS Institute and a number of Swedish industrial and energy companies.

CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 3: social aspects for Baltic Sea storage of carbon dioxide
CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 3: social aspects for Baltic Sea storage of carbon dioxide

13th April 2015

Topic(s): Public engagement, Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been highlighted in many countries and regions as a vital measure needed to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions in the fight against climate change. The technical and commercial development has been impeded by projects and project plans facing opposition by different groups. Against this background, this report describes the results of a study, within the BASTOR2 project, analyzing which social factors are likely to influence the plans for a proposed Baltic Sea storage project.

As there are not yet any CO2 storage projects in the Baltic region, the analysis for this report has been carried out on three Swedish case-studies of other energy related projects in the Baltic Sea. The social research literature consistently points to local and regional contexts as having a large influence on the perceptions and acceptance of CCS projects. The report consequently highlights a number of contexts, or conditions, that are identified as important factors in how the case-studies have been perceived and accepted or opposed in the local and national context.

CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 2: knowledge about environmental impact

2nd April 2015

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), Health, safety and environment

The objective of this study is to document current knowledge, hazards and risks on environmental impacts in a possible future CCS project in the offshore Baltic Sea Area. Another purpose is to also present a tentative EIA work plan for a field trial project as scoped out in Chapter 2. Further, the intention is to add new knowledge, if possible, to what is already known or applicable to CCS activities in the offshore Baltic Sea Area.

Yggdrasil Miljömanagement AB, together with panaware ab, were commissioned by Elforsk AB to document current knowledge about environmental impacts in the light of a possible CCS field trial project in the offshore Baltic Sea Area. This report is part of the project Bastor2 (Baltic Storage of CO2), with the overriding objective to assess the opportunities and conditions for CO2 sequestration in the region. The project, which ran from June 2012 through September 2014, was financed by the Swedish Energy Agency and the Global CCS Institute in collaboration with a number of Swedish industrial and energy companies.

Global CCS Institute submission to: the European Commission’s consultation on revision of the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) Directive
Global CCS Institute submission to: the European Commission’s consultation on revision of the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) Directive

31st March 2015

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), Policy, law and regulation

The European Council has concluded that 400 million allowances in the period 2021 to 2030 should be dedicated under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) to setting up an innovation fund to support demonstration projects of carbon capture and storage (CCS), in addition to other low carbon technologies.

To make this fund operational, a legal basis has to be created in the EU ETS Directive. In this submission the Global CCS Institute sets out its views on the innovation fund in response to the European Commission’s request for stakeholders to participate in the public consultation on the revision of the ETS Directive (established by Directive 2003/87/EC).

Development of an aqueous ammonia based PCC technology for Australian conditions: process modelling of combined SO2 and CO2 capture using aqueous ammonia
Development of an aqueous ammonia based PCC technology for Australian conditions: process modelling of combined SO2 and CO2 capture using aqueous ammonia

25th March 2015

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 capture

This research project focuses on the development of the advanced aqueous ammonia based post combustion capture (PCC) technology. Two years into the project a novel process was proposed integrating CO2 and SO2 removal, flue gas cooling and ammonia recycle. Under the typical flue gas conditions, the proposed process has a SO2 removal efficiency of over 99.9% and ammonia reuse efficiency of 99.9%, which was confirmed by the experimental results. A rate based model was also developed for the aqueous ammonia based CO2 capture process and validated using the results from Munmorah Power Station pilot plant trials.

Situation report 2013/14: European large scale demonstration projects
Situation report 2013/14: European large scale demonstration projects

19th November 2014

Topic(s): Engineering and project delivery, Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), Policy, law and regulation, Permitting

This second edition of the European CCS Demonstration Project Network: Situation Report 2013/14 includes the findings related to the participating projects from both the knowledge sharing events, presentations, and the internal survey conducted via the Information and Experience Gathering (IEG) questionnaire. The report covers progress made by the projects in capture, transport, storage, regulatory development, public engagement and knowledge sharing within and beyond the Network.

Little has changed from previous reporting for the projects in terms of planning and following timelines. Almost all of them have experienced delays with various permits and with reaching a final investment decision (FID). In 2013, two projects, Porto Tolle and Compostilla received a negative FID. Ciuden, the academic partner of Compostilla project, remains however with collaborative status in the Network. The current timeline for the ROAD project suggests that they could be operating and injecting CO2 by 2017. For Don Valley project this is planned for 2018.

The Network is composed of one oxyfuel power project (former Compostilla), one IGCC power project which may also include gas oxyfuel technology (Don Valley), one post-combustion power project (ROAD) and a gas processing project (Sleipner). Sleipner is the only project currently in operation. All will capture over 1 million tonnes of CO2 per annum, at a capture rate of over 90%. SOx and NOx are quoted by the projects as the most common and expected impurities in the slip stream gas.

世界のCCSの動向:2014 サマリーレポート
世界のCCSの動向:2014 サマリーレポート

5th November 2014

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

当インスティテュートは、「世界のCCSの動向2014」において、55件の大規模統合プロジェクトを確認した。現在13件のプロジェクトが「操業」中であり、2012年の12件から1件増加している。この増えた1件は、本年10月に操業開始となったカナダBoundary Damプロジェクトであるが、この開始はCCSにとってまさしく転換点といえよう。今後、2015年と2016年には、2件の大規模CCSプロジェクト(Kemper County、Petra Novaの各プロジェクト)が操業を開始する。さらに初の鉄鋼分野における大規模プロジェクトであるUAEのAbu Dhabiプロジェクトも建設中である。これら4件を含め、現状全部で22件の大規模CCSプロジェクトが操業ないし建設の段階にあるが、この件数は10年前の2倍となっている。
