Building the cost curves for CO2 storage: North America

1st February 2005

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

The IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme has been systematically evaluating the cost and potential for reducing emissions of greenhouse gases arising from anthropogenic activities, especially the use of fossil fuels. To allow the different mitigation options under consideration to be compared IEA GHG has developed a series of mitigation cost curves which show the potential capacity for COreduction as a function of the cost. This report reviews the development of a COstorage cost curve for North America, which covers on-shore USA and Canada.
