1st April 2015

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

This report evaluates the role the CCS technology could play in the Portuguese energy and industry system as a mitigation option to achieve deep GHG emissions reductions. The cost effectiveness of its deployment, and the risks and additional benefits it may provide for economic development are also analysed.

The partners of the CCS-PT: Perspectives for capture and sequestration of CO2 in Portugal project authored this report:

  • CENSE Research Group, FCT - Universidade Nova de Lisboa
  • CGE Research Group, Universidade de Évora
  • Laboratório Nacional de Energia e Geologia
  • REN – Rede Eléctrica Nacional, S.A.
  • Bellona Foundation

The Global CCS Institute supplied financial and technical contributions.

Sumário (Portuguese Summary)
O presente relatório avalia o papel que a tecnologia de CAC poderá desempenhar no sistema energético e industrial Português para atingir reduções significativas de emissões de GEE. São analisadas as condições que determinam o seu custo-eficácia, e os riscos e benefícios adicionais.
