Database and model of coal-fired power plants in the United States for examination of the costs of retrofitting with CO2 capture technology

1st April 2009

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

Given the importance of coal to power generation in the United States, where coal-fired power plants supply around 50 percent of the Nation’s electricity needs, examination of the costs and practicability for retrofit of existing pulverized coal power plants with CO2 capture technology is a valid exercise. To help elucidate this issue, this study defines a viable population of pulverized coal plants, which were examined individually to determine costs and space availability for retrofit. The task was to assess coal-fired power plants in the U.S. relative to the cost and feasibility for retrofitting with COcapture technology.
