Demonstrating CO2 capture in the UK cement, chemicals, iron and steel and oil refining sectors by 2025: a techno-economic study

30th April 2014

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

In November 2013, the United Kingdom’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), and Department of Business Innovation & Skills (BIS) commissioned a team led by Element Energy, and comprising Carbon Counts, PSE, Imperial College and the University of Sheffield, to carry out a study of industrial CO2 capture for storage or utilisation.

The primary focus of this study is assessing the technical potential and cost effectiveness for retrofit deployment of different CO2 capture technologies to the UK’s existing largest (0.2-8 MtCO2/yr) sources of process CO2 emissions in the cement, chemicals, iron and steel, and oil refining sectors by 2025.
