Environmental evaluation of CCS using life cycle ssessment (LCA)

1st May 2010

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

This is a useful synthesis report which can serve as starting point for a more ordered approach to applying life cycle assessment to carbon dioxide capture and storage. The scope of this study is to compare systematically the different approaches of fifteen LCA studies, to summarise the results, show the site specific differences, address methodological variations and formulate guidelines to assign the various conclusions gathered from the studies.
