Carbon capture and storage in industrial applications: technology synthesis report
The United Nations Industrial Development Organisation and the International Energy Agency are developing a Global Technology Roadmap for CCS in Industry (the Roadmap), due to be released mid–year. The project has been sponsored by the Global CCS Institute and the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.
The Roadmap will be a valuable resource to stakeholders, including policy makers and regulators, across the globe. Targeted at policymakers, the Roadmap will be a high-level assessment of the key actions and milestones that need to be undertaken to develop CCS in Industry.
The following in-depth, technical sectoral assessments have been undertaken to inform the direction of the Roadmap.
- Iron and Steel
- Enhanced Oil Recovery
This Technical synthesis report describes the main technology options available to the industry sectors which have the highest potential for CO2 mitigation, since they are large emitters and have potential for the application of CCS. The report captures the main findings drawn from five sectoral assessment reports that were commissioned by expert consultants to the CCS Industrial Sector Roadmap project, namely: high purity CO2 sources, refineries, cement, iron and steel and biomass based; and from the reports from the workshops undertaken as part of the development of the Roadmap.
