ZEP publishes report on cost of CCS

Save as PDF

In July 2011, the Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) published a report on the costs of Carbon Capture, Transport and Storage (CCS) based on new data provided exclusively by its member organisations on existing pilot and planned demonstration projects. According to the report, CCS will be cost-competitive compared to other sources of low-carbon power (on-/offshore wind, solar power and nuclear). Whilst the study focuses on power generation, it notes that cement is one of the energy intensive industries for which CCS could potentially reduce CO2 emissions.
