Market & Feasibility Research Assistance on Carbon Capture & Storage

From EAI, a leader in renewable energy/cleantech research & consulting

Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS)

CO2 is the major contributor to climate change and global warming. In order to mitigate the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere, on the one hand, a number of sustainable energy solutions are being attempted, each of which has the potential to significant bring down the extent of CO2 emitted per unit of energy generated. At the same time, the reality is that it will take many decades before the world has transitioned to a stage where it is powered fully or predominantly by low carbon sources.

This makes it imperative that, in order to mitigate the extent of CO2 in the atmosphere, it is also necessary to find ways to capture the CO2 that is being attempted by the fossil fuels being used, and which will be used as the predominant sources for the next few decades.

While such a CO2 capture (and subsequent sequestration) is currently almost infeasible in some cases, one domain in which the CO2 capture is feasible and make a big difference is in the case of fossil fuel based (coal, natural gas, oil & diesel) based thermal power plants.

In fact, thermal power plants are the single largest CO2 emitter industry worldwide.

As a result, there are clear mandates for power plants to significantly reduce their emissions. Over the years, certain mainstream CO2 capture and sequestration technologies have been accepted as being the most practical

One the capture front, the following have gained acceptance: (1) Pre-combustion technique for capture; (2) Oxy-fuel combustion; (3) Post-combustion capture. On transportation of the CO2, the two avenues being considered are pipeline transportation and road and/or water transportation. On storage, the three main storage avenues being considered are depleted oil fields (for enhanced oil recovery), saline aquifers, and coal beds (for recovery of coal bed methane).

Within these mainstream concepts, there are a number of innovations being explored. Outside of these mainstream avenues, there are novel processes and technologies being tried out.

While that is the good news, it is also true that there are a good number of challenges all along the carbon capture and sequestration value chain – both at the capture and at the storage/sequestration stages.

Thus, as with most emerging opportunities and solutions, CO2 Capture & Storage presents a promising future but with challenges on the way. Hence, a balanced understanding of the opportunities the sector promises along with its inherent challenges is needed before investment decisions can be made.
