Scenario for large-scale implementation of CCS in Europe

In the CASTOR project funded by the EU and industry the emission reduction target for CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) was set at 30% of the CO2 emissions from power plants in Europe, which is to be achieved during the first half of this century. The developed scenario shows that this target can be met, although major uncertainties remain in the timely availability of oil and gas fields and the storage potential of aquifers. Results show that a rapid replacement of power plants after 2011 in northern Europe will give ample opportunity for using CCS. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
