Transition to a zero carbon industry in Norway and Sweden – process solutions and supporting infrastructure
Research Project , 2019 – 2023

The project will analyze and describe how the Swedish base industry (including CHP) can achieve CO2-neutrality by 2045. Thus the project will calculate Marginal Abatement Cost Curves (MACC) for the emission reduction measures that can be implemented on the facilities that are included in the project, including cost of associated infrastructure. The analysis of process solutions for climate neutrality at the individual plants will focus on; 1) Fuel/feedstock change from fossil to biomass, 2) Electrification, 3) Application of CCS/BECCS to fossil/biogenic emissions. With regard to assc infrastructure, the project will include biomass supply, the electricity system and transport/storage of CO2. Using MACC, the project will prepare a roadmap for the Swedish base industry to achieve net zero emissions by 2045. All installations with emissions of at least 100 kton/yr will be included in the analysis while 3 regional case studies will include installations with emissions down to 10 kton/yr.
