Analysing the Potential for CCS within the European Pulp and Paper Industry
Paper in proceedings, 2010

In this paper an approach for analysing the potential for implementation of different technology pathways for the European pulp and paper industry (PPI) is presented. The approach assumes previous, detailed, research and is based on bottom-up thinking whilst still estimating the potential on a European level. The usefulness of the approach is exemplified by applying it to a study of the potential for introduction of carbon capture and storage (CCS) within the European PPI. The results from the case study show that if CCS is to be introduced in large scale within the European PPI, biomass-based emissions must be included when planning for the future CCS infrastructure.
