Investment costs and CO2 reduction potential of carbon capture from industrial plants – A Swedish case study
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2018

In this work, the investment required to apply CO2capture to large-scale industrial sources is assessed and discussed in a case study of Sweden - a highly industrialized region with relative proximity to large and well-documented storage sites in the Norwegian North Sea. The Swedish process industry is characterized by a large share of biogenic emissions, and therefore has a considerable Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) potential. The capital cost for CO2capture is estimated for a standard MEA-based CO2absorption process. The CO2absorption process is applied to several industries – pulp and paper, oil and gas, steel, cement and chemical production – and dimensioned using process modeling. The equipment cost is subsequently estimated using a detailed individual factor estimation method. The capture costs are compared to estimates of the cost for transport and storage.
