DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The " Analyzing the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Market 2018" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Carbon capture and storage is a process that has become quite popular in recent years. Carbon capture and storage, known commonly as CCS, or even known as carbon capture and sequestration, is a process that captures waste carbon dioxide from sources such as fossil fuel plants and transports it to a carbon storage site (generally underground). The process prevents the release of such large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
The report analyzes the basics of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). The emergence of Carbon Capture and Storage and how it can aid in combatting global warming is analyzed by taking a look at global emissions of carbon dioxide, emissions from coal combustion and factors that promote the use of CCS.
We analyze the carbon dioxide capture process by firstly looking at carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, the high cost of carbon capture and the loss of efficiency power plants face if carbon capture process is introduced and other factors that impact the industry. Post combustion and pre combustion capture of carbon dioxide are analyzed. We also look at the use of ionic liquids for post combustion carbon capture. Other combustion methods such as oxyfuel combustion and chemical looping combustion are further analyzed in this report.
The high cost of carbon capture and storage is definitely a factor that has to be considered while analyzing the global carbon capture and storage industry. We analyze the economics of CCS through capital cost, storage and transportation costs, cost involved in the monitoring of underground carbon storage, overall industry costs along with the levelized cost of electricity.
