CO₂ Source Discovery
The CCS industry is comprised of technologies from all economic sectors (e.g., power plants, cement manufacturing, ethanol refineries, paper mills). As such, these technologies are all in different stages of technological readiness for CO2 capture retrofits and different polices may or may not apply to them. Further, there are many different market forces that may influence CO2 source availability. For example, much of the nation’s coal-fired power plant fleet is scheduled for retirement. These factors make estimating the cost, quantity, and locations of potential sources of capturable CO2 difficult. Carbon Solutions addresses this challenge with our NICO2LE tool. NICO2LE provides the most up-to-date data and analysis that is grounded in the latest science. We can use NICO2LE to provide you with various products including market assessments, CO2 capture supply curves, and maps.
