The deployment of CCS in industry has a number of similar challenges as in the power industry. Unproven technology, increased energy use and the cost of innovative technology will hamper many projects. However, the heterogeneity of industrial processes means that certain early opportunities exist, whereby steams of near pure CO2 could be captured at a relatively low cost compared to the flue gases of other energy and industrial processes. In addition to contribution to CO2 abatement that investment in such high purity CCS projects could bring about, experience and knowledge of transport and storage of CO2 can be accumulated, removing barriers for further CCS projects.
