Abstract
`Capture Ready' is a design concept enabling fossil fuel plants to be retrofitted more
economically with carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) technologies, however financing
the cost of capture ready can be problematic, especially in the developing world. We propose
that fossil fuel plants issue tradable Capture Options to acquire financing. The Capture Option
concept could move CCS forward politically in countries such as China, speed up CCS
technology development, help Capture Ready investors diversify risk, and offer global
