Potential for carbon capture ans storage (CCS) in the Nordic region

Technical Report:

Abstract

The objective of this study is to give an overview of the potential for applying CCS in the Nordic countries (Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway and Iceland). The realistic potential of CCS in the region has been evaluated by taking into account existing and future energy systems and policies, emission sources, potential storage sites, technological, economical and political constraints as well as public acceptance. Special attention has been given to identifying promising regional CCS solutions that would have a significant CO{sub 2} emission reduction potential and could possibly involve cooperation between Nordic countries with synergical benefits for these. The report includes mapping of CO{sub 2} emissions in the Nordic countries from major sources, mapping and quantification of storage possibilities as well as scenarios of possible future CCS deployment in the region. In addition to the mapping, an overview of relevant CCS technology development and R&D activities in the Nordic countries is given. Public awareness of CCS, energy and climate policy frameworks, as well as political issues relevant to the deployment of CCS in the Nordic countries are also addressed. (orig.)
