Title: Industrial CO 2 and Carbon Capture: Near-term Benefit, Long-term Necessity

Industry emits approximately 1 billion tonnes of CO 2 each year (1 GTCO 2/yr) in the United States–one-third of US stationary emissions–and an even greater amount in industry-heavy China. We hypothesize that capturing industrial CO 2 offers a near-term pathway to jumpstart CO 2 capture and storage (CCS) and is a long-term necessity to stabilize atmospheric CO 2 in order to avoid catastrophic climate impacts. We then explore this proposition using several new CO 2 emissions and storage databases for the United States, as well as emerging research including the economics of industrial CO 2 capture. We refer to our new “sources of CO 2 that are not electricity” database as SCO 2NE.
