Post Combustion CO2 Capture Using Absorption TechnologiesCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Carbon Capture and Storage|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Thermal and electrical energy use increases by 1 - 3.5 MJ/t-clinker and by 50 to 90 kWh/t-clinker, respectively.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
Up to 90% of the CO related to clinker production can be captured. CO2 emissions linked to the absorption and regenertion steps will need to be taken into consideration.
Reductions of 740 kg CO2/t-clinker are estimated.
Investment costs are estimated to be €100 - 300 million in 2030 and € 80 - 250 million in 2050.
Operational costs are estimated to be €10 - 50/t-clinker for 2030 and € 10 - 40/t-clinker for 2050.
