CARBON CAPTURE AND STORAGE
The Paris Agreement aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius. As the urgency to address Climate Change becomes ever more acute in recognition of its impact on natural and human systems, political pressure is increasing on major industries to curb CO2 emissions. If energy demand cannot be lowered at the global level in the coming years, then Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) will be required to reach the Paris Agreement ambition (IPCC 2018). In the IPCC model, the cumulative CCS capacity required until 2100 could be between 348 to 1218 GtCO2.
Carbon Limits has been involved in a number of CCS projects. Our clients include industry associations, private companies, development bank and public agencies. The team relies on a deep understanding of the CCS chain, from technical, economic and environmental perspectives.
Our services include but are not limited to:
- CCS chain assessments (technical, economic and environmental)
- Mapping of sources and sinks
- Incentive mechanisms analysis
- CCS development roadmap – Gap analysis
- Knowledge sharing – training
