AVOID 1: India’s CO2 emissions pathway to 2050

October 30, 2012
|

Two low-carbon scenarios are considered in this study – the first with no specific technology limitations, and the second with a number of restrictions, the most important being that no carbon capture and storage (CCS) is allowed to be deployed, gas imports are limited, and biomass usage in […]

AVOID 1: Assessment of Mitigation Scenarios, Technologies and Hedges against Uncertainty – UK Carbon Capture and Storage activity in the next decade

August 5, 2010
|

This report covers CCS issues that have long-term impacts but which would be timely to address in the near term. It complements the review of advanced CCS technologies also undertaken in this AVOID P project, which covers topics likely to be more relevant in the longer term […]

AVOID 1: The Potential for the Deployment of Negative Emissions Technologies in the UK

July 30, 2010
|

A mix of technological options to remove CO2 from the atmosphere could be viable at a reasonable scale and a reasonable cost in the order of magnitude of $100/tCO2 over coming decades. In the longer term this may allow a cap on CO2 emission trading/tax costs […]

AVOID 1: Review of advanced Carbon Capture technologies

January 14, 2010
|

This report reviews carbon dioxide (CO2) capture technologies, including those that might come online in the 2020s. It describes the types of technology being developed and how efficiency will increase with development. It also describes the potential for synergies between CO2 capture systems and heavy emitting industry.

Two […]
