Technology Roadmap: Carbon Capture and Storage in Industrial Applications (2011)


Author(s) IEA
Abstract There is a pressing need to accelerate the development and deployment of advanced clean energy technologies in order to address the global challenges of energy security, climate change and sustainable development. Ministers from the G8 countries, and China, India and South Korea, in their meeting in June 2008 in Aomori, Japan, acknowledged this challenge when they declared the wish to have the International Energy Agency (IEA) prepare roadmaps to advance innovative energy technology. “We will establish an international initiative with the support of the IEA to develop roadmaps for innovative technologies and co-operate upon existing and new partnerships, including carbon capture and storage (CCS) and advanced energy technologies. Reaffirming our Heiligendamm commitment to urgently develop, deploy and foster clean energy technologies, we recognise and encourage a wide range of policy instruments such as transparent regulatory frameworks, economic and fiscal incentives, and public/private partnerships to foster private sector investments in new technologies….” To achieve this ambitious goal, the IEA has undertaken an effort to develop a series of global technology roadmaps. The roadmaps will e nable governments, industry and financial partners to identify the steps needed and to implement measures to accelerate the required technology development and uptake. The underlying objective of this roadmap is to advance the global uptake of low-carbon technologies in industrial applications, particularly by involving developing countries and transition economies. This roadmap builds on the initial IEA roadmap on CCS (IEA, 2009), which outlined actions and milestones for CCS in the power, industry and fuel transformation sectors as a whole. It also draws on the technology roadmap for the cement sector developed by the IEA and the Cement Sustainability Initiative of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (IEA/WBCSD, 2009).
