Improving Cost Estimates for Fossil Fuel Power Plants with CO2 Capture and Storage

Edward S. Rubin, Professor of Environmental Engineering and Science at Carnegie Mellon, will provide an overview of the recently released paper entitled "Toward a Common Method of Cost Estimation for CO2 Capture and Storage at Fossil Fuel Plants".  The paper, co-authored with experts from U.S. Department of Energy, International Energy Agency, IEAGHG, Electric Power Research Institute, Global CCS Institute and ZEP, calls attention to the different assumptions and methods used to estimate CCS costs.  In addition, the paper provides recommendations for a common methodology and improvements in key assumptions.
