The objective of this session is to evaluate the cost and performance of solvent, sorbent & membrane technologies in the context of carbon capture, utilization and sequestration (CCUS). Major topics include: CO2 separation from fossil energy power plants; process and technology development and improvements; optimization and comparison of CCUS processes. Questions that may be addressed include: - What are the major cost and performance consequences of solvent-, sorbent- & membrane -based CCUS technologies? How is the cost of electricity impacted after implementing CCUS? What is the resultant cost to capture carbon emissions? To what degree are plant heat rate, water use, and other relevant operations affected by implementation of CCUS? - What promising developmental pathways have been identified? What is the relative potential of these technologies for CCUS? Are these developmental pathways cost- or performance-limited? - How may major bottlenecks in conventionally-proposed CCUS processes be removed? Can these bottlenecks be attributed to technology limitations or sub-optimal process design choices? What techniques might be used for systematic optimization of these processes? - What market conditions are required to motivate the implementation of CCUS? What cost of CO2 capture would result in favorable economics for enhanced oil recovery? What carbon tax level would be required to motivate CCUS? - How might CCUS technology help to address recently proposed environmental regulations on non-CO2 emissions?
