Six CCS cluster cases specific to the Nordics countries have been identified based. The technical and economical aspect related to capture and transportation for these cases have been investigated. As this is an ongoing study the results are preliminary and storage is yet to be assessed, only the storage location is known. The end goal of the project is to assess the feasibility of the identified CCS cases based on the final technical and economical evaluation. The industries targeted in this study are oil and gas, cement, iron and steel, pulp and paper and heat and power. The industrial cases that have been investigated in this assessment involve all the Nordic countries and cover a wide variation of CO2 volume, distance between sources, number of sources and distance to storage. The capture costs, with the current assumptions, generally lie in the region of 40-50 EUR/ton and are mainly dependent on the size of the CO2 emission source. The transportation costs depend strongly on the CO2 volumes and the transportation distance, and were estimated to approximately 17-20 EUR/ton. Ship transportation seems to be the least expensive transportation method, however there are exceptions.
