From IAMC-Documentation
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The following carbon dioxide removal options are modelled in PROMETHEUS:

  • CCS in power generation: used in power plants with coal, gas, biomass
  • CCS in hydrogen production: used in hydrogen production plants with coal, gas, biomass
  • CCS in industry: with combustion of coal, biomass
  • Direct Air Capture

For a recent discussion on CDR options and strategies in PROMETHEUS, please see (Fragkos, 2020) in Energy Technology Journal: Global Energy System Transformations to 1.5 degrees C: The Impact of Revised Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Carbon Budgets
