Carbon Capture & Storage and Carbon Tax Report

This report presents the outcomes of a study conducted on behalf of SANEDI that aimed to explore the interaction between the proposed carbon tax and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) as a mitigation technology. The study consisted of two key components, being a background review to identify international experience on the interplay between CCS and the carbon tax, and a financial modelling exercise to explore the implications of South Africa’s carbon tax design for the financial viability of CCS in South Africa.

Analysis of Carbon Capture & Utilisation Technologies 

This report investigates the potential for carbon dioxide (CO2) Capture and Utilisation (CCU) as a greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation measure in South Africa through utilisation of CO2 as a measure to reduce industry sector energy emissions

Alternative Sites for Pilot Carbon Dioxide Storage Project

This study was commissioned by the South African Centre of Carbon Capture and Storage (SACCCS) as a back-up plan for the Pilot CO2 Storage Project (PCSP) in case the onshore Zululand Basin is either not suitable or not available for the PCSP. SACCCS is a Division of the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI). The project also aims to develop an understanding of the requirements and implications of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Integrated Demonstration Plant and Commercial Operation.
