Equivalently, the cost of avoided CO2 (in dollars per ton of CO2 ) is always greater than the cost of CO2 captured. 14 provides a schematic demonstrating the differences between CO2 captured versus CO2 avoided for a typical power plant application, assuming that the capture plant captures and stores 90% of the total generated CO2 emissions and that some CO2 emissions will be associated with the energy needed to operate the capture process itself. Thus, the cost of CO2 avoided is the cost of delivering a unit of useful product (in this case, electricity) while avoiding a ton of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere.

J Power Sources 194(2):774–785 Chapter 2 Compression and Transport of CO2 Following capture and separation of CO2 from a gas mixture, the CO2 must be compressed for transport, regardless of whether it is destined for storage in underground geologic reservoirs or used as a feedstock in chemical processing, aggregate formation, or EOR. There are various modes of transport such as rail, ship, truck, and pipeline.
Usually, m < 1 and m < n. Coal primarily consists of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, but may also consist of nitrogen and sulfur, which lead to the formation of NOx and SOx , respectively. Additionally, coal contains volatile trace metals that evolve from the coal at the high temperature conditions of the boiler. The trace metals, mercury, selenium, and arsenic are present at ppb levels in most flue gases . However, it is important to note that depending on the type of coal and source from which the coal was mined, the chemical constituents may vary significantly.
