Assessing the valuation and monetization of CO2 capture and storage opportunities through BECCS
7/2022 – 12/2022
The goal of the assignment was to provide an comprehensive assessment of the regulatory, technical and marketing elements that must be considered when investing in the implementation of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) storage of CO2 emissions from own facilities to generate carbon credits that can be traded in the carbon market.
The main objective of the assignment was to provide a comprehensive overview of the different elements that have to be considered when investing in bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) projects to generate carbon credits and for their trading. The assignment looked at regulatory, technical and marketing aspects that can inform investment decisions on BECCS. The following tasks have been performed:
i) A description of the regulatory and voluntary landscapes related to carbon removal credits at domestic (i.e. UK and Norway) and international level (Art. 6). The task included an evaluation on how the regulatory and voluntary landscapes affect carbon removal credits’ generation, issuance and trading.
ii) A feasibility study to define eligibility of the proposed activity and the quantification of the potential volume of carbon removal credits that could be generated by existing and new facilities. The study also described the demonstration of additionality, baseline setting and robust monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV)
iii) A strategy to monetise the carbon credits that could be generated, including the identification of potential buyers, a valuation of the carbon credits from removals, and an analysis of current and future market trends.
