Abstract: Successful large-scale deployment of CCS will require the build-up of commensurate infrastructure to transport CO2 from sources - e.g. power plants - to sinks - e.g. mature oil and gas fields. Research so far has mostly dealt with the techno-economic assessment of pre-defined CO2 value chains, which are typically country-specific and each connect a limited set of sources to a limited set of sinks. By contrast, our paper presents the JRC's InfraCCS model, a tool that is capable of finding the optimal pipeline-based CO2 transmission network for a given set of sources and sinks. The InfraCCS model is herein applied to the case of CCS in Europe, in order to estimate the strategic benefits of joint optimisation at pan-European level compared to optimisation at the level of individual countries.
