What do we need to know to make CO2 shipping for CCS a reality?

This Energy Insight provides a summary of the concepts and factors relevant to the shipping of CO2 in liquid form, in the UK and elsewhere, for the purpose of broadening the geographic reach of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) applications. The article discusses the status quo of CO2 shipping, drawing on similarities with the LPG industry, and discusses projected timelines for building CO2 ships and the conditions under which CO2 can be transported. The Insight also evaluates determinants of ship capacity and costs.
