The article reports on the European Union regulations mandating the capture and storage of carbon dioxide produced by power stations and industrial facilities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon capture and storage is by definition a two-part process involving capture of the CO[sub 2] gas and then its sequestration or storage. The first stage is the expensive part. It can be broken down into three approaches: pre-combustion, postcombustion, and oxyfuel combustion.

    Traditionally, economic analyses of greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation focused on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from energy sources, while non-CO2 GHGs were not incorporated into the studies, due to the lack of data on abatement costs of non-CO2 GHGs. In recent years, however, increasing attention...
