Based mostly on the working information of a 40 tCO2/day (2 megawatt (MW)) class carbon seize and utilization (CCU) pilot plant, the scaled-up 400 tCO2/day (20 MW) class CCU plant at 500 MW energy plant was economically analyzed by making use of the levelized price of vitality evaluation (LCOE) and CO2 prevented price. This research reveals that the LCOE and CO2 prevented price for 400 tCO2/day class CCU plant of mineral carbonation expertise had been 26 USD/MWh and 64 USD/tCO2, representing low LCOE and CO2 prevented price, in comparison with different carbon seize and storage CCS and CCU vegetation. Based mostly on the outcomes of this research, the LCOE and CO2 prevented price could turn into decrease by the economic system of scale, even when the CO2 remedy capability of the CCU plant might be prolonged as a lot as for related companies. Subsequently, the CCU expertise by mineral carbonation has an financial benefit in vitality penalty, energy plant building, and working price over different CCS and CCU with different expertise.
