Product Description
The FE/NETL CO2 Transport Cost Model is a spreadsheet-based tool that calculates the net present value for a project that transports liquid CO2 by pipeline. The model includes the capital costs, operating costs, financing costs and revenues for the project. The model can calculate the break-even first year price (or cost) for transporting a tonne of CO2 by finding the price that yields a net present value of zero for the project. The user provides a variety of inputs including the annual mass of CO2 to be transported, the pipeline length, the years of operation and financial parameters.
