Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage BECCS) and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) are recurrently depicted as critical technologies to limit global warming to 2°C.
However, their current diffusion remains slow as a series of social and economic barriers inhibit their up-scaling. In the present research, we focus on one of these economic barriers: the provision of a joint BECCS/CCS transportation infrastructure connecting the industrial sites equipped with BECCS and CCS capabilities to the dedicated storage sites. We apply cooperative game theoretic notions to: (i) examine the conditions needed for its construction to be decided, and (ii) determine the threshold CO2 value needed to build such a shared infrastructure. We apply this modeling framework to a large contemporary joint BECCS/CCS project in Sweden. Our results indicate that sustainable and incentive compatible cooperation schemes can be implemented in the Swedish case if the value of CO2 is high enough; it should reach 120€/tCO2 or more, depending on negative emissions
accounting scenarios.These findings position pragmatic policy recommendations for local BECCS deployment.
