In this study possible techniques of recovering CO2 from large-scale industrial processes are assessed. The largest and most concentrated CO2 sources in Dutch industry are identified, and the technical and economic feasibility of recovering CO2 from these sources is assessed. Nearly 20% of the Dutch industrial CO2 emissions may be avoided. The mitigation costs are calculated to be between US$ 8 and US$ 46 per tonne of CO2 emission avoided, for the different sectors considered. These cost figures indicate that CO2 recovery from industrial processes and from power plants are competitive options.
