This paper evaluated the techno economic performance of several CO 2 capture-network configurations for a cluster of sixteen industrial plants in the Netherlands using bottom up analysis. Preliminary findings indicate that centralizing capture equipment instead of capture equipment at plant sites shows lower average CO2 avoidance costs for both post-combustion (central: 70€ ; decentral: 86€ ) and oxyfuel combustion (central: 63€ ; decentral: 80€ ) technology, because of economic scale effects, use of large-scale CHP plants and revenues from electricity sale to the grid. Centralizing capture equipment is particularly interesting for small point sources, since these plants benefit most from economies of scale.
