- Based on International Energy Agency studies, achievement of 450 ppm CO2-equivalent emission target in global emission means that the CO2 emissions in 2050 must be reduced to %50 of 2005 level, and this implies that a portfolio of emission reduction policies and strategies need to be exploited through current century.
At the present time, Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Technology is a dominant strategy among all the long-term carbon abatement strategies in many countries. Nevertheless, its potential as a climate mitigating option will be proved, only if it is implemented in the countries which are developing at a great pace and taking advantage of fossil fuels in order to afford their energy demands. As regards Iran is ranked as the eighth great CO2 emitter country worldwide, it is quite a qualified option for CCS implementation as an emission mitigation solution.
In this thesis, first of all, an analytical framework is expanded which is covering the evaluation of CCS deployment determinants in Iran. At the second step, barriers against deployment of this technology and also, the required solutions and policies are discussed. Finally, three scenarios for CCS development process in Iran are depicted on the basis of IPCC Emission Scenarios (SRES), considering the selected indicators for these scenarios and the aforementioned policies. By means of these scenarios, contribution and deployment status of this technology in the oncoming Energy System of Iran will be assessed
