This paper presents an environmental assessment of three scenarios postulating a national deployment of the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) chain by 2020-2050 on the French biggest industrial CO2 emitters (41 emitters among 9 industrial sectors) that had been carried out as part of the SOCECO2 project (1). This analysis is based on the comparison of these CCS scenarios with reference scenarios without CCS at the same timeframe. Results detailed below focus on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy consumption, although NOx and SOx emissions balances have also been evaluated in the same project. Conclusions of this study provide information about the extent and main contributing factors of potential environmental outcomes (negative or positive) associated to CCS deployment.
