Abstract

The ClimMIT project was funded by Estonian Research Council from National Programme for Addressing Socio-Economic Challenges through R&D (RITA), which is supported by the Estonian Government and European Regional Development Fund from April 2019 to April 2021. ClimMIT (https://www.taltech.ee/climmit) aims to assess the feasibility of investing in carbon capture infrastructure to minimise greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from oil shale industry in Estonia. The main technological deliverables of the project include analysis and recommendations on measures for potential implementation of carbon capture technologies and utilisation of carbon dioxide in Estonia’s public and private sectors. Estonia’s economy has, per capita, one of the highest GHG emission rates and carbon-intensity levels in the European Union. To decrease GHG emissions, the best options for implementing carbon capture and utilization (CCU) technologies must be worked out. The main goal of the project is to assess the suitability of existing CCU technologies and to develop scenarios for adopting these technologies in Estonia’s oil shale sector. The project results in a multifaceted overview of the feasibility of investing in carbon capture infrastructure to help to minimize GHG emissions from the oil shale industry in Estonia.

Keywords: CCU, oxy-fuel combustion, oil shale
