The process requires money: money to extract the limestone, money to purchase the fuel, money to transport the materials, money to pay the capital cost of the equipment, money to operate and maintain the equipment and money to manage the process. This section examines how much the process is likely to cost. The cost of the process will depend on how closely the various materials required for the process are located to one another.
- How much does limestone cost? How location dependent is this?
- How much does it cost to transport limestone? How much does it cost to transport and dispose of the lime in seawater?
- How much does it cost to calcine limestone in existing plants? How much of that cost is energy – both heat energy and electrical energy?
- What are the capital costs of the process? How much will it cost to maintain, operate and manage the process?
