    there's an active CO2 purchase market at about $20/ton for sources within a couple hundred miles of certain types of oil and gas fields.

    Some of these documents were too technical for me, but I think that costs of installing a current CO2 capture system for low-concentration industrial emissions is about $2/ton ($250 million for system, about 150 million tons captured over 30 years) over the project life, not including operating cost.

    Operating costs, mainly electricity, is about $30 million/year or another $5-10/ton CO2 captured.

    That still seems lower than the nano-and-other systems costs in the cited abstracts.

    Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
