The PetraNova project received $190 million in grant funding from the US Department of Energy -- a little under one-fifth of the project's costs -- but apart from that the project is entirely run on commercial terms, and can cover its costs at today's oil prices of about $50-$55 per barrel., according to NRG CEO Mauricio Gutierrez . By way of contrast, the other large carbon capture project now nearing completion in the US, Southern Company's Kemper plant in Mississippi, a regulated market, has gone way over budget and behind schedule. In 2010, its budgeted cost was agreed with the state's regulators at $2.8 billion. Now, with start-up scheduled for the end of this month, it is estimated at about $7 billion.
Petra Nova is fitted at a standard coal-fired unit, capturing the carbon dioxide from the flue gases using a process from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries that has been in use since 1999. NRG and JX have not revealed the cost of capture, but Jesse Jenkins of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology estimates that it works out at about $70 per tonne, unsubsidised. That is already lower than at the world's first large-scale carbon capture project at a power plant, at Boundary Dam in Canada. Completed in 2014, it cost more than Petra Nova, about $1.3 billion and captures less carbon dioxide at 1 million tpy.

In a model of the forest industry, researchers in Oregon State's College of Forestry combined an evaluation of costs for collecting, transporting and processing biomass with the potential locations of regional processing facilities in western Oregon. Each location was chosen because it is adjacent to an existing or recently closed wood product operation, according to an Oregon State news release.
The researchers say the future feasibility of reducing costs by increasing the efficiency of biomass operations may depend on public investments and the creation of new markets. While the study considered the possibility of generating biomass from restoration or thinning operations on federal forest lands, it concluded the additional supply does little to change the economic feasibility of processing facilities.
The study, which was led by Mindy Crandall, a doctoral student at Oregon State University and assistant professor of forest landscape management and economics at the University of Maine, was published in Forest Policy and Economics.

At a time when many Ontarians are suffering with drastic increases in hydro bills, Premier Wynne has had to admit that the energy poverty hitting her province is an urgent issue but instead of providing citizens with relief, she's introduced a cap-and-trade plan that will increase the costs of essentials like gas and heat which will do nothing but line the government's pockets.

A single adult earning up to $47,500 per year will receive a rebate of $200, and a couple making a maximum combined $95,000 per year will get $300. Rebates will rise in 2018, in tandem with the carbon levy, to $300 for singles, $450 for couples. Well over half of all Alberta residents are expected to receive a rebate. The carbon tax is expected to cost an average family about $450 per year.
The rebate cash is intended to help offset the costs of the new carbon tax. With the carbon tax, the retail price of gasoline has jumped 4.5 cents per litre, diesel is up more than 5 cents per litre , and natural gas is by $1.011 per gigajoule.

The report finds that algae costs more per unit than other biofuel crops but is claimed to yield 10 to 100 times more fuel per unit area. In 2014, the prices of oil were between US $ 56 to US $ 120 per barrel. The cost of producing micro algal biomass in 2014 was $2.95/kg through photo bioreactors. If the annual biomass production capacity is increased to 1000 tons then the cost will reduce to $1.5/kg for a litre of crude oil.
The extraction of biofuels from algae is largely dependent on organic solvents such as benzene.
