Impact/Purpose:

The database is a repository of data on available greenhouse gas technologies in various stages of development for several high-emitting industry sectors. It will allow evaluation of multiple mitigation options with respect to emissions reductions and co-benefits and supports decision making in permitting activities and technology investments. It is designed to address multi-sector GHG emissions from stationary sources and help the user determine the most attractive options from performance and cost perspectives. GMOD is designed to provide multiple GHG control options for various sectors. It can be used for analyses of various air pollution control technology options and their implications on sector-specific output, economics, and environmental parameters.

Description:

Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Options Database (GMOD) is a decision support database and tool that provides cost and performance information for GHG mitigation options for the power, cement, refinery, landfill and pulp and paper sectors. The GMOD includes approximately 450 studies for all five sectors. The primary goal of this research is to give the decision maker an option to generate realistic technology choices that are comparable for engineering and economic analyses. It also provides information on the stage of development and availability of each technology option and identifies the barriers and needs for further technology development. It is designed to address multi-sector GHG emissions from stationary sources and help the decision maker determine the most attractive options from performance and cost perspectives. GMOD serves as a comprehensive information source on GHG control options for state agencies, and the tool provides decision makers with the capability to develop a host of alternative scenarios by constructing a conceptual-based source with suitable alternative control technologies.
