Abstract Considering the impacts of human activities on the environment, emissions of greenhouse gases are one of the major concerns. The CCS technologies are seen as an option that can help to decrease the emissions of CO 2 and reduce potential effects that a heightened CO 2 concentration might have. The technical solution of capture, transport and storage of the CO 2 originating in large emission point sources (power plants, industry) is depending on local conditions and can vary significantly. The ammonia scrubbing was chosen for CO 2 separation from flue gas of lignite coal power plant (typical conditions for the Czech Republic) in the national project MPO FR-TI1/379. Environmental gains and impacts of the power plant and the optimized variant of the capture technology based on ammonia scrubbing were assessed on the basis of material and energy flow balance. The potential environmental impacts of the power plant with and without CO 2 capture were compared using LCA methodology.
