In the present paper, we report the result of cost analysis associated with the operation of CO 2 capture pilot facility using aqueous ammonia. The facility treating 1,000 Nm 3 /hr of BFG (blast furnace gas) is in operation with the production capacity of 10 t-CO 2 /d. From the pilot plant operation we found that the CO 2 recovery was 90% and the purity of product CO 2 was over 98%. Waste heat recovery system for steam generation was installed and integrated with the CO 2 capture facility

Since the process uses waste heat recovery system, the majority of operating cost is the electricity consumption. Excluding the steam cost generated by the waste heat recovery system, the operating cost for the process was estimated under $20/t-CO 2 .
