This paper is the result of ongoing research conducted at the University of North Florida, School of Engineering regarding carbon sequestration activities in Florida, USA. The issue of global climate change has led great interest to bear on reducing carbon emissions through new technologies such as geologic carbon sequestration. Engineers, scientists, and governing bodies across the globe have studied the costs associated with transporting carbon dioxide from point sources to repository sites but few have completed analysis for Florida. In 2007, Florida power plants accounted for over 143 million tonnes of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere. This report continues recently published cost analyses and transport optimization techniques for transporting carbon dioxide from power plants in Florida to proposed carbon repositories throughout the state. New transportation scenarios are introduced along with revised costs and transport optimization results.
