Generally speaking, CO2 can also be transported to the storage site by railway or truck. For technical CO2, this is the standard method. However, for carbon captured from industrial plants and then transported to a storage site in correspondingly large amounts, railway and truck can play no more than a subordinate role. The feasible capacity is severely restricted by the railway cars needed and the available routes or by the truck units required and the burden on traffic.
One serious disadvantage, as in the case of shipping, is that the CO - must be liquefied, stored and re-loaded several times, which involves considerable expenditure on equipment and energy consumption.
