SimCCS is a software platform for carbon capture and storage (CCS) infrastructure design. SimCCS is an economic-engineering software tool for making integrated CCS infrastructure decisions. Using user-provided regional source, sink, and transportation data, SimCCS creates candidate transportation routes and formalizes an optimization problem that determines the most cost-effective CCS system design. SimCCS is freely available through a public GitHub repository (Yaw et al., 2018). This repository includes source code for users that wish to directly modify SimCCS2.0, as well as a packaged executable version (jar file) for users that do not wish to compile code on their own. The data from the sample dataset is included to provide a fully functional example and representative file formats.
