Measuring Public Acceptance of CCS Technology

Listen to Sven Anders from the University of Alberta explaining how the team will work on these issues in WP3.

WP3 is addressing the challenge:
How to achieve public acceptance for new, unfamiliar technology with potential, uncertain risks in the eyes of general public that lack the knowledge, expertise and objective risk valuation of CCS.
The project will investigate specific impacts of public knowledge, understanding of CCS, risk perceptions, information uncertainty, trust, and transparency in current seismic monitoring approaches on CCS acceptance.
One important outcome of the project is the development of effective communication strategies around CO2 sequestration for diverse target audiences across ENSURE member countries.
