Societal Integration of CCUS

Work package 12 on the societal integration of CCUS addresses the non-technical aspects of CCUS.

Societal Integration

The marginal cost increase for products and housing when implementing CCUS will be calculated. The products can vary from e.g. diapers (fluff rom pulp) to concrete buildings or biofuels.

WP12 will also engage with environmental authorities in Germany and Sweden to create guidelines for how to regulate CO2 capture installations.

WP12 also takes a qualitative approach, implementing methodologies from the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). Drawing on the expertise in the ACCSESS consortium, FHG will design and implement a citizen engagement process (Figure 8), to inform stakeholders about CCUS and the solutions it can bring, and analyse their concerns and needs. Also, Neutral CCUS Information Packages will be developed for cities.

These two approaches, together with surveys form the basis for a CCUS Handbook on implementation of CCUS-based solutions for sustainable cities development. The FHG work will be exemplified with real cases through cooperation with the City of Gothenburg. WP12 also deliver the final reports, synthesizing the work from ACCSESS, including how CCUS business models can be developed for industries.
