Increasing societal acceptance is important as opposition has the potential to slow down successful implementation of both onshore and offshore projects. Our studies have focused on perceptions of industrial CCUS within four of our target countries and approaches to building community support. Find out more below.

Putting the genie back in the bottle’

Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from industrial sources such as steel, cement and petrochemicals contribute significantly to global CO2 emissions. In the first of a two-part ALIGN film series, we explore what role Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage (CCUS) can play regarding industrial CO2 emissions and their subsequent effects on global climate change, whilst not forgetting the significance these industries have for our modern world, from the food we eat, to the products we use on a daily basis. Part two of this series seeks to find out more on expert views on the development of industrial CCUS and the work and findings of ALIGN-CCUS. This video was played at the start of CCUS ALIGNED, our final dissemination event.
