Public perception of carbon capture (utilization) and storage projects: world experience and the situation in Russia
Department of Economics, Organization and Management, Faculty of Economics, St. Petersburg Mining University, Saint Petersburg, Russia
At present, one of the major global environmental problems is the greenhouse effect, which is caused by carbon dioxide emissions. One of the most innovative methods to combat the greenhouse effect is the introduction of CC(U)S projects, involving the implementation of CC(U)S technologies, aimed to carbon capture (CC), storage in underground facilities (S), and sometimes utilization (U). This paperexamines foreign experience of applying CC(U)Stechnologies, which have shownthat some projects have been canceled due to negative public reaction because of low awareness. To understand the prospects for the implementation of CC(U)S projects in Russia, student surveys were conducted among St. Petersburg universities in order to determine the level of awareness of Russian society about this issue. As a result, recommendations were developed to increase awareness level of society of CC(U)S technologies The study is based on publications of Russian and international experts in different scientificjournals. The research methodology includes desk studies, methods of comparative analysis and systematization, a sociological study, a method of generalization, and grouping.
