Expert perceptions of public engagement with Carbon Capture and Storage

Dimitrios Xenias & Lorraine E Whitmarsh
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is widely seen as a key technology for mitigating climate change. This research comprises a dataset formed of two parts, which stem from mixed-methods research (comprising expert interviews and an online survey) to elucidate CCS experts' perceptions and rationales, and expose CCS expert views of public engagement. The first part of the dataset presents the results of qualitative analysis of qualitative interviews (N=13) from experts who are active in the...

Public perceptions of Carbon Capture and Storage

Dimitrios Xenias & Lorraine E Whitmarsh
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) involves trapping carbon dioxide (CO2) from power generation and heavy industrial processes and directing it into long-term geological storage (e.g. in depleted oil fields or saline aquifers). In doing so, CCS could facilitate global carbon abatement efforts. Yet, it remains controversial with high-profile public opposition to particular CCS developments. This dataset contains findings from a large-scale international experimental study of public perceptions of CCS. The study examined how individual, geographical...
