Webinar series highlights public acceptance insights

2012-08-01 15:08 by Anja Reitz

Over the past three years, the Institute has worked in partnership with the CSIRO, and a range of international research organisations, to conduct social science research into public awareness and acceptance of CCS. This webinar will provide an overview of the findings arising from this large body of research. The presentation will address ideas for communicating and engaging on CCS projects as well as provide insights into reasons for public support or opposition of CCS projects. There are a number of recommendations that have arisen from this research, and Peta and Anne-Maree will present key points for CCS project developers.

Throughout July, the Institute hosted two webinars focused on aspects of capture and storage technologies. On 11 July 2012, Carl Bozutto, an advisor on carbon capture for the Institute, gave an informative webinar looking at the fundamentals of chemical looping carbon capture and the state of play regarding this promising capture technology. Carl also shared his perspective on the technology’s readiness.

On 31 July 2012, Jim Underschultz from ANLEC R&D and Sunil Varma from CSIRO Earth Science and Resource Engineering presented a webinar focusing on basin resource management for carbon storage. The webinar provided a comprehensive overview of the work being completed by the CSIRO, Curtin University and ANLEC R&D to understand the structural, stratigraphic and geomechanical aspects of CO2 injection and storage on adjacent natural resources. A recording of this webinar will be made available on the Institute’s website shortly.
