RGU’s systematic review is published

RGU’s systematic review of articles on community acceptance and social impact of CCUS has been published. ConsenCUS partner Robert Gordon University has published an article in the journal PLoS ONE describing a systematic meta-narrative literature review on this topic, based on its work on a qualitative assessment of community awareness and acceptance of industrial innovations and CCUS developments more generally. The review concluded that every CCUS project is complex and thus it is not advisable to provide best practice guidelines that guarantee certain outcomes. This systematic review shared recommendations in the literature on how best to promote community involvement in CCUS projects and similar place-based industrial innovation projects. These recommendations focus on the importance of transparency, acknowledging uncertainty and encouraging collaboration.
