|Resumen : ||Introduction: This report presents the results of a study aimed at characterizing public attitudes towards CCS technologies in Spain and two Spanish regions. Based on survey data from a representative sample of the population, we examine levels of awareness and familiarity with CCS technologies, emotional reactions and beliefs about CCS costs and benefits as well as overall evaluation, acceptance and support to CCS technologies. We also examine the factors influencing public acceptance of the technology.
Method: The study is based on a cross-sectional survey with a sample of the general population in Spain (n = 963) and two Spanish regions. The implementation was carried out via an online panel from a market research company. The questionnaire is based on the analytical model of “acceptance of technologies” (Huijts, Molin and Steg, 2012), with elements of the Information Choice Questionnaire and a review of international studies on public perception of CCS.
Results: The data show the existence of a low level of familiarity with technology, but also the existence of a high interest in it. The initial attitude towards CCS is positive and, after receiving information, the general evaluation of the technology is neutral to positive. From the attitude towards CCS, it is possible to classify individuals into supporters (38%), neutral (34%) and opponents (28%). The main determinants of acceptance of CCS are positive and negative emotions as well as the perception of risks and benefits
associated with CCS. In turn, emotions and perceptions of benefits and risks are influenced by trust in industry and government, personal relevance attributed to technology and, to a lesser extent, pro-environmental and pro-technology beliefs.
Conclusions: Understanding the concerns and beliefs of individuals regarding CCS technology is a first step in any active public involvement strategy in relation to this technology. Future strategies of public involvement in the field of CCS should aim to foster a greater cognitive, emotional and behavioural immersion among the general public in technology, as well as among communities hosting CO2 storage sites.|
