Welcome to Accsept

The Accsept project is funded by DG Research of the European Commission under the Sixth Framework Programme.

The aim of the ACCSEPT project is to contribute to the timely and responsible application of CO2 capture and storage by measuring EU social acceptance; assisting with the establishment of CCS guidelines for the EU Emission Trading System; and by identifying and addressing gaps in existing socio-economic studies.

Thematic areas included in the work are legal, regulatory, social, economic and cross-cutting issues.

The final report from the ACCSEPT project, covering work package 5, is now available.
