The study consists of a review of academic, industry, and government publications, along with in-depth interviews with decision-makers from a variety of different sectors related to CCUS policy and implementation. The authors then identify several “risk issues” facing CCUS and how to overcome them. Risk issues of highest concern to stakeholders include: how to achieve tolerable costs; incomplete knowledge and inadequate information provision; industry pace of innovation and demonstration; perceptions of other mitigation alternatives; and fairness with respect to the distribution of costs and benefits of CCUS.
