In this project, an interdisciplinary team of natural, technical, and economic scientists will investigate the potential of carbon capture and storage (CCS) in ocean crust rocks. In particular, the efficiency of this storage method as well as its long-term safety has not yet been clarified and will be investigated. CCS is considered a promising technology to meet the climate targets of the Paris Agreement. Within this project, natural, technical and socio-scientific aspects of the potential and feasibility of this storage method will be analyzed.
New technologies and especially interventions in nature require a high degree of acceptance in society. Especially with regard to possible political measures, a precise understanding of the societal acceptance is just as crucial as an understanding of the costs and benefits. The working group "Innovation and Structural Change" is involved in the project by conducting a survey study as well as so-called 'citizens-jury' workshops in order to gain insights into the acceptance of this technology among the population. In addition, the economic and ecological advantages and disadvantages will be quantitatively analyzed within the framework of a cost-benefit analysis.
The project is a joint project within the framework of the German Alliance for Marine Research (DAM), is funded by the BMBF and coordinated by the MARUM. The project is funded under the title "Alternate scenarios, Innovative technologies, and Monitoring approaches for Sub-Seabed Storage of carbon dioxide (AIMS3)" for 36 months. Members of the consortium are the University of Bremen, GEOMAR Kiel, Fraunhofer IPM Freiburg and Sea&Sun Technology GmbH.
