On the road to climate neutrality, it is not only renewable energies that play a decisive role, but also technologies like carbon capture and storage (CCS).

However, in industrial processes such as lime or cement production, CO2 cannot be avoided by using renewable electricity. A survey by the Wuppertal Institute now shows: If CCS is to be used for industrial processes, acceptance of the still young technology is surprisingly high among many people.
