In 2019, POM Oost-Vlaanderen performed a study on the socio-economic impacts of CCU. The study was done by Technopolis. The study compared 7 different CCU projects in Europe and predicted impacts in terms of economic value (up to 250 M€ local economic return) and jobs (up to 400 permanent jobs and 1600 temporary jobs). Also several hurdles and challenges were identified. The study can be consulted below.
