You are invited to participate in a web-based online survey. This survey is part of a study conducted by the Institute for Future Energy and Material Flow Systems (IZES) gGmbH within the WaterProof Project funded by the Horizon Europe Framework Programme (Grant number 101058578). 

About the Research Institute

IZES gGmbH is a non-profit research institute based in Germany that aims to promote science and research in sustainable energy and material flow systems. 

The Department of Environmental Psychology studies people’s thinking, feeling and acting in human-technology-environment systems.

Project Information 

WaterProof (urban WAste and water Treatment Emission Reduction by utilizing CO2 for the PROduction Of Formate derived chemicals) Project proposes a resource efficient solution converting carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from wastewater processing into green consumer products, such as cleaning products. This project enables the closing of the wastewater carbon loop and the shift from fossil to renewable carbon sources. It hereby supports the transition towards a climate-neutral Europe and an effective and truly circular economy. 

The study 

This study aims to explore public perceptions about cleaning products from wastewater-converted CO2 and understand the factors influencing these perceptions. This survey assesses consumers’ willingness to buy or use such cleaning products. It takes about 15 minutes to complete the survey. The results of this survey will contribute to identifying potential barriers and acceptance levels of wastewater-based cleaning products.
