Bellona report: North European cities aim at zero emissions with CCUS
Together with The Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance (CNCA) NIRAS and five Northern European
capitals, Bellona has launched a report, “Cities Aim at Zero Emissions: How carbon capture,
storage and utilisation can help cities go carbon neutral”
Leaders - CCUS in the U.S.
