Germany’s first CO2 hub planned for Bremen


Norwegian energy company CO2 Management AS (CO2M) will build a carbon dioxide (CO2) transshipment hub in the city of Bremen, Germany for the utilisation or storage of captured CO2, marking the first facility of its kind in the country.

The project aims to reduce carbon emissions across hard-to-abate industries such as cement, concrete, chemicals, steel, and waste management.
