    Life in Norway Show Episode 46: An American researcher living in Norway joins the show to talk about carbon capture and storage technologies. Norway is about to buy into the concept of CO2 capture, transport and storage in a big way.

American research scientist Amy Brunsvold has lived in Norway for more than 10 years, and now works at SINTEF Energy Research in Trondheim.

Of course we also chat about what it's like to work as a research scientist in Norway, and what Amy thinks of life in Norway. Full Show Notes: https://www.lifeinnorway.net/ccs-co2-storage/
