Launch of Sweden's largest carbon capture and storage plant
On May 26, Sweden’s largest test facility for CO2-capture began operations at Preem's refinery in Lysekil. The entire value chain will now be analyzed – from the capture of carbon dioxide to its storage – in the pilot research project ‘Preem CCS’. The outcome of the project will enable more companies to use the technology and reduce their CO2 emissions.

Getting the body to make its own cancer drugs
Imagine that we could instruct our bodies to make the drugs they need themselves. The gene technology that makes this possible is called mRNA therapy, which may become a major tool in the treatment of multiple diseases. Norwegian researchers are currently helping to develop a drug of this kind to treat the most aggressive form of breast cancer.
