Applied research, technology and innovation
Our 2000 employees offer expertise in:
Algae can outcompete soya and become big business
Establishment of the Norwegian Centre for Plankton Technology has yet to be completed, but there has nevertheless been high levels of interest from both industry and research.
Scientists: - Gas will make metal production greener
The Norwegian metal industry must incorporate gas into its processes, if the industry is to reach its target of zero emissions by 2050, scientists at SINTEF and NTNU claim.
Monitoring algae can prevent fish losses
A new simulation tool may prevent damage to fish during delousing.

SINTEF offers world-leading laboratories within a broad spectre of technology areas. Our advanced laboratories range from development of microelectronics and studies at a nano-level, to one of the world's largest ocean basin laboratories.
Multiphase Flow Laboratory
The laboratory's main activity is flow assurance related research for the petroleum industry. It has contributed significantly to the development of multiphase flow simulators, and this is still an ongoing activity. Development of hydrate cold flow technology and sand transport studies are currently also main topics.
ELEGANCY – Enabling a Low-Carbon Economy via Hydrogen and CCS
As the only technology that can substantially reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels, CCS is an essential component in 114 of 120 scenarios with 0.9–2.3°C global warming above pre-industrial levels in the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report.
OPTIMALS – Optimal design and production of lightweight and high-performance aluminium-steel structural components
The main goal of the OPTIMALS project is to enable multi-material solutions for high-performance aluminium-steel structural components with a total reduction of weight and manufacturing cost.
HVDC Inertia provission
Future power systems are facing new challenges when traditional thermal generation units are replaced by renewable energy sources with power electronic grid interfaces.
