Building and infrastructure Construction engineering
HINDCON is an EU-funded project, studying 3D-printing of concrete in the construction sector. SINTEF’s role in the project is to research how the new 3D-printing construction will affect the construction process, in terms of lean manufacturing but also how the new processes affect the construction workers.
LORCENIS – Long Lasting Reinforced Concrete for Energy Infrastructure under Severe Operating Conditions
The main goal of the LORCENIS project is to develop long lasting reinforced concrete for energy infrastructures under extreme operating conditions.
Air could be the world’s next battery
Storing compressed air in sealed tunnels and mines could be a way of storing energy in the future – if an EU project in which Norway is a partner is successful.
Eco-cement from Norwegian clay
Blue clay from Norway is emerging as a climate-friendly alternative to cements used to make concrete – turning a waste material into a resource.
