Green light for plant-based food packaging
Bioplastic packaging that extends the shelf life of food and tells us when it is no longer fit to eat will result in less waste.
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.
Lab for testing membranes, fuel cells and electrolysers
In the lab in Oslo we can test membranes, fuel cells and electrolysers under real operating conditions. Experiments can be carried out at pressures up to 30 bars and temperatures up to 1100°C.
Process Metallurgical Laboratories
Modern production of high quality metallic materials requires advanced knowledge of pyro-metallurgical processes. SINTEF optimises metallurgical processes and raw materials, using a combination of laboratory scale and pilot scale experimental techniques, combined with thermochemical modelling.
Tribology is the multidisciplinary science on wear, friction and lubrication of interacting surfaces in relative motion. Research in tribology is often highly dependent on the final application. The mission of the Tribology Lab at SINTEF/NTNU is to adapt our knowledge and equipment to our clients’ needs.
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.
4REFINERY - Scenarios for integration of bio-liquids in existing REFINERY processes
4REFINERY will develop and demonstrate the production of next generation biofuels from more efficient primary liquefaction routes integrated with upgraded downstream (hydro)refining processes to achieve overall carbon yields of >45%. The consortium will aim for successful deployment into existing refineries, including delivering a comprehensive toolbox for interfacing with existing refinery models.
The main goal of KOPROD is to demonstrate methods and technology solutions for future competitive production of complex, small and medium volume products for cost-sensitive markets. The project is financed by the Norwegian Research Council's BIA-program.
