Materials Biomass and biomaterials
Fermentation laboratory at SINTEF
SINTEF has a nationally leading research laboratory for development of microbial and cell based production processes. The laboratory has robotic equipment for miniaturized cultivation, large capacity incubators for shake flasks, laboratory fermentors (1-3 L) equipped for extensive process control and monitoring, and a pilot plant with two fermenters (50 and 300 L) for scale-up studies and small productions.
High throughput screening facility, Trondheim
The robotic screening facility at SINTEF are optimized for high throughput analytical and cultivation work and enables us to process of thousands of samples or cultures per day.
Mass spectrometry - Advanced research-based analyses
We perform research-based mass spectrometric (MS) and high-throughput (HTS) analyses for SINTEF, academia and industry.
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.
ResMap – Antibiotic resistance in Norwegian poultry production; Improved knowledge by advanced HTS-based technology platforms
In the ResMap project we will perform studies that will contribute to increased understanding of bacterial antibiotic resistance in Norwegian food production, in relation to consumption of poultry risk products and impacts on human health.
Mar3Bio – Biorefinery and biotechnological exploitation of marine biomasses
The marine biomasses used in Mar3Bio are brown algae and crustacean byproducts which are sources of the marine polysaccharides alginate and chitosan. These abundant but underexploited renewable biomasses have great potential for production of high value biomolecules.
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.
On the hunt for new antibiotics
A Norwegian-Danish project aims to find better weapons against life-threating multi-resistant bacteria.
