Renewable energy Bioenergy
SINTEF has decades of research experience in environmentally friendly and energy- and cost-effective bioenergy
SINTEF's expertise helps industry, government and other organizations to assess and implement the use of biomass and waste for energy purposes. Putting these energy sources to work requires the knowledge that SINTEF can provide to ensure bioenergy is both environmentally friendly and highly efficient.
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.
NorEUnergy - Establishment of Norwegian-EU networks in the bioenergy field
NorEUnergy II will focus on increasing the mobilization and participation of Norwegian actors in the field of bioenergy, as one of the prioritized scientific areas in the new integrated SET-Plan.
TheONE - design of wood burning stoves
The aim of the project is to develop a standardized wood stove combustion chamber for each industry partner, ultra-flexible and capable of complete and clean combustion independently of the wood stove exterior design, to significantly save development time and total production costs for manufacturers.
Biomass to energy (BtE) and waste to energy (WtE) plants in Norway need to comply with stricter emission limits and/or adjust to tighter profit margins, and EU have implemented a further reduction of emission limits from medium (scale) combustion plants.
Building the foundation in Trondheim for the green transition
For the first time, a major European research infrastructure project is being led by a country from outside the EU.
Norwegian to lead energy research in Europe
Nils Røkke, Director of Sustainability at SINTEF, is the new Chairman of the European Energy Research Alliance.
European researchers want to extend funding for renewables
An international team of researchers has concluded that operational funding should continue to be provided for the production of renewable energy in Europe, provided that such support is progressively reduced over time.
