Fuel of the future
Heavy-duty trucks will soon be driving around in Trondheim, Norway, fuelled by hydrogen created with solar power, and emitting only pure water vapour as “exhaust”. Not only will hydrogen technology revolutionize road transport, it will also enable ships and trains to run emission-free.
An energy-efficient cleaning robot
State-of-the-art solar cells are efficient – but are even more so when they are kept clean. A cleaning robot developed by Norwegian researchers enables solar panels to deliver at full capacity.
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.
New allergy test promises safer antibiotic use
Allergies to antibiotics are the commonest form of medication allergies and, in the worst cases, can result in anaphylaxis and death. SINTEF is participating in the development of a new allergy test that will make it easier to provide patients with safe and correct treatments.
SINTEF receives UN award for green leadership
After winning first prize in a UN competition, SINTEF will be leading a project to promote solar-powered electric vessels in North Africa and the Middle East.
TCM and SINTEF formalizes CCS collaboration
CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) and SINTEF have for years been heavily involved with Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) activities. They now enter into a co-operation agreement where their capabilities will be jointly presented to the market.
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.
Commercialising gas bubbles for cancer drug delivery
Researchers are now working to design stable micro-bubbles which, combined with ultrasound, can deliver cancer drugs straight to the target tumour.
