Richard H Heyn

Chief Scientist

After my education in the United States and a few years in industry in Norway, I started at SINTEF in 1998. I started working in the field of carbon dioxide capture and utilization (CCU) in 2000. I am currently coordinator of two EU projects. I have been involved in the European private-public partnership SPIRE (now Processes4Planet) since 2013, and I am currently vice-chair for Circularity Innovation in the Advisory and Programming Group.
