Energy and Environment
We have expert knowledge and experience on the environment, climate and building process.
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.

International collaboration for smarter and greener urban logistics
SINTEF and NTNU will in collaboration with the University of Washington, the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers find new solutions for urban logistics, services for last-mile distribution, and how to integrate urban logistics into public planning processes and the planning of future cities.
We must reuse the resources in our wastewater
Resources from wastewater must be better utilized to ensure access to clean water, enough food and good living conditions for all. Researchers in five countries are about to demonstrate circular economic models for how wastewater resources can be utilised in a water-smart society.
Cement factories can put the brakes on global plastic pollution
Researchers believe that plastic refuse can be used as fuel in cement factories in Asia. If this works, it may provide a solution to two of the planet’s biggest environmental problems – plastic in the oceans and high levels of coal consumption.
