We possess expertise on roads, railways, harbors, tunnels, water supply and soil conditions where we build or travel.
Alternative Railway Electrification in Norway
As many European countries, Norway has still a significant length of non-electrified railways. New technologies like hydrogen fuel cells and batteries can be a better option than expensive catenary lines.
The main theme of the SiteCast project is "increased competitiveness for in-situ casting of concrete constructions".
HINDCON is an EU-funded project, studying 3D-printing of concrete in the construction sector. SINTEF’s role in the project is to research how the new 3D-printing construction will affect the construction process, in terms of lean manufacturing but also how the new processes affect the construction workers.
Your sewage is valuable muck
A world without phosphorous is a world without life. But phosphorous is a finite resource, so researchers are recovering it from sewage.
Making future transport more climate friendly
The world's transportation network is constantly growing. "Green asphalt" and sustainable bus transportation will ease the environmental impact of future transport routes.
