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.
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.
Transportation for the 21st Century
What will the future transport system look like? SINTEF will contribute to answering this, through participation in the government-designated strategy process Transport21.
This is what you need to know about CCS – Carbon Capture and Storage
Why is there so much talk about storing CO2 underground? Doesn’t it cost more than it’s worth? Here we provide the research scientists’ answers and explanations of why CCS is climate technology that we are completely dependent on. And yes, this can be performed in a safe manner.
NTNU will lead European sustainability project
Through the Research Centre on Zero Emission Neighbourhoods (FME ZEN) in Smart Cities, NTNU has received funding from the EU to research sustainable plus energy neighbourhoods in Europe. SINTEF and OBOS are partners.
Enabling the transition to a circular economy
Norway and the EU are prioritising a circular economy agenda to deliver the next generation of jobs, growth and investment. But how can we enable this transition to a circular economy?
