GOMPLAR - Governance of Marine Litter in the Arctic
The main objective of GOMPLAR is to describe, compare and analyze two regional international regulatory and governance frameworks addressing marine plastic litter in order to draw conclusions for possible solutions in the Arctic, seeking synergies and interplay mechanisms between a possible circumpolar arrangement and the two regional ones.
Compareit addresses how new production systems should be regulated, administered, and where they could be best located, which are highly relevant questions for a sustainable development of the industry that safeguards other societal interests and competing claims to space.
NordSalt will assess the nature, diversity, extent and long-term changes of Nordic coastal marsh habitats, to evaluate their role in climate regulation and to assess their vulnerability and change in ecological structure and functions under future climate warming scenarios, local environmental pressures and management decisions.
COASTAL squared – a Norwegian perspective in a network of coastal-rural synergetic case areas across Europe
COASTAL Squared provides a Norwegian perspective to the H2020 project COASTAL by examining the interactions of rural and coastal areas in a Norwegian context.
PLASTICENE - Development of tools for increased resource utilisation, circularity and regulatory support of plastic use in Norway
PLASTICENE will build new knowledge and address processes important for increased plastic circularity and effective plastic waste management with the aim of supporting improved plastic material utilization and protecting the environment from plastic pollution.
SusWoodStoves - Sustainable wood stoves through stove, building integration and value chain optimisation
The overall objective is sustainable wood stoves through stove, building integration and value chain optimisation.
Logic Grouting is based on a new adapted grouting strategy for pre-grouting of rock mass in tunnelling, developed from research in the TIGHT project.
OneImpact focuses on innovations in cumulative impact studies and applications to aid the conservation and sustainable management of reindeer in Scandinavia.
Study of the potential for reduced greenhouse gas emissions and the transition to a low-emission society through circular economy strategies
In this study SINTEF has focuses on circular economic opportunities that are expected to have a large potential for reducing the climate gas emissions associated with Norwegian consumption and production. Over a dozen circular strategies were selected and analysed as case studies with both the consumer perspective and the industry perspectives and their potential impact on reduction of green house gas emissions investigated. The study found that implementing the studied strategies could have a significant effect on reducing Norwegian greenhouse gas emissions, both within Norway and outside of Norway as Norwegian consumption is heavily dependent on global production and supply chains.
