SINTEF Community Clean water
Poor water quality, water stress and environmental problems pose a threat to development and welfare in many regions. We all depend on water for drinking and food production. There is an increasing focus on water resource management, improving water infrastructure and water treatment.
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.
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.
Wastewater fertilisers to the aid of farmers
The circular economy can boost profits in the water management sector, and at the same time provide farmers both in Norway and around the world with cheaper fertiliser.
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.
