Aluminium is used in a large range of applications like buildings and constructions, packaging, electronics and oil & gas platforms. Particularly in transport applications (automotive, trains, aircraft, ships) aluminium contributes to a lower CO2 emissions by reduction of weight. Norway is a large producer of aluminium, and the industry, NTNU and SINTEF are internationally recognized for their expertise within aluminium production, processing and application.

SINTEF offers expertise along the entire value chain from primary production to product development and performance, including:
