SINTEF Industry


SINTEF Industry performs contract research and delivers solutions and services that create value for customers. With our cross-disciplinary knowledge base and advanced laboratories as a base, we develop – in close collaboration with our customers – technology and solutions within a broad range of research areas and industries.

Some of our prioritised research areas

Composite and polymer materials

Composite and polymer materials

SINTEF has expertise throughout the entire value chain from manufacturing to finished product for all types of plastics such as thermoplastics, thermoplastics, plastics composites, elastomers and gels.

Metallic materials

Metallic materials

SINTEF has expertise along the entire value chain from manufacturing to product for most industrial metals and metal alloys.

Circular Economy Research

Circular Economy Research

A circular economy aims to keep products, components, and materials at their highest utility and value at all times.

Industrial biotechnology

Industrial biotechnology

SINTEF's initiative within Industrial biotechnology contributes to ensure a future sustainable bio economy. In Industrial biotechnology enzymes and microorganisms are used to create products in the fields of fine- and bulk chemicals, pharmaceuticals...

Nanomedicine

Nanomedicine

Nanomedicine is the use of nanotechnology to prevent, diagnose and treat illness. SINTEF collaborates with industry and research organisations to develop nanomedicines for hard-to-treat diseases ranging from cancer to severe infections.

Process Technology

Process Technology

SINTEF works closely with industry and academia with the aim of reducing and eliminating emissions, cutting costs, making industrial processes more green and sustainable. In addition, we focus on innovation and advanced production to create new...

Hydrogen

Hydrogen

As a fuel, hydrogen is powerful enough to launch NASA’s space shuttles. It is also extremely environmentally friendly, as the only emission it produces when burned is water.

Batteries

Batteries

SINTEF performs research covering large parts of the battery value chain, including development of Li-ion technology, materials for new battery chemistries, battery cell design and prototypes, sensor technology, cooling and control systems (BMS) for...

Solar

Solar

SINTEF does research to investigate how we can exploit solar energy as a contribution to securing a reliable and sustainable energy supply for the future.

Drilling and wells

Drilling and wells

SINTEF combines theoretical work with laboratory experiments and field experience, and focuses on making results from the work available for operational team, in order to contribute to faster, safer and cheaper drilling and well operations while also...

Laboratories

Materials testing

Materials testing

We can test and characterise a wide range of different materials in our laboratories. Materials and components are bent, tensioned and compressed, and go through fracture- and fatigue tests.

Process Metallurgical Laboratories

Process Metallurgical Laboratories

Modern production of high quality metallic materials requires advanced knowledge of pyro-metallurgical processes. SINTEF optimises metallurgical processes and raw materials, using a combination of laboratory scale and pilot scale experimental...

Strategic Centres

SINTEF Industry is represented in the national research centers for environmentally friendly energy (FME) and research-based Innovation (SFI). We have several Gemini Centers in cooperation with NTNU in Trondheim and the University of Oslo.

Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME)
The objective of the scheme for FME is to establish time-limited research centres which conduct concentrated, focused and long-term research of high international calibre in order to solve specific challenges in the field.

Gemini centres
The Gemini Centres form a model for strategic cooperation in which scientific groups with parallel interests coordinate their scientific efforts and jointly operate their resources.

Other Centres

  • LowEmission - shall develop technology and methods to ensure that the O&G industry can meet its emission goals
