SINTEF unites world-leading expertise in understanding of material properties, to the requirements of the end-products characteristics.
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
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.
SINTEF has expertise along the entire value chain from manufacturing to product for most industrial metals and metal alloys.
A circular economy aims to keep products, components, and materials at their highest utility and value at all times.
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 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.
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...
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.
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...
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.
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...
Not only are they high above us – they also offer us great benefits. From SINTEF’s new solar panel laboratory, you can see all across the city of Trondheim. Here, conditions are optimal for research into solar panel performance at Nordic latitudes.
40 network partners from 16 countries will work together to reduce CO2 emissions from industry in Europe
New EU project will help reduce CO2 from industrial clusters and hubs in Europe using carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS).
The fishing and aquaculture industry in Norway has larger CO2 emissions than civil aviation, according to a new report (link in Norwegian) presented by ZeroKyst at Nor-Fishing 2022.
AdaPfab – Adaptive control for robotic prefabrication
The main objective of the AdaPfab project is to develop a sustainable and cost-effective prefabrication process, enabling the mass production of offshore wind substructures.
HYDROGENi is a centre for environment-friendly energy research (FME) dedicated to the research and innovations within hydrogen and ammonia needed to meet the 2030 and 2050 goals of the Norwegian hydrogen road map.
The goal of the project is coating development and high-tech equipment integration into the production line of Mg-Wheels in Latvia for the coating of ultra-light and environmentally friendly forged magnesium automotive and motorcycle wheels.
4REFINERY will develop and demonstrate the production of next generation biofuels from more efficient primary liquefaction routes integrated with upgraded downstream (hydro)refining processes to achieve overall carbon yields of >45%. The consortium...
The objective of WASTE2ROAD is to develop a new generation of cost-effective biofuels from a range of low-cost biogenic residues and waste fractions (contaminated wood, black liquor from pulp and paper industry, and municipal solid organic waste incl...
The objective of DACOMAT is to develop more damage tolerant and damage predictable low cost composite materials in particular aimed for used in large load carrying constructions like bridges, buildings, wind-turbine blades and offshore structures...
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.
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...
We perform research-based mass spectrometric (MS) and high-throughput (HTS) analyses for SINTEF, academia and industry.
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 Research-based Innovation (SFI)
The purpose of the SFI is to build up and strengthen Norwegian research groups that work in close collaboration with partners from innovative industry and innovative public enterprises.
- SFI Industrial Biotechnology
- SFI SWIPA
- Metal Production
- Centre for Advanced Structural Analysis (CASA).
- Sustainable Innovations for Automated Manufacturing of Multi-Material Products
- Industrial Catalysis Science and Innovation for a competitive and sustainable process industry (iCSI)
- Center for innovative ultrasound solutions for health care, maritime, and oil & gas industries.
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.
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.
