All Hydrogen Technologies needed to reach Net Zero
Brussels/Trondheim, 4 mai 2021 – A new study carried out by SINTEF and European partners shows that all hydrogen technologies will play an important role in Europe reaching its zero emissions goals by 2050. The study also shows that to reach these goals in a cost-effective way, it will be necessary to store, by 2050, 1000 times as much CO2 as the first phase of the Longship project plans for.
Europe's largest PEM electrolyser nearing completion
The REFHYNE project is about to complete the construction of Europe's largest PEM electrolyser. The starting signal to produce green hydrogen on an industrial scale will be given on July 2 2021.
StoRIES attempts to build up a unique Storage Research Infrastructure Eco-System in Europe
To address the European Green Deal challenges in the field of energy storage, a proposal has been submitted as part of EERA Joint Programme on Energy Storage. The consortium includes 16 partners and 31 beneficiaries from 17 countries all having a vast background in all the energy storage technologies (electrochemical, chemical, thermal, mechanical and superconducting magnetic storages).
Collaborating to establish an innovation centre for zero- and low-emission aviation
The Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority, Avinor, the Federation of Norwegian Industries and SINTEF are joining forces to establish an innovation and testing centre that will seek to promote the development of sustainable aviation and thus reduce emissions from aviation while creating new jobs.
Right ore choice may create lower emissions
Metal production generates considerable emissions of greenhouse gases. But the type of ore used in production can make a big difference.
SINTEF researcher appointed as a fellow at AIMBE
Ruth Schmid is one of the leading researchers in nanomedicine in Europe and the list of international top positions in chemistry and nanomedicine has grown throughout her career. Now, she has been appointed another prestigious role: Fellow at The American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
Bacteria-based concrete offers climate benefits
Ten cubic kilometres of concrete, equivalent to the volume of Mount Everest, are used in construction projects every year, resulting in huge volumes of emissions. But a new eco-friendly cement may help to reduce our global climate footprint.
Silicon for solar cells becoming more environmentally friendly
New discoveries are making silicon production cleaner, and solar cells of the future will become even more environmentally friendly.
How safe are the new Covid vaccines?
The new vaccines designed to combat the Covid-19 virus have been developed in record time, causing some people to be sceptical of taking them. Should we be worried about side effects? Norwegian SciTech News has been talking to two research scientists about this issue.
