Award for “the world's most green solar panel”
SINTEF has played a part in revolutionising solar panel production – and here’s the proof! In connection with the Solar Impulse Foundation’s recently-published report, the “Eco-Solar” EU Project was awarded the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label” for developing efficient and more environmentally friendly solar panel concepts. SINTEF is the coordinator for this project.
This is what you need to know about CCS – Carbon Capture and Storage
Why is there so much talk about storing CO2 underground? Doesn’t it cost more than it’s worth? Here we provide the research scientists’ answers and explanations of why CCS is climate technology that we are completely dependent on. And yes, this can be performed in a safe manner.
C-capture to work with SINTEF in Norway to validate its carbon capture technology
C-Capture, the designer of world-leading and innovative chemical processes for carbon dioxide removal, is to work with Norway’s SINTEF on a new phase of its research and development programme.
Recently-developed material makes hydrogen production more efficient
Norwegian scientists have developed a material which can make hydrogen from water vapor, instead of liquid water. It pays off, because heat is cheaper than electricity.
Seaweed and kelp are more than food
Algae cultivation is popular, but good uses for the raw material are still lacking. Researchers in Norway are set to do something about this, with the goal of fully using this resource.

Enabling the transition to a circular economy
Norway and the EU are prioritising a circular economy agenda to deliver the next generation of jobs, growth and investment. But how can we enable this transition to a circular economy?
Carbon capture is cheaper than ever
According to a new report, many years of research effort have resulted in significant reductions in the cost of full-scale carbon capture and storage.
Could the chloride process replace the Hall-Héroult process in aluminium production?
At present, the Hall-Héroult process is universally used in the production of aluminium. It is an electrolytic process in which aluminium oxide is dissolved in molten cryolite (Na3AlF6) and then reduced electrolytically to aluminium at a temperature of around 960°C. The process uses carbon anodes that are consumed during the electrolysis, forming CO2. Aluminium oxide (alumina) is produced from bauxite, an alumina-rich clay mineral, by means of the Bayer process.
