SINTEF to research ammonia as a green shipping fuel
SINTEF will work on solving research hurdles linked to the use of ammonia as a zero-emission fuel for the shipping sector. The Minister of Climate and Environment for Norway, Sveinung Rotevatn, announced at the end of last week that the project Ammonia Fuel Bunkering Network would receive NOK 89 million through the Green Platform Initiative.
NOK 120 million for the green shift in the aquaculture and fishery industry
The Norwegian Minister of Trade and Industry Iselin Nybø (V) and the Norwegian Minister of Education and Research Guri Melby (V) were in Trondheim yesterday to present NOK 120 million to the ZeroKyst project. Among other things, ZeroKyst will enable a Norwegian consortium to demonstrate solutions for hydrogen-electric vessels and mobile energy supply for fisheries and aquaculture.
Europe's largest PEM electrolyser for hydrogen production in operation – the capacity will tenfold the coming years
The REFHYNE project, backed by a European consortium, will accelerate hydrogen production, and contribute to Europe’s goal to achieve climate neutrality.
Major wind research centre kicks off its activities

SINTEF researchers awarded the prestigious RCS Horizon award
Chemists all over the world can now grow virtual crystals with the new software CrystalGrower. SINTEF's Duncan Akporiaye and Bjørnar Arstad are among the researchers that developed the software and were awarded this year's Horizon award for their achievement. The award is given by The Royal Chemistry Society (RCS).
New laboratory and SINTEF's battery researchers will boost Norwegian competitiveness on batteries
There is a global knowledge race in all parts of the value chain related to the production, use and reuse of batteries. The independent Norwegian research institute SINTEF is now investing NOK 45 million (4.5 million Euro) in a laboratory for the production and testing of battery cells that will open during 2021.
SINTEF and ACC join forces to make industry emissions-free
CO₂ emissions are difficult to avoid in several industrial processes, but with CCS technology these emissions can be removed. SINTEF and Aker Carbon Capture (ACC) are now continuing their collaboration to deliver the CO₂ capture solutions of the future.
CO2 as a raw material becomes a "game changer" for the industry
CO2 emissions equivalent to what 2,200 cars produce in a year can be turned into new products using biotechnology. In the EU project PyroCO2, the greenhouse gas CO2 will become a profitable business, at the same time the project will contribute to zero emissions and a sustainable economy.
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.
