SINTEF Industry Process Technology
RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
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 industries and jobs. SINTEF can offer access to unique infrastructure and academic networks. We use our process technology expertise across the entire value chain from raw materials through processing to products to increase value creation in industry and solve tomorrow's challenges.
Multiphase Flow Laboratory
SINTEF Multiphase Flow Laboratory is one of the world's largest multiphase test facilities.
High Throughput laboratory - Oslo
The High Throughput laboratory can be divided in three main activates: 1) design and construction of high-throughput equipment, 2) parallel synthesis of materials, and 3) parallel screening of materials properties. We provide automated custom made high precisions equipment for a wide range of applications. Development and application of combinatorial and parallel approaches are used to accelerate the research and development of a large number of industrially relevant processes.
Hydrate Management - New understanding of hydrate phenomena in oil systems to enable safe operation within the hydrate zone
For the O&G industry, risk-based hydrate management can be a viable strategy for significantly widening the operational window. The traditional approach has been to avoid entering the hydrate region (high pressure and low temperature) altogether by temperature control (insulation and heating), chemicals (methanol and glycols) and pressure control. Although ensuring safe operations these remedies are costly for longer and colder transport conditions and not necessarily environmentally sound. This project will help meet demands of marginal field developments by advancing the new fundamental knowledge of gas hydrate properties and develop methods for risk assessment, minimize environmental impact and cost-effective hydrate management.
COGNITWIN - Cognitive plants through proactive self-learning hybrid digital twins
COGNITWIN will set a new standard for the design, development and operation of the European process industry by introducing a platform for virtual component-based architecture that integrates IoT, Big data, AI, smart sensors, machine learning and communication technologies, all connected to a novel paradigm of self-learning hybrid models with proactive cognitive capabilities.
The Norwegian industry is among the cleanest in the world and great efforts are made to reduce emissions even further. To this end, many different kinds of challenges must be overcome, and one often overlooked difficulty lies in measurements. The industry relies on measurement data in their endeavor to reduce emissions but when uncertainties are high, the results offer no guidance. The PAHssion project focus on measurements of one group of pollutants called "PAH", Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons. The objective is to develop more reliable PAH measurement methods and thereby improve emission control and reporting. This will be achieved by improved analytical performance and reduced uncertainty of measurements.
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.
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.
New Gemini centre gives greater clout to developing hydrochemical process technology
SINTEF Industri, NTNU and UiO, three partners in the new Gemini Centre HyProS “Hydrochemical process technology in the circular economy”, kicked off the new venture from Herøya Industrial Park last week.
