Alpakka - Circular Aluminium Packaging in Norway
Aluminium is extensively used in food packaging because it provides a unique durability. Longer durability leads to less food wastage. The challenge is to make sure that the aluminium packaging is reclaimed and goes back into the circuit. The main objective of the Alpakka project is to establish a Norwegian flagship demonstrator for Circular Economy in practice, which will increase the aluminium packaging circularity in Norway byvalue-chain cooperation between collectors, food producers/packaging designers and aluminiumrecyclers as well as through engaging the consumers.
LowEmission Research Centre
The LowEmission Research Centre will develop new technologies and concepts for offshore energy systems, energy efficiency and integration with renewable power production technologies for application on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).
Immuno – New Methods for cancer immunotherapy
The main goal of this project is to develop SINTEF’s competence within biotechnology and drug discovery/development to also include immunotherapies.
3D-PIEZO – Lead-free piezoelectric devices by additive manufacturing (3D printing and multilayer)
The 3D-PIEZO project aims to develop a manufacturing chain for 3D printing and multilayer lamination of piezoelectric elements for ultrasonics and other applications. The project will apply lead-free (Pb-free) high performance piezoelectric ceramic materials. SINTEF is working closely with two small companies: Ceramic Powder Technology AS, a Norwegian producer of advanced ceramic oxide powders, and Cerhum S.A., a Belgian specialist in 3D printing of ceramics
HEATER - High entropy alloys for thermal, electronic and optical applications
The goal of the HEATER project is to design high-entropy alloys for functional applications using a high-throughput approach based on theoretical, computational and experimental data.
ANSWER - New thermoelectric ANtimonides and Silicides With EntRopy stabilization
The goal of ANSWER is to develop thermoelectric materials with impact on global energy management by stabilizing with entropy new covalent compounds.
CARBIOMEMBEX - Novel biocatalytic membrane technology for the efficient removal of CO2 in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems
CO2 removal from process water is an essential component of land-based aquaculture. CARBIOMEMBEX aims at developing novel technology for CO2 separation in aquaculture by combining state-of-the-art membrane technology and biocatalysis into innovative enzyme-membrane contactor systems for efficient CO2 removal from water.
Clean air is a basic necessity for human existence. Poor air quality has accounted for over 4.2 million deaths globally in 2016. As such, there is a need for highly sensitive gas sensors which can be integrated into an early detection system, should air quality fall below predefined thresholds.
CROCODILE - first of a kind commercial Compact system for the efficient Recovery Of CObalt Designed with novel Integrated LEading technologies
Cobalt is used in many applications that support the shift to a low-carbon economy and the demand for cobalt is rapidly increasing. The CROCODILE project aims to drastically reduce the supply risk of cobalt for the European industries by increasing the efficiency of recovery and extraction processes for cobalt, both from primary and secondary sources. CROCODILE strives to achieve this with lower energy costs and environmental impacts, providing solutions with low capital investment costs, as well as maximizing the exploitation of ‘local’ waste.
