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

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.
SUPER PV - CoSt redUction and enhanced PERformance of PV systems
SUPER PV is pursuing an ambitious bus realistic goal for innovative PV system cost reduction and consequently significant LCOE reduction (26%-37%) by adopting hybrid approach combining technological innovations and Data Management methods along the PV value chain.
OLIDIGRAPH - Optical Limiter Device Based on Innovative Graphene Derived Materials
Lasers are currently indispensable for many military and civil applications and there is a considerable need for a material to be included into a device for laser damage prevention of optoelectronic devices and for people protection. The overall objectives of this project are to validate a laboratory scale technology for synthesis of an innovative class of graphene based nonlinear optical materials in visible and infrared domains, and to build a device that incorporate the synthesized materials.
eForFuel - Fuels from electricity: de novo metabolic conversion of electrochemically produced formate into hydrocarbons
For biorefined fuels to fully replace fossil carbons, we must identify feedstock sources which are essentially unlimited in capacity and scalability and are independent of agriculture and forestry land use. Here, we propose to use electricity – preferably produced from renewable sources and at off pick hours – as the sole energy source for microbial growth and the conversion of CO2 into fuels.
