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.
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.
SFI Circular – Value creation in a green economy
Norway and the EU are prioritising a Circular Economy agenda to deliver the next generation of jobs, growth and investment. Research funds, innovation support, consumer demands and legislative requirements will provide opportunities for those businesses using resources more productively.
COMET - Conversion between Magnetic, Electric, and Thermal energies in phase-transforming materials
This project aims to develop a radically new technology for harvesting low-temperature heat. Such heat is available in huge amounts from renewable sources (e.g. geothermal and solar) as well as in many industrial and domestic processes.
ENSUREAL - Integrated cross-sectorial approach for environmentally sustainable and resource-efficient alumina production
The goal of the Ensureal EU project, is to ensure zero waste production of alumina in Europe. This will be done by developing a zero-waste process for alumina production that can handle a wider range of bauxite than the existing process. The process will minimise the environmental impact of bauxite mining and alumina production.
OPTIMALS – Optimal design and production of lightweight and high-performance aluminium-steel structural components
The main goal of the OPTIMALS project is to enable multi-material solutions for high-performance aluminium-steel structural components with a total reduction of weight and manufacturing cost.
CO2 storage data consortium – sharing data from CO2 storage projects
Sharing of reference datasets from pioneering CO2 storage projects is essential to accelerate improved understanding, build capacity, reduce costs and minimize uncertainties associated with CO2 storage in deep geological formations.
HeatEx - Sheet ingot materials for ultra-thin automotive heat-exchangers
Modern vehicles contain up to ten different heat-exchangers, sometimes more. Due to advanced requirements with respect to product's characteristics, aluminum brazed products are clearly dominant in the heat-exchanger industry. An increasing demand for new alloys is linked to the global vehicle development and production. This project aims at development of new Al-Mn series sheet ingot materials for heat-exchangers with a microstructure that allows down-gauging to 120 micrometres for tube materials and 40 micrometres for fins.
