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.
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.
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.
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.
DACOMAT - Damage Controlled Composite Materials
The objective of DACOMAT is to develop more damage tolerant and damage predictable low cost composite materials in particular aimed for used in large load carrying constructions like bridges, buildings, wind-turbine blades and offshore structures. The developed materials and condition monitoring solutions will provide high tolerance for manufacturing imperfections and high capacity to sustain damages. This will enable large composite structures to be manufactured and maintained at low cost.
REFINE - Regulatory Science Framework for Nano(bio)material-based Medical Products and Devices
REFINE will pioneer a Regulatory Science Framework (RSF) for the risk-benefit assessment of NBM-based medicinal products and medical devices.
Development of materials and processes for 3D-printing of components for fire stopping vents
The objective of this project is to develop an intumescent material and a corresponding production process for automated industrial production of components for a patented type of fire stopping vents for buildings.
