SINTEF Industry Sustainable Energy
RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
The transformation of the fossil-based energy sector with large greenhouse gas emission to clean energy is one of the greater global challenges. Our research area in sustainable energy covers technology within CCS, renewables, energy storage, hydrogen and fuel cells. The applied and innovation-driven research aim at making CCS and renewable technologies and energy systems reliable and affordable.
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.
MAGNIFICENT-Additively manufactured Magnetic High Entropy Alloys for Renewable Electricity
The aim ogf the project is to produce magnetic materials with superior and long-lasting magnetic properties based on high entropy alloys (HEA), using machine learning and additive manufacturing for materials selection and synthesis as well as high throughput materials characterisation at the micro and nano level.
Alternative Railway Electrification in Norway
As many European countries, Norway has still a significant length of non-electrified railways. New technologies like hydrogen fuel cells and batteries can be a better option than expensive catenary lines.
WASTE2ROAD - Biofuels from WASTE TO ROAD transport
The objective of WASTE2ROAD is to develop a new generation of cost-effective biofuels from a range of low-cost biogenic residues and waste fractions (contaminated wood, black liquor from pulp and paper industry, and municipal solid organic waste incl. food residues). Through optimisation of European waste recycling logistics and development of efficient low-risk conversion pathways, high overall carbon yields > 45% can be obtained while reducing greenhouse gases emissions > 80 %.
Award for “the world's most green solar panel”
SINTEF has played a part in revolutionising solar panel production – and here’s the proof! In connection with the Solar Impulse Foundation’s recently-published report, the “Eco-Solar” EU Project was awarded the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label” for developing efficient and more environmentally friendly solar panel concepts. SINTEF is the coordinator for this project.
This is what you need to know about CCS – Carbon Capture and Storage
Why is there so much talk about storing CO2 underground? Doesn’t it cost more than it’s worth? Here we provide the research scientists’ answers and explanations of why CCS is climate technology that we are completely dependent on. And yes, this can be performed in a safe manner.
