SINTEF Industry Process Technology
RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
SINTEF works closely with industry and academia with the aim of reducing and eliminating emissions, cutting costs, making industrial processes more green and sustainable. In addition, we focus on innovation and advanced production to create new industries and jobs. SINTEF can offer access to unique infrastructure and academic networks. We use our process technology expertise across the entire value chain from raw materials through processing to products to increase value creation in industry and solve tomorrow's challenges.
Multiphase Flow Laboratory
SINTEF Multiphase Flow Laboratory is one of the world's largest multiphase test facilities.
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.
PLASTICENE - Development of tools for increased resource utilisation, circularity and regulatory support of plastic use in Norway
PLASTICENE will build new knowledge and address processes important for increased plastic circularity and effective plastic waste management with the aim of supporting improved plastic material utilization and protecting the environment from plastic pollution.
VirtuOSA - Virtual Surgery in the Upper Airways – New Solutions to Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment
The current project aims at enabling key technology for patient-specific diagnostics and treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). When evaluating treatment options, clinicians are currently relying on general guidelines and personal experience, but they are lacking objective and predictive decision support tools. This project will provide required insight and software tools for computer-aided diagnostics and treatment of OSA through the promotion of Virtual surgery. Thereby, OSA patients can be treated more targeted, with reduced risk for the patient and reduced cost for society.
RecirkIrRu – Recycling of Iridium and Ruthenium at KAR
The RecirkIrRu project's goal is to demonstrate the effective extraction of valuable Iridium (Ir) and Ruthenium (Ru) from waste material into valuable intermediates for K.A. Rasmussen's further processing. The extraction will be possible by developing and boosting innovative, efficient, and environmentally friendly extraction processes suggested by SINTEF.
SINTEF researchers awarded the prestigious RCS Horizon award
Chemists all over the world can now grow virtual crystals with the new software CrystalGrower. SINTEF's Duncan Akporiaye and Bjørnar Arstad are among the researchers that developed the software and were awarded this year's Horizon award for their achievement. The award is given by The Royal Chemistry Society (RCS).
SINTEF and ACC join forces to make industry emissions-free
CO₂ emissions are difficult to avoid in several industrial processes, but with CCS technology these emissions can be removed. SINTEF and Aker Carbon Capture (ACC) are now continuing their collaboration to deliver the CO₂ capture solutions of the future.
CO2 as a raw material becomes a "game changer" for the industry
CO2 emissions equivalent to what 2,200 cars produce in a year can be turned into new products using biotechnology. In the EU project PyroCO2, the greenhouse gas CO2 will become a profitable business, at the same time the project will contribute to zero emissions and a sustainable economy.
