Recirculating off-gas contributes to carbon capture
Producing silicon results in large carbon dioxide emissions, but recirculating it can remove contaminants more efficiently.
Six factors that will determine the cost of offshore wind power
Large cost cuts are achievable for both floating and bottom-fixed wind farms in the future. If we do this correctly, floating wind turbines will be able to compete with bottom-fixed wind turbines by 2030.
Ammonia – the key to making long-haul shipping green
Relatively simple adaptation could make the cargo ships of the future completely green. The technology is based on the chemical compound ammonia, some extensive number crunching and one or two engine modifications.
Ocean engineering collaboration across the Atlantic
In March 2020, SINTEF Ocean signed a collaboration agreement with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) to advance research and innovation in ocean engineering. This new collaboration was announced virtually on June 17, 2021.
Europe's largest PEM electrolyser for hydrogen production in operation – the capacity will tenfold the coming years
The REFHYNE project, backed by a European consortium, will accelerate hydrogen production, and contribute to Europe’s goal to achieve climate neutrality.
Combating marine waste and ghost fishing with new materials
Ghost fishing and plastic waste from the fisheries industry is becoming a major environmental problem. Can we address the issue by using degradable plastics? Scientists at a new research centre are aiming to find the answers and develop the systems we need.
Major wind research centre kicks off its activities
TRONDHEIM, NORWAY – The NorthWind research centre on wind energy launched its activities today with its first General Assembly.
Robots with visual and tactile sensing can prevent tons of food waste
Intelligent food handling by robots can boost productivity and reduce waste in the production chain. Meet the robot with visual and tactile sensing, capable of handling compliant food objects.
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).
