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).
New laboratory and SINTEF's battery researchers will boost Norwegian competitiveness on batteries
There is a global knowledge race in all parts of the value chain related to the production, use and reuse of batteries. The independent Norwegian research institute SINTEF is now investing NOK 45 million (4.5 million Euro) in a laboratory for the production and testing of battery cells that will open during 2021.
Where digitalization is a goldmine, for real
Billions could be saved and earned by digitalizing the mining and metals industry. China and Norway are working together to make it happen.
Researchers to test a solar farm at sea
The sun shines just as much out at sea as it does on land. There are also no restrictions on area use and seawater even helps to cool the solar panel technology. It’s only a matter of time before the first floating solar energy farms are installed at sea.
A robotic microplankton sniffer dog
The microscopic, free-floating algae called phytoplankton — and the tiny zooplankton that eat them — are notoriously difficult to count. Researchers need to know how a warming climate will affect them both. A new kind of smart, lightweight autonomous underwater vehicle (LAUV) can help.
Norwegian Project to Research Carbon Capture and Storage on Ships
A new project led by SINTEF Energy Research, the CCShip project, will collaborate with key research and industrial organizations to explore carbon capture aboard ships.
