A new thermal insulation bag will save lives
It is very likely that the human body develop hypothermia following an accident. Maintaining a patient’s body temperature on the way to hospital can be crucial to survival. The prototype of a new and improved solution is now ready.
CO2 DataShare launches open, digital data sharing portal – a push to advance innovation and deployment of CCS
On February 4 2020, CO2 DataShare launches a web-based digital portal for sharing reference datasets from pioneering CO2 storage projects. The new portal will enable researchers and engineers to improve their understanding, reduce costs and minimize uncertainties associated with CO2 storage.
This hydrogen lorry is powered by sunshine – from the north
Hauliers Asko in Norway, are among the first in the world to operate a goods vehicle that runs on hydrogen made from solar power – thanks to a collaborative effort by research scientists and other players.
SUMMER H2020 Kick-off meeting
SUMMER is an EU H2020 research project with 22 partners from all over Europe. SINTEF Ocean is one of the partners of the project, which is coordinated by AZTI in Spain. The project had its kick-off meeting in Bilboa, Spain, from 24th to 26th of September last year. The kick-off meeting was a partly joint meeting together with MEESO, another EU-H2020 project funded to study the mesopelagic challenges.
How much microplastic is there in your laundry basket?
Every time you wash clothes, you are releasing microplastics into the sea, but we know little about the amount and distribution of such material from different types of textile. Research scientists are now working on measuring and capturing microplastics in our laundry.
SF6: The Truths and Myths of this Greenhouse Gas
The atmospheric concentration of the highly-potent greenhouse gas SF6 has never been higher. Fingers have been pointed at the expanding renewables industry, but is that a fair assessment?
Making future transport more climate friendly
The world's transportation network is constantly growing. "Green asphalt" and sustainable bus transportation will ease the environmental impact of future transport routes.
Putting off old age on the Norwegian shelf
Sand in the oil stream with the risk of well collapse is a well-known problem when sandstone reservoirs approach depletion. Advanced sensors and a super machine are helping research scientists to find the threshold at which profitable production ceases. This can increase the lifetime of reservoirs.
