NTNU will lead European sustainability project
Through the Research Centre on Zero Emission Neighbourhoods (FME ZEN) in Smart Cities, NTNU has received funding from the EU to research sustainable plus energy neighbourhoods in Europe. SINTEF and OBOS are partners.
Changing the food processing industry
The iProcess project for a more sustainable food production and to reduce the amount of the climate emissions, the flexible robotic automation technology will enable to increase raw material utilization, reduce food loss and waste, and to cope with biological variation of raw material from fish to wheat.
C-capture to work with SINTEF in Norway to validate its carbon capture technology
C-Capture, the designer of world-leading and innovative chemical processes for carbon dioxide removal, is to work with Norway’s SINTEF on a new phase of its research and development programme.
Recently-developed material makes hydrogen production more efficient
Norwegian scientists have developed a material which can make hydrogen from water vapor, instead of liquid water. It pays off, because heat is cheaper than electricity.
Seaweed and kelp are more than food
Algae cultivation is popular, but good uses for the raw material are still lacking. Researchers in Norway are set to do something about this, with the goal of fully using this resource.
These experiments are key to being able to store lots of CO2 safely in the subsurface
When energy researchers carry out experiments to investigate safe and efficient CO2 transport on the roof of the thermal power engineering laboratories at Gløshaugen, Trondheim, the noise they make will be like a jet engine.
Renewable energy also viable in developing countries
How can we supply renewable energy to Indonesia, whose large population is spread over more than 6,000 islands?
Autonomous quality platform for zero defect manufacturing
The EU-project QU4LITY aims to build an autonomous quality platform for zero defect manufacturing in industrial factories in Europe. In June, the first general assembly took place.
